Translation in authentik is done in two places. Most of the text is defined in the frontend in
web/, and a subset of messages is defined in the backend.
The frontend uses @lit/localize, and the backend uses the built-in django translation tools.
Please review the Writing documentation guidelines as they apply to documentation too.
To simplify translation you can use https://www.transifex.com/authentik/authentik, which has no local requirements.
- Node (any recent version should work, we use 16.x to build)
- Make (again, any recent version should work)
npm i in the
/web folder to install all dependencies.
Ensure the language code is in the
lit-localize.json file in
make web-i18n-extract to generate a base .xlf file.
The .xlf files can be edited by any text editor, or using a tool such as POEdit.
To see the change, run
make web-watch in the root directory of the repository.
