Hi Óvári,

First of all thanks a lot for the Hungarian translation and your comments on English strings.

Yes some strings exists but are blank, most of them are settings summary.
Even if we don't judge them necessary for the user to understand, some of our clients or people making changes might feel differently.
Existing empty strings will help us change that quickly.

So I won't add english source as I don't want them, but I won't remove them either as they might be necessary on a fork. If you encounter an empty string, just leave it empty and go to the next item.
I know this isn't ideal but this seems to be the best compromise.

Hello Sylvain,

There are a lot of strings in Weblate that are blank.

Can these strings please be removed or en source strings added?

Thank you

Hello everyone,

We are entering public beta stage for our upcoming 4.5.0 linphone-android release.

This version is a complete rewrite of the app using Kotlin (with coroutines) and modern Android components such as navigation, view models, data-binding, etc... The full list of changes is available in our CHANGELOG file: <>

The only downside is that for improvement sake, the current translations made by our community on Transifex can no longer be used, and because of the "Doctype Entity" feature we now use in our strings.xml files we can no longer use Transifex as traduction tool. That's why we have created our instance of Weblate, another web tool to simplify translation process, and it's available there: <>

Currently English & French are fully translated by us, and Chinese & Spanish have been started but aren't complete. And since our Weblate instance has been made public yesterday, I see someone already started the Dutch translation, so thanks a lot to that person.

We plan on releasing the new version by the end of the month, and all translations started by then will be included in it, so if you are motivated to help us we'll gladly accept all contributions.

Thanks in advance.
