ABP is already translated to 22 languages in Maxthon for PC project:
We got texts to translate more than one month ago...

ABP provided Maxthon the Translation Memory, so they can start parsing the strings into the format Maxthon is using.

Some parsing issues, looks like we found a solution as outlined by Andriy (Crowdin' employee)

Hi all,

The reason why most of strings were not automatically translated while running pre-translate is that original AdBlock Plus project ( has English, US source language but Maxthon's AdBlock Plus project has English source language. There are 2 solutions:

1) Maxthon should re-create the project with English, US as the source language;

2) Some modifications are needed in the TM files Job attached recently ("en-US" nodes should be replaced by "en"). In order to help you, I have already prepared TM files that will work in your current project, please see the attachments. Before uploading them in the project I suggest you to clear current project's TM. Kindly follow this link (you should be logged in as user "Maxthon"):

Click the "Clear TM" button situated across "AdBlock Plus" TM. Afterwards, upload attached files in the project TM. Run pre-translate, everything should work fine.

Please download TM files here:

Hope you will be able to generate correct INI files the nearest time.

We spend lot of time to translate it and now you do not want our translations from:
That pissed me off! I do not have a decent words...

@Dev CZ:
Our apologies for this, there has been a bit of miscommunication between us and Maxthon regarding the strings and which Crowdin' project to use. Eventually we decided to use separate Crowdin' projects because translating ABP is a challenge, and we would like to have our translators being able to approve the suggestions without having to go through thousands of strings.

Again, I apologize for this, and completely understand that this pissed you off.

Two Crowdin' projects have been setup:


NL, DE, CN-ZH, CH-TW, ES, RU have all been translated. Over the following days we'll work on involving ABP translators to support other languages.
