Eclipse Cloud DevTools Contributor Award: Internationalization for Eclipse Theia

Monday, May 16, 2022 - 15:20 by John Kellerman

The Eclipse Cloud DevTools contributor award this month goes to the Arduino team, led by Stefano Visconti, for contributing internationalization capabilities to Eclipse Theia. Congratulations and thank you for this and other great contributions!

As you might know, the new Arduino IDE 2.0 is based on Eclipse Theia. As highlighted in this adopter story, Arduino does not only benefit from Eclipse Theia, but they also regularly and strategically contribute to it as the next generation of Eclipse. One recent contribution was the full support for internationalization in Eclipse Theia, provided by Mark Sujew at TypeFox. As companies from all around the globe adopt Theia to build custom IDEs and tools, the ability to localize them is a critical feature for the platform.

Theia does not only provide the mechanism for translating the UI, it also provides language packs for a growing number of languages. If you’re missing a language, we are happy for contributions!

We want to thank Arduino for this great addition to the Theia ecosystem and congratulations for winning the award!

This Eclipse Cloud DevTools contributor award is sponsored by EclipseSource, providing consulting and implementation services for web-based tools, Eclipse GLSPEclipse Theia, and VS Code.
