That will probably happen eventually!

Right now we are working on rewriting the script completely, and making it easier to install.

I would wait, until we write a stable python version of the project that works properly :)

Well that wasn't an answer to my question: "How to translate timekpr?" I've seen at the forums that there already is spanish and hungarian translations and I would like to add swedish and finnish... This is almost the one I've been seeking!

Petri, where did you find the translations? I have not seen any...

If you want to translate it just get the source files from launchpad and edit them. It is the only way at the moment. Savvas and me will try to add i18n support in a later version, but we are both rather busy at the moment. With i18n translating timekpr will be easier and any translation will be able to keep up to date when a new version is released.

Go to for i18n translation of timekpr. Please help if you can translate timekpr!

Done the translation to swedish (not the best but will work for people who prefer swedish before english version) and done some advertising in the finnish ubuntu forum.

How to install translations?
My Edubuntu is set up to Spanish, but when running timekpr all messages are displayed in english.

I do not find in the GUI a way to set up languaje.

Thanks in advantage.

SONi: You can do a translation on A spanish translation has already been made, but was not included with the release of 0.3.1. It will be included in a future release though!
