Description Mike McCune 2005-01-04 22:37:04 UTC
We need a tool to create a dummy version of the l10n files in a test
language like pig latin or something.

This will allow us to 

Another possibility is to have a config item that puts the
LocalizationService into 'test' mode where it places a distinguishable
token around all the strings it knows how to translate, something like:

"The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog"

would be returned as:

"%%%The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog%%%" 

so a visual check would show all the strings that weren't within the
%%% as being untranslated (from DB, not wrapped in a call to the
service, etc...).

I meant to say above:  

This will allow us to visually inspect the website to search for
missing translations.

Comment 2 Mike McCune 2005-01-19 23:23:59 UTC
I added a bit of code to the LocalizationService that wraps the
messages in a marker if a specific debug flag is set in the config file:

public String getMessage(String messageId, Locale locale, Object[] args) {

        // If we have put the Service into debug mode we
        // will wrap all the messages in a marker.
        if (Boolean.valueOf(
                booleanValue()) {
            StringBuffer debug = new StringBuffer();
            String marker =
            mess = debug.toString();
        return mess;

I turned it on and immediately noticed that "Logged In :" text on the
main page wasn't wrapped in the marker.  It provides an easy way to
check on a page (or the entire site in general) what has been
localized and what hasn't.

I'm assuming its OK for me to checkin this modification to the
rhn_web.conf file into CVS?  Should I put a better guard around that
Boolean.valueOf() call in case that config value doesn't exist?
