Adding new language#

If your language is not in above list, feel free to create a locale package based on the en_US lanugage pack and send us a pull request. For reference, you can refer to the pull request of adding the Azerbaijani language as a sample.

Do it step by step:

  1. Fork antd and git clone to local, switch to feature branch, pull it to make sure it's up-to-date, create a new branch based on feature branch, all work will be done in it.

    git clone git@github.com:<your organization>/ant-design.git
    cd ant-design/
    git remote add upstream origin git@github.com:ant-design/ant-design.git
    git checkout -b <your new branch name>
  2. Add the language support for rc-picker, for example this.

  3. Add the language support for rc-pagination, for example this.

  4. Wait for rc-picker and rc-pagination to release the new version containing the above.

  5. Update the rc-picker and rc-pagination versions in antd and add the remaining other necessary content for the language. for example Azerbaijani PR.

  6. Add a test case for the language in index.test.js.

  7. update snapshots, you may also need to delete node_modules, lock files (yarn.lock or package-lock.json) and reinstall at first.

    npm run test -- components/locale-provider -u
  8. Add the language to i18n list docs/react/i18n.en-US.md and docs/react/i18n.zh-CN.md.

  9. Watch out the CI status, and if it failed, look at the logs and make some changes until it all passes.

  10. Ok, now everything is ready for review.
