Translation Feedback - Chinese (Simplified)

Please keep all feedback pertaining to the Chinese translation of Scrivener's UI to this thread.

NOTE: Please try to explain all issues in English, as we only speak English ourselves, although we will be passing all feedback on to our translators.



When posting suggestions for changing translations, I would be grateful if you could do it in this format from now on:

++ Place in Interface

"Current Translation" = "Suggestion"

"Another Translation" = "Another Suggestion"

For instance:

++ Main Menu:

"Navigation" = "Blah Blah"

"Outliner Options" = "Blah blah"

++ Inspector:

"Comments" = "Better Word"

++ Compile:

"Compile" = "Suggestion"

And so on. This will allow me to copy your suggestions straight into my new updating tools with very little editing and so ensure they are applied. If you would rather send me a file with all the suggestions, please just use the above format and put it into a plain text file. Thanks!

    A new beta is going out today in which the entire UI has been translated. (Please note that the tutorial and documentation are not translated.) Because Scrivener has been evolving a little during the translation period, there may well be a few phrases or words that are still in English because they changed or were added to Scrivener while the translators were working. Please let us know all problems you find, including any phrases you find that are still in English.

    Many thanks for this!

    Here is your 100% coupon for Scrivener 3:


    Just wait until Scrivener 3 is released, then, once it is available, go to buy the “Regular” macOS licence on our store and enter the above code into the “Coupon Code” field. That way you won’t be asked for payment details and will get a licence for free.

    Thanks again,

    I cannot locate these two in the menu. "Automatically Resize" "Facing Pages"

    Sorry, only just seen this. Not sure why they would be missing but here you go:


    "Automatically Resize" = "自动调整大小"

    "Facing Pages" = "对开页"


    Facing Pages = "对开页"

    Hello Keith,

    I am wondering if you could invalidate this MacOS coupon code in exchange for a Windows version? I thought it is for all platforms but turns out that I cannot use it on my Win 10……

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Hi Ziyao,

    The coupon was indeed for the macOS version since that was what the translation feedback was for! :) I’m happy to give you a Windows 100% code, though - here you go:


    All the best,

    Hi Keith,

    Thank you so much for this. I recently use Win 10 more. :)
    The reason I didn’t use the Mac coupon is that I bought the Mac version (via MAS) as my support for Scrivener. You make great products!
