[Info for translators] Translation of manpages
« on: August 24, 2007, 05:25:56 PM »

Starting with todays tarball, there is a manpages.pot in docs/man/ folder of the tarball. I created this with po4a to make it possible for you to translate the manpages in the same quality you do it for the app already.

Just copy this file to manpages-XX.po where XX is you language-code (things like es_mx are supported aswell), and use your favorite app to work with. I'll set up a wiki-page where you can read more details about this.

In tomorrows tarball will be the script translate-manpages in src/utils/scripts/. With this script you can create the translated manpages to see if everything worked fine. If you can't or don't want to install po4a: No problem, just post the .po here or send it directly to me, I'll do the rest for you.

First reply to this topic. :o

I noticed that there are some files with the ending "-hu.1" (like: amule-hu.1). But not all of the files under /docs/man have a "Hungarian version".
If I copy the manpages.pot to manpages-hu.po and edit them, I have to translate the whole thing (for all files) again, don't I?
However only the translation for amulegui.1 seems to be missing.

Can you provide the current Hungarian translation (in gettext format), so I could complete it?

Sorry, I'm fiddling with the new config format for this, could last a few days, docs about this seem very rare atm.

Finally it's done. The new format of the config has been adapted, the sourcefiles are updated, and the .pot is created.
Some .po files are already there, too, and the german one is finished and comitted.

For everyone that is intressted in translating this part of aMule, too, get your informations on:

http://wiki.amule.org/index.php/Translating_Docs

I'm sure you'll doing such a great work with this, like you already do with the program's messages.

Ok, I also did my homework and included the manpage translation statistics on the translation statistics page.
