Here are the steps to translate Elefant into a new language and submit it for inclusion in the project:

  1. Install a copy of Elefant from the latest master branch on Github.

  2. Once you have Elefant installed, log in and go to Tools > Languages. It will first build an index of all the text in the default install, then present you with a list of languages. Click Add language to add a new one.

  3. Enter the language name, code, etc. See here for a list of language codes. We recommend entering the language name in its own language, for example Français instead of French or Español instead of Spanish.

  4. Once the language has been added, click Edit to edit its translations.

  5. When you've finished your translation, find the translation file in the lang folder of your site. If you're comfortable using Github, you can submit your new translation through a Github pull request. Or you can paste the contents of the file into one of the following sites and then link to it in the Elefant forum under the I18n category and someone will add it to the project for you.
