Localizing the editor: changing language

You can now change the language used for the BEE editor's user interface as part of the configuration parameters passed to the plugin.

The language value needs to be passed in the configuration file in ISO 639-1 format with nation sub-code (4 letters). The editor will fallback to the default language (en-US) if the language specified is not supported or the format is incorrect.

    Hi there,
    we're eveluating beefree for integration into our CRM right now, and I seriously love this tool. Two questions though:
    - We'd need a german language file as most of our customers won't use an editor in english. We can translate it on our own, but it seems this isn't possible as of now?
    - Can you customize the main templates you select at the beginning to give people a better starting point? We need to include a logo (which we already store in another part of the product) and a legal disclaimer at the bottom for example.

    Hi Patrick, we just started a collaboration to add the German language. Follow this article to be updated.
    About templates, you can built your own with the contents that you need: build them as messages and use the generated JSON as templates for your users.

    Hi, Can you tell me when you will add an English-UK version? At the moment using this plugin within our existing product has a different language set and looks odd compared to everything else.

    we would love to use your plugin for our CRM but we need to have it translated to Czech language, is it possible to provide you with our translation, or to help you to make one?

    Hi Jiří,

    Thanks for your interest in BEE Plugin!

    Yes, would you be interested in translating the BEE editor text strings in Czech and make this language available?

    We offer a 10% discount on BEE Plugin paid plans for translators.

    Most of our translators are BEE Plugin customers who collaborate on a long term basis, mainly to keep the languages updated when we add new text strings. If you're interested, we'll send you the PO file with the text strings to translate and let you know our full translation workflow.

    Let us know. Thanks!

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    I would love to. We are developing a SaaS CRM currently in private alfa version, so we would use free plan until the public release is that OK with you?

    You can contact me via email I use on this profile if needed.

    Hi there! We're already using the bee3 plugin and love it! We have some prospective clients in Thailand and Malaysia, however, local languages are a must. Do you plan on supporting those languages soon? Can we help out with bringing those translations to life somehow?

    Hi Guillermo Padilla,

    In "LeadSquared", we are already in a process of supporting the following languages -

    Vietnamese (vi-VN)
    Hind (hi-VN)
    Thai (th-TH)
    Arabic (ar-SA)

    We would like to know by when we can expect these languages to be supported in BEE plugin.
