I18N progress 2.0

Reported by: dmik Owned by: poetzsch
Component: GUI Version:
Keywords: I18N NLS translation Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other

Description (last modified by poetzsch) (diff)

This is a continuation of ticket:234 which is intended for two purposes:

  1. Submit new translation source files by attaching them to this ticket.
  2. Report about performing synchronization of existing translation source files in the SVN repository.

Step 1 is done by contributors willing to add support for a new language to the VirtualBox product. An accepted translation file appears in the SVN repository and becomes available in the binary builds. Even after that, contributors remain responsible for updating translation files to keep them in sync with updates to the VirtualBox UI.

Step 2 is performed by the GUI maintainer at innotek before a new release (or after a major UI change) to inform contributors that translation files need to be updated.

Please read the document describing the translation process in detail  here.

A separate ticket for NLS mistakes/suggestion has also been created (#4503). Please subscribe to the ticket to monitor new reports (add a comment to do so).

Change History

comment:1 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

  • Keywords I18N NLS translation added
  • Version VirtualBox 1.6.4 deleted
  • Component changed from other to GUI

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

This ticket introduces a switch of VirtualBox GUI from the Qt Toolkit verison 3 to version 4. In particular, this means the following:

  1. The primary translation target is the Qt4 GUI. The current location of NLS files for it is  http://virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk/src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox4/nls/. Note that one day the VirtualBox4 directory will be renamed to just VirtualBox after the current VirtualBox directory is renamed to VirtualBox3. The Qt3 GUI will go away from binary distributions in VirtualBox and stop receive any official support from Sun so the only reason why Qt3 NLS may change in the future and therefore need an update from the translator is either a bugfix of the 1.6 product branch or a contribution to the Qt3 GUI from the community.
  1. The tool that needs to be used to work with .ts files from the VirtualBox4 directory is Qt Linguist 4 (you can download the Open Source version of Qt 4 for your platform here:  http://trolltech.com/downloads/opensource).

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

2.0 NLS Ready to Translate

The new 2.0 release is expected next week. Please note again that VirtualBox 2.0 and following versions will ship the VirtualBox GUI that uses Qt version 4 and therefore you need to update the Qt4 NLS files, not the Qt4 ones. See comment:1 and also make sure you have read the  Translating document once more since there are some important updates.

All VirtualBox NLS files (VirtualBox_*.ts) were copied from the Qt3 directory and then syncronized with sources. It means that all existing (and not changed) NLS string should remain intact in the .ts files for Qt4.

However, the situation with Qt4 NLS files (qt_*.ts) is little bit different. We cannot synchronize them with Qt4 sources at the present time and therefore we took the existing files from the official Qt release version 4.3.3 and put them over the ones in the VirtualBox4/nls subdirectory in SVN. The following files were put over:

  • qt_ar.ts
  • qt_de.ts
  • qt_es.ts
  • qt_fr.ts
  • qt_iw.ts
  • qt_ja_jp.ts (renamed to qt_ja.ts)
  • qt_pl.ts
  • qt_pt.ts
  • qt_ru.ts
  • qt_sk.ts
  • qt_sv.ts
  • qt_zh_CN.ts

Maintainers of the respective translations should check these files and make corrections if necessary.

The contents of the rest of qt_*.ts files were replaced with the contents of the new qt_xx_YY.ts file that represents an untranslated NLS template for Qt4. Maintainers of these translations will have to translate them from scratch (probably using translated strings from Qt3 version of the .ts file opened in a separate window of Qt Linguist).

I was sorry because I only translated VirtualBox.ts file, not also qt.ts. Maybe in the future, we can use qt.ts from Qt, not our own?

There is no qt_ro.ts in the official Qt 4.x distribution. If you have one (e.g. contributed to to Trolltech by someone else), you can use it for VirtualBox too provided that the license of that translation is compatible with our (MIT) license.

Already translated the missing strings for VirtualBox for pt-BR. I should be sending an update later tomorrow, after I finish the QT4 strings and proofread them.

BTW, I found the following typos in the en-US strings:

in VBoxGLSettingsUpdate: "When checked, the application will periodically connect to the VirtualBox website and check whether a new VirtualBox verison is available."

in VBoxVMSettingsUSB: "When checked, enables the virtual USB EHCI controller of this machine. The USB ECHI controller provides USB 2.0 support."

now that's a sexy controller... :)

Here's the full translation for both VirtualBox and QT4. I proofread it, and everything appears to be in order.

comment:18 Changed 11 years ago by docca

poetzsch, could you place me (or all the translators here, for that matter) in the CC field? I'd like to receive email notifications whenever the ticket is updated, if possible.

comment:19 Changed 11 years ago by frank

docca, I would not recommend that because the cc: field of a ticket is public visible. There is an internal cc: list. The easiest way to get on this list is to post a comment here. If someone is familiar with trac, ideas on how to do this better are welcome.

comment:20 Changed 11 years ago by docca

I know it's off-topic, but perhaps  this Trac plugin could be of use? The group notify feature seems to be just what is needed.

comment:21 Changed 11 years ago by Tenzer

Just an update, as you haven't heard anything from me since I said I would do the Danish translation. It has taken more time than expected, and the Qt3->Qt4 transition also made it take a bit longer, but I'm currently around 70% done with the VirtualBox.ts file. I will post it when I'm done with it.

