In Mendeley Desktop 0.6.3, we’re planning on adding support for community translations – this means that you can make it so that Mendeley Desktop uses your favourite language!
To do this:
- Install Qt Linguist – this is included with Qt, or available standalone for Windows and OSX.
- Download the translatable text in Mendeley Desktop.
- Open the file with Qt Translator, and translate the text.
- Email us the .ts file, and we’ll look at how to distribute it to other Mendeley users.

Hey there, great idea (though all scientific literature is english anyway nowadays^^) – but maybe a list of requests/actual people working on a specifc language would be nice? I could only provide a german translation and don’t know if there is either need or indeed already 20 ppl working on it…
You can check how many users from Germany already use Mendeley.
I guess that ~1% of them will be willing to make a translation.
For those who are interested in contributing to translations: for the time being we’ve postponed our translation efforts but please do still drop me an email on email@example.com – I will take note and contact you should we pick up on that again!
