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 dmik) (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).

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).

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'.

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... :)

comment:15 Changed 11 years ago by poetzsch

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

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.

Hi again!!

Is is possible to have SVN privileges so that we don't have to live the hassle of zipping the files?

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.

epimitheas, thank you for your will to contribute the Greek translation, but you didn't provide all necessary details about you (full name, e-mail) and didn't license your translation so we cannot accept it right now. Please read  http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Translating#Submittingthetranslation and follow the instructions there (and read the rest of the document if you didn't do that yet).

dmik: I used Kbabel 1.11.4 earlier but have saved the files using Qt Linguist 4.4.2 now. Hope the files are better looking now. Regards, Daniel Nylander

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).

comment:32 follow-up: ↓ 33 Changed 11 years ago by yeager

dmik: I can't find any missing strings in the SVN copy of VirtualBox_sv.ts. There are two empty strings for country/language, which I guess I shouldn't translate

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.
