Suggestions and contributions are always welcome! Please first discuss changes via issue before submitting a pull request.


If the app isn't translated into your language yet and you'd like to help out, you can easily add translations with the following steps:

  1. The translation files can be found in src/main/i18n/translations. Duplicate the en.ts file as [LANG].ts, where [LANG] is the shortcode of your language.
  2. In the file you just created, replace the English translations with your own. Make sure they fit into the app's input fields.
  3. Import your file in the ALL_TRANSLATIONS object in src/main/i18n/i18n.ts.
  4. Add your language shortcode to the electronLanguages array in package.json.
  5. Submit a PR. Thank you!
