Steem Keychain Progress Update 3 - Localization

As promised in the Steem Keychain proposal, we will post regular updates to show our progress.

Version 1.7 is finally live and it finally brought up localization.

Apart from a few bug fixes, most of the work time has been dedicated to this feature that, after a big refactor, allows Steem Keychain to be used in multiple languages. Nothing to setup, the extension will simply follow the default language of your browser if it is supported, if not it will default to English.

Supported languages

As of now, Steem Keychain is available in English, Spanish (translations by @healthrecipes), Korean (translations by @dakeshi), Chinese (Simplified and Traditional translations by @mimiruby) and French (translations by @stoodkev). Thanks a lot to the translators and especially to @dakeshi that helped a lot with the testing and debugging of the feature. We will keep rolling out new languages progressively, following the needs of the community.

Next steps

We will continue going down the list of features detailed in the SPS proposal, with a particular focus to the following :

  • Give support for multiple keys and multisig accounts
  • Give further support to Keychain integration to Communities

Feature requests

We are listening to the community. Do not hesitate to drop feature requests on our Github repository or contact me on Discord (@stoodkev#8281)

Thank you!

On behalf of our team, a big thank you to the community for helping us fund Steem Keychain through SPS.

This post has beneficiary rewards set to 50% on @steem.dao and 50% on @sbdpotato

    Is there a way to disable the Witness ad at the bottom of the Steem Keychain pop-up window? (I have already voted for @yabapmatt and @aggroed for witness)

  • @vikisecrets

    Bug report: The content often does not fit in the Steem Keychain pop-up window and is cropped at the bottom like in this example:


  • @wakeupkitty

    How about support for mobile users?

    Brilliant tool to make our life easier on the chain - am a fan. If you need to support for local German language version please let me know.

  • @nathen007

    Love Keychain but please, why can't we use it on mobile devices? Steemconnect is horrendous on mobile and Steem generally is terrible to use on mobile. No one seems to push mobile use as a priority but yet that's the number one key to mass adoption. No one apart from techies sit in front of a PC or laptop all day, we are all on our phones and tablets!!

  • @cwow2

    Not sure if its needed, but I can translate keychain into danish.

  • @neddykelly

    Thanks for the great service and keeping us updated. I've only just returned to steem and was wondering why the partiko app I used to love the notifications stopped working it only took me to join the discord server to find that the project has been abandoned?!

    Hello, Are you aware that the link you supply to delegate to bots =>

    goes to after the inputs are filled in (I fill my user name and therising) which gives an error "There's nothing here, yet."

    I am therefore unable to delegate to therising (probably other ones as well) This has been going on for at least 2 weeks. Earlier I was using to delegate to therising however that one went bust.

    Also, how to delegate the new HIVE coins? Thanks.
