Language, translations, and extensions

Updated 4 months ago

    MuseScore works with your "System" language (the one used for most programs, and generally depending on your country and the language settings of the PC, or account).

    Change language

    1. From the menu, select EditPreferences... (Mac: MuseScorePreferences...);
    2. In the General tab, select the desired language from the drop-down list in the Language section:

      Dialog: Edit / Preferences / General

    Resource Manager

    The Resource Manager is used to install and uninstall extensions, and to handle the update of translations. To access the menu use one of the following options:

    • From the menu bar, select HelpResource Manager.
    • From the menu bar, select EditPreferences... (Mac: MuseScorePreferences...), open the General tab, and click on the Update translations button.

      Dialog: Help / Resource Manager

    Install/uninstall extension

    To install or uninstall an extension:

    1. Select the Extensions tab in the Resource Manager.
    2. Select the extension.
    3. Click the Install or Uninstall button.

    Note: Extensions currently include the MuseScore Drumline (MDL) (as of version 3.0) and the MuseScore General HQ soundfont (as of version 3.1).

    Update translations

    To update translation(s):

    1. Select the Languages tab in the Resource Manager.
    2. Click on the Update buttons for the language(s) you want to update.

    Note: Almost all menus and dialogs will switch to the changed/updated translations immediatelly, but some won't use the them until the program is restarted.
