The following table details the current state of the translations of the LyX GUI for the LyX development branch (version 2.4.0dev), which will become the next major release.

For the translation status of the stable branch (version 2.3.3dev), please refer to this page.


  • Language: The supported languages. The list is ordered by completeness.
  • Translated: The number of translated messages.
  • Fuzzy: The number of fuzzy messages; these are not considered for LyX output but solely serve as a hint for the translators.
  • Untranslated: The number of untranslated messages; the default language (i.e., English) will be used instead.
  • The color indicates completion status:
    • dark green: translation completed.
    • light green: translation more than 66% completed.
    • orange: translation more than 50% completed.
    • red: translation less than 50% completed. These translations are likely to be dropped from future releases of LyX, if no further work is being done on them.
