I18N progress 2.0

Reported by: dmik Owned by: dmik
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.

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).

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).

There are some last minute updates to the translation files. Please checkout the latest revision using svn & continue the translation work on this new files.

Updates to the Romanian translation are merged to SVN. alexef, thank you, and as far as I see, you (correctly) translated the Qt4 (aka VirtualBox 2.0) version, so I don't see the reason for 'sorry'.

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

2.0 NLS last minute update

There are some more minor corrections in the .ts files, please feel free to update.

Currently Korean translation is being updated, and current status is about 90%. Do you know the exact release of VirtualBox 2.0?

comment:9 in reply to: ↑ 8 ; follow-up: ↓ 10 Changed 11 years ago by peremen

  • exact release date

comment:10 in reply to: ↑ 9 Changed 11 years ago by dmik

Replying to peremen:

  • exact release date

The exact release date is today, the build is closed already. However, there will be 2.0.2 very soon, so your contribution is still highly appreciated.

I think it is too late, but here is Korean translation file.

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... :)

docca: Thanks for the typo hint. This is corrected internally & will appear in the public svn soon.
