MuseScore på dansk - MuseScore in Danish

• Feb 16, 2009 - 16:04

Is there anyone who can make the MuseScore in Danish?

Er der nogen som kan lave MuseScore på dansk.

There must be a GNU GPL programør out there who can make it.

Der må være en GNU GPL programør derude et sted der kan lave det.

MuseScore is a great program even for beginners.

MuseScore er et fantastisk program selv for nybegyndere.


Hi swolff,

It's really easy to get started with translation MuseScore

That's all you need to get started. Once you have a few strings translated, upload them in a post on this translation forum and we'll make sure it gets committed.

In case you rather would like to translate the website, instead of the software, let me know. can be setup to Danish in a matter of minutes. Translating the 5 menu pages is done in 1 hour.

That's perfect swolff! I added your updated ts file to the MuseScore repository so once there is a new prerelease, it will include Danish. Normally every 2 weeks there is a new Windows prerelease which you can download at

Every now and then, new strings are introduced in the MuseScore software so it is important to check on the latest ts file which you can find at…

Concerning the website, I'm preparing the Danish interface. I will post the translation instructions in another comment.

Anyhow, keep up the good work! Lot's of people from Denmark will benefit from your work.

Hi swolff,

I enabled the da interface for

First some stand alone text strings need to be translated:

  • Free music composition & notation software
  • Download Free - Now
  • Version xxxx
  • Licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, 2002-2008 Werner Schweer and others

Can you provide the translation in a comment for each one of these strings?

The first page to start translating is the musescore teaser page.
You can translate this page following these instructions. After this page, you can translate the 5 menu pages in the right sidebar (download, features, screenshots, development, links) in the exact same way.

Once this is all done, we can proceed with translating the handbook, but be aware that keeping the handbook up to date, i.e. keeping it in sync with the English translation, requires some dedication.

Don't hesitate to leave a comment if you have problems with anything.

Hi Swolff,

Perhaps you didn't find the time yet to start translating, but could you perhaps simply translate the teaser page? This way, users who land on can read what musescore is about in Danish.

I you can't find the time in the coming days/weeks, let me know because it's better to switch off the Danish translation of the website, until you have found the time.

Hi Swolff,

Thanks for the translation. However, it wasn't necessary to put it in a comment. There is an online translation workflow which makes it very easy to translate the content. Here are the step by step instructions for translating the teaser page page. It's exactly the same for the other pages in the right sidebar menu.

  1. Go to and click on the translate tab which will bring you to
  2. You will see that the Danish translation of the teaser page is set to 'Not Translated'
  3. So, click on the 'add translation' link which will bring you to
  4. Finally, on this page, replace all the English text by the Danish translation: The title field as well as the body field.
  5. Once done, click on the Save button at the bottom.

You can do the same for the features, screenshots, development and the links page. The handbook page is for when this is done.


I have seen the discussion about Danish Musescore. But that is from 2009. Is there at danish version to day. 2013. I have tried to download, but I live in Germany and I can only get the German version.
