Add language

Hello everyone,
I made a rough translation to my native language and wanted to test the translation locally but it doesn't show in drop down menu.
I followed instructions
How can I see translation on my test environment before I send it you?


Thanks for your interest in adding another translation for Proxmox projects.

To make a language show up on the web UI you would need to add it to the language_map which is located in the Utils.js file of the proxmox-widget-toolkit repo.

For a quick test you can just edit the installed /usr/share/javascript/proxmox-widget-toolkit/proxmoxlib.js on a Proxmox VE host, copy an existing line for a language and replace it with yours, using the ISO 639-1 code for the language, the language in native tongue and once in English under gettext (so that it can be translated).
It showed up after editing proxmoxlib.js like you wrote.
I will make more improvements before sending.
