We are approaching final stages of testing 12.2, so vast majority of text strings is most likely not going to change a lot. Which means we can safely start translations without worrying about doing the same work twice, so I welcome all translators registered on transifex to jump in and bump translation progress for their language to 100% :)

Few notes:
- please keep all special symbols in place - %n and %1 etc are placeholders and MUST be kept ("Copy source string" button is your friend);
- keep number of brackets the same, make sure you have (no) "." at the end just like in the original source;
- do not translate Dash (Core), translating "dashes" is ok however;
- use "Suggestions" to follow more or less the same terminology and save your time;
- you can "borrow" translations for some strings from bitcoin https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tree/master/src/qt/locale , they are far from being accurate sometimes but can serve as a good start;
- probably smth else I can't remember right now, feel free to ask

Do you need a Spanish hand here? :)
@Damian Walker is already at it afaik but you can help too I guess :)
The language is quite technical though, so you have to understand some background to translate it properly.
Have you worked on translation of any other crypto projects before? Bitcoin maybe?
Any other examples of previous work?

This address is coming up as invalid on flare and Elbereth's faucets : yjGZLzSSoFfTFgLDJrgniXfYxu3xF9xKQg I copied the address from the wallet with the copy command, it looks correct. How can this happen? Is it a bug?

Your question should be in https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/v12-2-testing.17412/#post-143024
Your testnet address is correct and working: https://test.explorer.dash.org/address/yjGZLzSSoFfTFgLDJrgniXfYxu3xF9xKQg
Try the other faucets, 1-2 of them are working usually: http://test.faucet.masternode.io/ https://test.faucet.dash.org/

Everything seems to be working ok on testnet, so we are going to finalize testing and release v12.2 pretty soon(tm). So if you want your language translation to be fixed/included in 12.2, you have to hurry up. Note that only translations with 80%+ progress are going to be updated/included. Otherwise, you'd have to wait for future minor releases (if there are going to be any).

Translations part 2: https://github.com/dashpay/dash/pull/1676

Actually Vietnamese is in the new update, it's transifex that had an issue. Was it you who did the translation 2 years ago? I forget.

I updated it on transifex, actually there are about 1/5th of the translations that are in english. Could you update them if you have time and verify the old ones? If you can do it by Thursday I can include it in the next release.

Yeah it's my fault for forgetting to add it to current version, sorry about that. Great it will be added to latest version and uploaded sometime today. Apple takes a little bit of time to review. But I think we should have it on the appstore by early next week.

Actually I'm sorry, there are 3 more files for you to translate when you have time, they are really small though (only a few phrases) and I forgot to add them before. I uploaded them to transifex.

Same time ago I've created a small utility which is able to recycle translation from other coins on Transifex. It can save a lot of time as many resources are the same comparing bitcoin (eventually any other coin) and dash. It helped me a lot to"translate" many strings for Slovak language. Anyone interested to try it out?

Hi xsedivy, how does your utility work? Transifex offers a feature to merge translation memories from different projects but not (as far as I know) from different organisations. This could be quite useful!

it is quite simple. You just download already translated strings from Bitcoin project - it is possible to do so if you are member of their team as well. Then you download strings for translation from Dash project an use the tool. Then you just upload the modified file back to Transifex. As I'm member of Bitcoin team I can actually download all languages from there. I can share borh, the tool and files from bitcoin to you, just let me know how:) Or you can just send me your language file and I can send you updated file back for you to upload...

@UdjinM6 actually if you give me write access to all languages (currently I can only translate Slovak) I can recycle translation for all Dash languages...

I hope you do not over write our already translated strings, thought i have backups for safety.

@UdjinM6 Can you always take latest translation from Transifex before newer core wallet release? I've finalized translation way before 12.2.2. for Slovak, but it was not reflected in the wallet. If possible of course:) Thx
