Language support - Chinese

If I were to introduce this software to chinese users, it'd be helpful if the interface could be provided in their native language. If I am able to provide translations, would it be possible to add support for Chinese like you have with Japanese?

If this is Chinese there's already a language package shipping with MM but you can't set it via MM's Preferences:

No idea why you only can set the Japanese package via GUI, but here's a hack:

Somewhere in your MM's installation folder (NOT the meshmixer folder in Documents) there's a  folder "stringTable" containing two tables for Japanese and Chinese each. Now you need to rename the JP files to something else (or delete them) and use the former names for the CN.qm files.

This shows the path within Meshmixer on a MAC:

Now set MM to use Japanese in its Preferences and restart MM. It should run using the Chinese files now.

If you want to edit the translation tables (.qm files) you can use QtLinguist

Thanks for the detailed response and solution 🙂 Very helpful. Hopefully in future they will make it more accessible like JP support has been.
