Commonwealth English spelling in KDE

Software

If you're a use of KDE and would prefer to have the British English spelling instead of the Americanizationed English (is that a word), there are several ways to get it.

The KDE Localisation project has an en_gb team at http://www.kde.me.uk/index.php?page=kde-en-gb.

If you use KDE on FreeBSD like me, there is also a localisation tarball in the ports collection.

Now only if they had a Singlish version as well. Can you imagine it?

Salamat Datang ke KDE! Apa kabar? Program install fail. Wah lah. Hey ang moh, chicken are you?

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
