Start OpenCPN, select Options then select User Interface.

Under Language select the Chinese language.
Click OK and restart OpenCPN.

That should do it.

yaohone...
Any reason you don't use the prebuilt packages we provide. If you run the local build without installing it, it certainly won't find the language files necessary.

I don't know what and if you missed, really Would say that possibly building the installer, installing it and running the installed product, not from the build directory?
Again, any reason why you don't just use the packages we provide?

Re: About change language

Well, I would suggest you first write the plugin's code and then care about the translations. OpenCPN's primary language is English, so it is kind of a good idea to use it as your plugin can than be translated at https://crowdin.com/project/opencpn as all the rest of them...