Replying to dmik:

Maintainers of these translations will have to translate them from scratch (probably using translated strings from Qt3 version of the .ts file opened in a separate window of Qt Linguist).

Qt4 Linguist have a little trick: you can open the Qt3 ts file by Phrases -&gt; Open auxillary source, and select a Qt3 .ts file. It doesn't modifies it, just open, and shows a matching translation (if found) between the Source and the Translation part of the editor stuff. I used it well with VirtualBox3-VirtualBox4 migration.

Thank you for the hint.

comment:28 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

Updates to the Swedish, Spanish, Hungarian translations are merged to SVN.

yeager, please use the Qt4 Linguist application! By using some raw XML editor to update the .ts file you a) break the standard indentation every time (which appears as too many meaningless diffs the maintainer needs to review when checking your update) and b) risk to break the translation by accidentally breaking the markup (HTML entities, extra spaces, line feeds and so on)!

ozzii, your Serbian updates don't merge clearly with the current version of src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox4/nls/VirtualBox_sr.ts from the SVN: please perform a merge on your side, resolve any conflicts and reattach here.

jose1711, the same applies to your Slovak translation. Looks like you took VirtualBox_sk.ts from the VirtualBox directory instead of VirtualBox4. Please take the right file and re-attach.

Ok, great. But please use the current version of VirtualBox_sv.ts from SVN each time you update it and attach here (or use the SVN client to update this file for you as described in the second comment of this ticket) -- there were a few fixes missing in your last attached .ts (don't worry about attaching it again -- just take the current SVN version and continue on it).

I said "there were missing fixes" meaning that I already fixed that when merging it to SVN so it contains the correct version now which you should take for further translation. Two empty country strings are indeed do not need to be translated in your case.

epimitheas, thank you for the start! However, I don't see anything translated in VirtualBox_el.ts, it even lacks your name. I've added your name and the language name myself but keep in mind that the translation won't be added to the distribution until the amount of translated items reaches the 50% limit (note that you must take both .ts files from SVN and continue your work on them, not on your local copies!). Also, you didn't provide us your email which is a requirement too.

jose1711. I will repeat. The files you attached are kind of wrong: they are from the unsupported Qt3 version of the VirtualBox frontend (i.e. from the src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox/nls directory). You need to take them from the src/VBox/Frontends/'''VirtualBox4'''/nls directory (simply download using these links:  http://www.virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk/src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox4/nls/VirtualBox_sk.ts and  http://www.virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk/src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox4/nls/qt_sk.ts if you are unable to work with SVN)! I've merged them to the Qt3 directory though since they belong there. But keep in mind that these updates will not appear in the VirtualBox4 directory, you will have to put them to Qt4 .ts files manually.

Pau, I've merged your update however could you please comment on what are the other two archives attached by rbuj after you?

rbuj, thank you but first please tell what did you attach and why and who you are :) The Catalan translation is maintained by Pau Iranzo now so you should coordinate your efforts with him. I left your files untouched so far.

Updates to the Greek, Slovak (Qt3), Catalan (but not ca_2 and ca_ES), Romanian, Czech and Chinese are merged to SVN.

jean-jacques, please note that your latest update has not been accepted because it doesn't merge cleanly with either of the VirtualBox versions (Qt3 and Qt4). Looks like a Qt3 translation file with some partial updates from the Qt4 sources.

Mr. Victor Wang, I found some flaws in your translation.

  1. Some words and phrases are not translated. Do you think they don't need to be translated or the translation is just incomplete. If it's the latter case, the progress should not be 100%. If the former, well, it's really a problem.
  2. Some translations are not appropriate. They are either lengthy or confusing.

Wang, I want to make further disscusion with you. So you can contact me(my email address is <removed>) or give me your email address if you are glad to.

comment:46 follow-up: ↓ 48 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

Thanks for the good question, ozzii. Here is the important update.

We discontinued the support of the Qt3 frontend a while back and now we removed the source code of this frontend located at src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox from the repository. After that, the src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox4 directory was renamed to just src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox.

In other words, now the directory src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox contains the sources of the active Qt4 frontend. The NLS files you need to maintain are located in the  http://www.virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk/src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox/nls directory.

Current status for Polish translation is that only about 100 strings out of 2033 are missing. In 24 hours it will be finished and (hopefully) proofread by me and another person.

The old translation was badly outdated and poorly translated. Basically I'm doing it almost from scratch, using 40-50% of the original material. Be patient, it's going to be worth it.

