Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189760
Shortcut keys in Bengali are not properly translated.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
Shortcut keys in Bengali Language (bn_IN) are not properly translated. The
Shortcut keys should be written in English rather than Bengali.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Observe the Menu and Sub Menu item shortcut keys.
The shortcut keys are translated in Bengali.
The shortcut keys should be written in English.
I don't do the actual Bengali translations myself, can you describe the bug in a
way which I can log a bug against the OpenOffice.org Bengali translators ?
Is the problem that the short-cut translations are simply wrong ? All of them ?,
or just some of them ? I think it is normal for the shortcuts to be described in
the localized translations rather than english, e.g "stgt + L" in German for
english "ctrl + L" so I'd expect the shortcut keys to be described in Bengali

This is how it looks for me. Is this the way it looks for you ?

RE: Comment #2
I notice 2 bugs in the screenshot.
1. I guess is the objective of this current bug, to have the shortcut in english
rather than in native indic. For CJKI, due to the number of characters set, and
different keyboard layout, language maintainers are encourage to leave the en
shortcut keys unchanged. (see attachment from Comment #3)
2. Rendering of indic characters, especially composed chars. Are the "()" fixed
width? From the screenshot, it is sitting in the middle of the indic char. On
the sub-menu, where there is a Ctrl-N shortcut, the forth shortcut for oodraw,
lies a composed char, the closing bracket ')' is in the middle of the composed char.
1. OK, I understand now. Makes sense, I see that bn is the only Indic
translation which has done this ill-advised translation of the shortcuts.
http://bn.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=64726 Perhaps I can fix some of
the major toplevel ones myself, but upstream will have to do the full review/fix
2. I'll look into that, you can work around by disabling
"tools->openoffice.org->view->Use system font for user interface"
I've now a patch for the bad placement of glyphs in the menus, which looks good.
Oky doky, lets try out my mini-"untranslation" of the bn UI shortcuts
Oh my, is there anything else your patch can fixed. ;-)
Runa, further to our conversation earlier on the shortcut keys with GTK, please
take note that of the shortcut in OOo as well.
>> Shortcut keys in Bengali Language (bn_IN) are not properly translated.
FYI, actually the translations were not done for bn_IN. It was done for bn by
Ankur group, which works for bn_BD and bn_IN.
"ooo64726.sdf" in the openoffice.org spec is my simple translation sdf for these
shortcuts. Build is available as -12 in rawhide or -8 in fc5-testing-updates.

Excellent! in Openoffice.org-writer-2.0.2-5.12.3 version, the most of the
Shortcut keys are showing in English. Caolan, Thanks for ur great response.
Adding Jamil to the cc-list of this bug. We shall take the shortcut issue
forward within the bn.openoffice.org group.
This *fedora* bug was fixed some years ago, and is closed. You need to get
bn.openoffice.org to be aware of these upstream bugs logged against them...
To get the fedora fixes merged into the upstream version. I can even take care
of checking in fixes upstream if someone from the bn.openoffice.org group agrees
that the solutions attached to those issues are the right ones.
