Hello fellow XML lovers and haters, the XML internationalization team proudly presents the initial release of the long awaited xml-i18n-tools package, codenamed "One bugreport less in bugzilla". The xml-i18n-tools module is based on code by Maciej, Darin and Kenneth. * What is it? The module contains some utility scripts and assorted auto* magic for internationalizing various kinds of XML files. This supersedes the earlier scripts that I (Kenneth) distributed to be checked into each module. In addition, it has an additional merging feature, currently only for oaf files. This feature might be extented to handle .desktop files and MIME files in the future. * Features o Automatically extracts translatable strings from oaf, glade, bonobo ui, nautilus theme and other XML files into the po files. o Automatically merges translations from po files back into .oaf files (encoding to be 7-bit clean). I can also extend this merging mechanism to support other types of XML files. Having the translations directly in the XML file is critical for some file formats, and very helpful for others. When one package installs a file and a program from another package might at some time read it, you need to have the translations directly in the file, since the app reading the data file will not know which message catalog to use. The beauty of this extract and merge system is that it works through the existing po mechanism, so translators will be able to work in their normal way, and be notified of strings that change, or new strings that are added, with existing tools. * How to use Please consult the README file in the xml-i18n-tools module for information about how to add xml-i18n support to your module. * Modules currently using xml-i18n-tools Gnumeric, OAF, Ammonite, Nautilus, Galeon, possible others. In order to build or translate these modules from cvs, you need to have xml-i18n-tools installed. * Note for translators The update.pl script is not used anymore by the modules depending on xml-i18n-tools. To update your translations, install xml-i18n-tools and do "xml-i18n-update LANGCODE" in the po/ directory you want to update. * Where to get? http://www.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/stable/sources/xml-i18n-tools/xml-i18n-tools-0.5.tar.gz RPMs are available from Eazel. Please look at: http://developer.eazel.com/download/eazel-redhat7/hourly/current or http://developer.eazel.com/download/hourly/current * Where to report bugs? http://bugzilla.eazel.com is the right place for this. Good luck, The XML internationalization team Maciej, Darin and Kenneth Thanks to all who has helped finding bugs and varifying that they are now gone! _______________________________________________ I18n-list mailing list I18nfirstname.lastname@example.org https://listman.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/i18n-list