Correction for wrong "(IO APIC)" hint on Advanced VM Settings page. I must have used incorrect suggestion in Qt Creator, the one regarding ACPI instead.

comment:70 Changed 11 years ago by cromo

I am the former polish translator for virtualbox. I am sorry for not updating the translation for virtualbox since the time being, but I was (and still am) busy with my master's thesis research. I came here to say thank you to my successor, as I noticed that starting with version 2.2 polish translation has different maintainer. I am however disappointed (to say the least) by what SirYes says about the quality of my work and the fact he rewrote 40/50% of it. I've spent countless hours on this translation, doing my best to make particularly those very long sentences clear and understandable by anyone (not just tech-savy people) while trying to figure out correct nomenclature and to stick to it over different parts of program. By the diff SirYes supplied I can clearly see that the very most of the changes are _only_ cosmetic, so PLEASE, SirYes, don't make fuss and publicly insult my work by saying it was "poorly translated" (as I am sure it was not ) and that you rewrote ~half of it (as you clearly did not). You may have altered that many lines of the translation but did not rewrote that much - and it makes a huge difference.

It was simple enough to just send me an private email asking if you can handle the translation on yourself, without making up the reasons for overtaking the translation on a public forum.

Anyways, I can see the changes you've done are for better so I wish good luck with translation.

comment:71 Changed 11 years ago by SirYes

I apologize, your analysis is right. I *felt* like rewriting the translation, because of the need to touch so many strings in a coherent way. And even though the changes may seem minor, they were numerous. I've spent a good portion of my evenings for last three weeks to get the thing updated on time. Some new phrases were so complicated that I needed to contact other Polish translators from Aviary.pl team to agree on the wording (for example: "appliance").

I apologize once more for not contacting you privately, but I was unable to dig out your address like I typically do (.po files encourage pasting e-mails in the header, for example), and I asked here first for permission on 2009-03-13. I hoped that after commenting here all translators would get an e-mail to their mailboxes. Since there was silence I assumed both former translators became MIA and started to work on my own. If you feel insulted then I publicly say I am terribly sorry for the whole situation - and I truly am.

I'm not trying to overtake anything, I know how [we] translators feel pride of the work. Please contact me: <e-mail removed> for further communication, so this channel would stay clear.

Hi

I don't know why, but the Catalan translation is actually the previous version of the last one that I attached here one month ago. Did something go wrong?. Thanks!. (On the other hand, I had no time to translate the 2.2 version :(...)

comment:73 Changed 11 years ago by cromo

SirYes - OK, it's fine, I just didn't want the developers of Virtualbox to have feeling that I my translation was poor, that's all. Your changes really seem better to me and make more sense and more professional (however I really did my best on translation). Never mind, and good luck! :)

comment:74 Changed 11 years ago by Pau

Hi again

I would like to ask the language administrator if it is possible to update the language files when a minor VirtualBox update is published (for example on 2.2.1). Some languages like Spanish, Portuguese, Basque or Catalan have not been updated on the last release and it is so "ugly" to see English sentences on the menus or explanations when using VirtualBox on our language.

Of course it was our fault to not have translated the files on time, but I think it's not very difficult to add them on minor updates.

Thanks! (I've just attached the Catalan translation)

Merged Catalan, Swedish, Italian & Polish translations. Thank you very much.

re cromo/SirYes: please see comment:59, where I asked for acknowledgment. Maybe I should have wait I little bit longer. Sorry for the confusion.

re Pau: It seems I simply forgot to include your changes. Sorry. Your updated translations will be included in the next minor release. About the updates of minor releases in general: We have a separate branch for the minor releases beside the trunk. So its not that easy to keep the translations you do for the trunk in sync with that branch. But I will try to backport as much of your changes as possible.

re fei: Sorry, I can't include your changes because the former translators doesn't acknowledge this step & you haven't agreed to publish your translation under the terms of the  MIT. Please see the  Wiki for the steps necessary to get the translation included. bluebat would it be ok for you when fei updates the zh_TW files also?

So, the questions:

  • I need to send email to info WORM virtualbox.org even if I was an active translator?
  • A guy joined to me and helps in translation. Need he send a comment with MIT license, or enough if I'm a leader and I submit the translated stuffs?

I'll upload hungarian files tomorrow...

@poetzsch:

Since it's been over a month now and I haven't seen a reply from Alexander I went ahead and translated most of the file already, especially with the upcomming 3.0 release in mind. I still need to complete a few things and then test the file on my local installation. when that's done, I think, mid-nextweek, I'll attach the file to my next message if that's ok?

The complete string sounds: "A required codec is missing. You need to install the following codec(s) to play this content: %0" So, you must put %0 to the correct place.

comment:104 Changed 10 years ago by docca

@Wiseacre: "bucket" refers to a virtual storage unit on a cloud-based bulk data storage service, like  Amazon S3. Translating it directly may sound a little weird, specially if in your country people already use the term in English for lack of a better translation. Perhaps you should leave it as "bucket" as well?
