Yes we need to do some KDE work to sample more data and hopefully identify more existing problems…

I really should spend some time reading MS chs&cht, W3C CLREQ & JLREQ too.

And this need to be patched for 1.5.1:

  • Sec 1.0: add links to gnome, kde and launchpad translation teams; links to transifex and crowdin.
  • We need a sixth author or et al won't work. Yes Bai you have been chosen.

Oh yeah, and we can use the pretty word living standard instead of proposed draft.

Section "file header", sublevel "empty msgstr header", node "Plural-Forms":

遇到单复数内容含义不严格一致时,翻译依复数原文为准。也就是说,遇到 Last year%d years ago 成对出现,应直接译为 %d 年前

We should just translate the plural part.

I think I saw it else were... Not just on KDE apps.

It's Enlightenment, this should be more of a common case.

Addition to sec "alignment":

Do not attempt to use spaces (U+0020) to align text in GUI programs. If you have a good reason to do so, use some definite-width spaces like full-width CJK space (U+3000). Otherwise if you really want some alignment, try to rephrase your translation.

不要尝试使用空格(U+0020)来对齐 GUI 程序中的文字。如果你真的要对齐的话,首先试着调整用词,不行的话再考虑用 固定宽度 的空格(如全角空格 U+3000)填补空间。

Given:

msgid "<b>Message summary</b>\n"
"<b>New:</b> %d\n"
"<b>Unread:</b> %d\n"
"<b>Total:</b> %d\n"
"<b>Size:</b> %s\n"

Good:

# 新邮件 can be replaced with 新到
# But the original text is not aligned, and why do you even care about this?
msgstr "<b>邮件统计</b>\n"
"<b>新邮件:</b> %d\n"
"<b>未读:</b> %d\n"
"<b>总数:</b> %d\n"
"<b>大小:</b> %s\n"

Bad:

msgstr "<b>邮件统计</b>\n"
"<b>新邮件:</b> %d\n"
"<b>未  读:</b> %d\n"
"<b>总  数:</b> %d\n"
"<b>大  小:</b> %s\n"

Clarification in sec 3.1::5:

应使用全角引号 -> 应使用弯(全角)双引号,嵌套时按中文习惯单双交替。

I guess it's time to wrap up some 1.5.1 this Sunday (ISO-8601 week). Let's move KDE things to 1.6.

1.5.4, patch for KDE Semantic labels: (对于斜体)看到 <em> 应该考虑不换掉而请求上游按语言指定样式(<i>还是要换的),而 KDE 的 <emphasis> 则绝对不能换掉。
1.5.4, mention translate-toolkit for filetype conversion and py manipulation.
