Doesnt change interface language[Solved]


#1

Hi. Built KiCad from source. Everything work fine, but in doesn’t switch interface language.
When i pick another language it blink, but everything stays in English.


#2

If I try to change the language to anything else but English, KiCad starts yelling at me:

It might be that you have to install translation files separately before you can use them.


#3

No errors. Just blink interface and everything in English.


#4

If you are building from source, you’ll also need to build the translations from source (https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-i18n). Just do the standard cmake in a build directory and then make install.
