As Android is the open source, the translation of the localization for all languages should be the work on the same principle. How can I contribute to the translation of system messages and the user interface for some specific language?

    Android is OpenSource, yes, however as Google is the one who controls what is included into the next release. See source.android.com/setup/contribute Note that contributing requires creating a full fledged AOSP development environment which requires a Linux system, dozens of downloaded GB, hundred of GB on the hard disk and several hours to set-up and build. – Robert Dec 22 '18 at 16:23
  • Thank you Robert, so there is no more direct way for the language translation contribution? – Ilya Yevlampiev Dec 22 '18 at 17:25

    From Google perspective any contribution is equal, just changing one line requires the whole process. – Robert Dec 22 '18 at 17:46
