Interlink: Looking for language packs

Post by nimanima » 2021-03-10, 23:40

Hi, I found a German dictionary add-on for Interlink which I installed, then changed the useragent locale, however this seems not to do what in Fossa does the language pack. Interlink is still in English. Where are the language packs hiding?

OMG! :crazy:
The language packs for Interlink are hidden as damn sneaky. They can only be found at Easter - like all well-hidden easter eggs. Start searching in about 3 weeks - and please, if you find one, share it with us! :think:

There are no Language Packs for Interlink Mail & News. It is an en-US product only.

I see, it seems that indeed Thunderbird and Seamonkey are the only email clients on the market, then.

I don't know what is so funny about my question, Tohuwabohuix. Do you not prefer to use programmes in your own language?
Maybe you can at least explain to me what function this German dictionary has. What does it do?

That's a ridiculous statement. Interlink is a fantastic mail and news client. Whether it serves your particular desire for localized UI or not doesn't make it any less of a client "on the market".

Well with that attitude I suppose Interlink wouldn't be a good fit for you.. And I am ok with that. I'm not currently making any money off it and I don't care if you use it or not. Though it does give me a feeling good feeling when people actually enjoy it for what it is and what I offer. But that is not a deciding factor on producing it.

I'm sorry (or maybe not), for my jokes about your equating of dictionaries with language packs - but sometimes it's too funny when people want to use a non-mainstream product (what is welcomed) but then obviously don't bother to acquire the most basic knowledge of certain features by themselves - and then express a criticism that is unclouded by knowledge. Criticism of an excellent piece of free software just because the author does not sacrifice his entire lifetime to translate it into all languages of the world for free. Okay, your question - dictionaries are, among other things, for spell checking - not for displaying the interface in a certain language. Language packs are responsible for the latter. My mother tongue is not English either, but I used, for example, Pale Moon when it was only available in English (version 3.5.something, when I recall it correctly) - simply because I prefer it to mainstream browsers. And I do the same with Interlink. Interlink is so much better than Tb or Sm that I can easily get over the fact that it is not in German (or in Bavarian in my case ;) ) - and I train my English at the same time - wonderful :thumbup:

You could have just searched for dictictionary + Firefox or Thunderbird on https://duckduckgo.com - then you would have received many informative links, e.g.:

https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... age-tools/ :idea:
