Description Raphaël Hertzog 2013-11-29 15:01:12 UTC
Created attachment 830694 [details]
Patch fixing newline handling in translated strings

I have a translated string like that:

#. Tag: para
#, no-c-format
msgid "With [...] Thank you!"
msgstr ""
"Nous avons reçu le soutien de 650 personnes pendant la campagne de\n"
"financement initiale, et de plusieurs centaines d'autres pendant la\n"
"campagne de libération.  C'est grâce à vous que ce projet a pu voir le\n"
"jour.  Merci à tous !"

Obviously the translators (or its software) word-wrapped the translation string and added newlines where there were none in the original string. Still this should be perfectly OK because he knows that we're writing XML and that newlines should be treated just like spaces.

Unfortunately, that's not the case, the "\n" end up in the generated documents.

I believe that the attached patch fixes this problem with no bad side-effects.
