uGet + Transifex = Easy to Use Translation Management PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 11 June 2013 03:32 | Written by Michael Tunnell


We are very excited to announce that we have added our project to the Transifex's Translation Management System at


This system is allow uGet's translators an easy way to manage, submit, update and add localization to the project. uGet supports 15 Languages right now and all of them have been migrated to Transifex for easy updating. New languages are welcome and hopefully Transifex will make the process much easier. My favorite features of Transifex so far are the progress bar and line tracking. Progress is tracked and displays how close to complete a translation is and the line tracking makes it easy to find any lines that may have been missed before and you can easily sort the lines by what has and hasn't been translated.


I am very excited to start using Transifex more and more to make uGet more and more accessible to as many languages as possible. Thank you very much to Raphael Groner of the uGet German Team for suggesting we use this system!


Below are intructions on how to become a uGet Translator or just to get access to your current language on Transifex...

uGet Reaches 100,000 Downloads! PDF Print E-mail

We are excited to announce that uGet has recently reached and exceeded 100,000 Downloads! This number will only grow so obviously we are excited about the future of uGet. Thank You to all the uGetters out there doing your part to share and grow the uGet community. This number is probably much larger when it comes to installs though because at the time Distros do not provide a way to see how many times your app is installed directly from their repos but hopefully that changes soon. We'd love to know exactly how many users we have as well as how many on each distro.


Thanks again to all of the uGetters and looking forward to another 100,000 and more!

The uGet team has been rather mysterious for quite a long time to a point that most people who have heard of uGet are not aware of the size of the team or lack thereof much less the individuals working on the project. This mystery was essentially an accident because we didn't think it was very important for people to know who was working on uGet but that all they needed to know that someone was. I realized that was a bit misguided because people like to know who develops the software they use and some may even want to express their gratitude for such software. Not to mention, there may be some developers out there that may see there is room for them to join the team.


We have decided to pull back the curtain and tell people who we are and what we do for the project. Also we are using this opportunity to credit and thank the people who make contributions to the project, such as language translators.


Everyone who contributes to the project is greatly appreciated whether that be from developers to translators, from donators to bug reporters and everyone else...but there are some people who go beyond and contribute a significant amount of time and effort to the project and the following page also features them as well as the official team.

Ambiance Tray Icons


Radiance Tray Icons


First of all, I would just like to apologize again for missing this before the release of 1.10.3 but unfortunately we didn't so until we can address this and release a permanent fix, I decided to package up the icons separately for those who would like to use them as soon as possible. This download is just a quick fix and will require root to overwrite the existing icons. You'll find the download and the How To after the break...
