    Hello, neighbors and friends...

    I am a long-time user of ASUS-WRT Merlin firmware and have notice that some sentences aren't translated (i.e, the blocking pages when parental control is activated) and I would like to translate them by modifying the /www/ES.dict file, but I get an error as it is a read-only file system...

    So, How could I change the ES.dict file (wouldn't mind to share after).

    Thanks in advance.

    You would either have to host the file on a USB then mount it upon startup, or submit a pull request to the main repo so the changes can be added to the firmware.

    I don't make any change to the dict files, because these are very difficult to merge with upstream changes from Asus. Merging the webui code is already one of the most difficult parts of merging a new GPL, I don't want to make it even more problematic.

    One could always do the translations and submit a diff back to Asus upstream from RMerlin's branch - Asus may appreciate the effort.
