Strings localization

    While the SAB provides option to translate the language and phrases used in an app, I find that the default translations are crappy, at least for the Indonesian one. Some of the default translations are unnatural and more than half of the total strings are left empty/not translated. I have to manually type the translation for each string every time I create a new project.

    Now, eventually I learned that I can edit sab-strings.txt in ‘info’ folder in SAB installation directory to override this default strings so that I don’t have to manually type the strings anymore. However, every time I update SAB, this file would be replaced by the new one and I’d have to edit this new file again.

    So my question is this: Is there any way I can contribute my part of Indonesian translated strings for the next version of SAB?

    I personally think it’d be useful to the others as well.

    If you send the strings to appbuilder_support@sil.org we can work on adding them to the product for the next time it is released.
