translate5 Linux installer and Linux/Windows updater is released

MittagQI - Quality Informatics
Dear Besucher,

translate5 development team is proud to announce that every user is now able to update translate5 on Linux and Windows with a few clicks.

Regarding installation, we did complement the translate5 windows installer (available since March) with an easy to use Ubuntu Linux installation procedure.

By the way: translate5 is a community open source project. The developments regarding installation and updates have been funded by beo, itl, oneword, smartspokes, text&form and MittagQI.

And another news: Finally translate5 got its own logo :-) and a relaunch of its project website at

Easy translate5 installation


For Windows, the translate5 development team is providing an easy to use installer.exe. In addition to translate5 and its dependencies, this executable installs the needed web server and database environment. This is done based on the Open Source XAMPP-package.


For Ubuntu Linux, we are providing an easy to use Linux installation manual. This manual shows you how to install the needed web server and database environment from scratch. In addition, translate5 installation itself is mainly a matter of executing the Linux installation procedure (a shell script) written for that purpose.

Users of other Linux distributions should easily be able to transfer the How-To to what they need.

Updating translate5 with a few clicks


So far, the installation based on translate5 windows-installer.exe could not easily be updated. By using the translate5 install-and-upate.bat, this is now a matter of a double-click.


The same as for Windows is now true for Linux. You just have to use the script instead of the Windows batch file ;-).
