Subject [announce] l10n genLang and po files for languages.
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2013 23:12:51 GMT

For those interested in po files and the l10n process, the following is a
short status.

genLang can now extract all texts from our sources correctly and handles
.po files. genLang has also a mode (convert) where it can read "old" po
file and convert them to new format. My next step is to enhance the convert
function a bit, and then start on the source generation with languages (all

All sources are in svn in branches/l10n/l10ntools/source/gC* and gL*

I have also (with big help from jsc) collected all our languages, and found
a couple of strange things:
- Some languages was only present in pootle, and not used in our build
- Some languages was only present as sdf files (in extras) and not in
pottle (manual translation??)
- Many po/sdf files contained entries no longer used in our source files.

This is all cleaned, and you can find the total set of langauge po files in:
there you can also see the new po file structure (a lot less files).

We need slowly to start thinking about how to test and integrate the new

have a nice evening.
