* Requirement for Translators and developers: gettext-0.11.5 http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/ Read the doc. However, the logic used is a bit different than the gettext logic * For translators: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org * For programmers: To be written * For creating a new catalogs, say LL_CC (e.g., fr, zh_CN): - Edit configure.in and add LL_CC to ALL_LINGUAS - run autoconf and ./configure (with your usual options) and check that the new "lang" appear in the list of "lang" Locale msg: prefix/share/locale ... LL_CC ... - cd to po/ - create a domain.LL_CC.po file for all files domain.pot: msginit -i fvwm.pot -l LL_CC -o fvwm.LL_CC.po msginit -i FvwmTaskBar.pot -l LL_CC -o FvwmTaskBar.LL_CC.po ... The --no-translator option can be useful under certain situation (e.g., you do not use the LL_CC locale). In this case you should edit the files you have created and in particular set the appropriate CHARSET. - Then, you can start the translation of fvwm.LL_CC.po, FvwmTaskBar.LL_CC.po ...etc NOTE: You should "make domain.LL_CC.gmo" before make install and test your translation visually! * make: - make [all] should do nothing (but, maybe, recreating the Makefile). "make install" install! But see the previous NOTE. - The following (re)build everything (safe): make po-update - If some messages have changed in some source files in "domain": make domain.pot-update update domain.pot. Then you can make domain.LL_CC.po to get the new messages for translation. After translation: make domain.LL_CC.gmo # create a binary mo file from the po one make install restart fvwm for visual testing. - Other targets: make update-gmo # build all the binary gmo files * Creation of a new domain: ask the email@example.com. Basically: - Update ALL_DOMAINS in configure.in - Add NEW_DOMAIN in configure.in - Create po/$NEW_DOMAIN.pot (xgettext) and add it to EXTRA_DIST (todo: remove this step) - Set the files which contains msg NEW_DOMAIN = file1 file2 ... in the beginning of po/Makefile.am - Add $(srcdir)/$(NEW_DOMAIN).pot: and $(NEW_DOMAIN).pot-update: in po/Makfile.am - Update $(POFILES): and update-po: in po/Makfile.am (todo: remove this step) * New instructions, Feb 19, 2013 (Dan Espen): - Got .po files from contributor. - Change configure.ac to add X to ALL_LINGUAS. - Generate .gmo files by doing: make fvwm.X.gmo FvwmScript.X.gmo FvwmTaskBar.X.gmo where X is the language.
