UI Text

Text for UI elements, _layouts, and _includes grouped together as a set of translation keys. This is by no means a full-on i18n solution, but it does help make customizing theme text a bit easier.

The English1 main keys in _data/ui-text.yml are translated in the following languages:

  • Brazilian Portuguese (Português brasileiro)
  • Catalan
  • Chinese
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • Finnish
  • French (Français)
  • German (Deutsch)
  • Greek
  • Hebrew
  • Hungarian
  • Indonesian
  • Irish (Gaeilge)
  • Italian (Italiano)
  • Korean
  • Japanese
  • Malayalam
  • Myanmar (Burmese)
  • Nepali (Nepalese)
  • Norwegian (Norsk)
  • Polish
  • Persian (فارسی)
  • Romanian
  • Russian
  • Slovak
  • Spanish (Español)
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish (Türkçe)
  • Vietnamese

If you’re are interested in localizing them into other languages feel free to submit a pull request and I will be happy to look it over.

Many of the label based keys like meta_label, categories_label, tags_label, share_on_label, and follow_label can be left blank if you’d like to omit them from view. It really depends on you and if you want an even more minimal look to your site.

UI text labels

Note: The theme comes with localized text in English (en, en-US, en-GB). If you change locale in _config.yml to something else, most of the UI text will go blank. Be sure to add the corresponding locale key and translated text to _data/ui-text.yml to avoid this.

  1. en-US, and en-GB use YAML anchors to reference the values in en as to not repeat them.
