If you did not already find iCalamus in your native language but you would like to translate about 2.000 strings, just go ahead. We will provide you with instructions for localizing iCalamus.


  1. First of all, you should be very familiar with your own native language and one of the already existing iCalamus languages.
  2. iCalamus 2 runs under Mac OS X (10.8 or higher). So it's a good idea that you use a Mac with this version of Mac OS X, too.
  3. We recommend that you use the same tools which are used by our other localizers.
  4. You should keep in mind that we do not pay for your localization and will not agree to grant you any copyright of your translations if you commit them for a coming version of iCalamus.
  5. If you do not already own a legal match code of iCalamus, we recommend that you commit your translation first. He or she who commits a new native language first, gets a free iCalamus license.

Translation Tools for iCalamus.app

We recommend the usage of the following tool:

  • iLocalize
    This is an outstanding tool for all localizers, written by Jean Bovet of Arizona Software. And it's all you need for localizing the iCalamus application. Period.

Please don't change the layout of the various dialogs (.nib files) in your language. You might better report after the localization work is done, which dialogs should be resized to fit your localized strings. We will then adjust English first and based on English we'll adjust all other languages automatically – thanks to iLocalize.

Translation Tools for iCalamus Manual

If you want to localize the online manual as well, there is more to do. But you can master it in a short while. Just do a handful of pages per day.

We share the iCalamus manual sources on our Subversion server. So, you can never mix up stuff with other localizers as Subversion helps you to keep control of concurrent versions of thousands of files.

  • Subversion
    You need to install a subversion client on your Mac which will then manage your local working copy of the iCalamus manual sources.
    • svnX
      Use this simple Subversion GUI tool which offers all you need for normal localization work.
    • SmartSVN
      Alternatively use this really smart Subversion GUI which is a rich tool even in its unregistered version.
  • TextWrangler
    iCalamus manual sources are written in Unicode UTF-8 encoding. We recommend this free text editor which offers more than you can eat ...

Translation Tools for iCalamus Website

Our website is written in PHP. You will probably find it most comfortable to save the existing pages in HTML format and localize these HTML files. Just send them to us. We can generate the localized PHP files easily then.
