The QML runtime automatically loads a translation from the i18n subdirectory of the root QML file, based on the system language.

The files are created or updated by running:

lupdate qml-i18n.qml -ts i18n/base.ts

Translations for new languages are created by copying i18n/base.ts to i18n/qml_<lang>.ts The .ts files can then be edited with �{Qt Linguist}:

linguist i18n/qml_fr.ts

The run-time translation files are then generated by running:

lrelease i18n/*.ts


  • qml-i18n/qml-i18n.qml
  • qml-i18n/qml-i18n.qmlproject
