Description of problem:
During the graphical install, Anaconda prompts for what additional language support the user wants to install on the system. If the user has selected to use Swedish for the install dialog, most of these language options are translated to Swedish but not all. The following languages are still listed in English:
I hope that this can serve as a useful heads-up, perhaps we have missed the translation to other languages too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5 beta 2, CD image 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from RHEL 5 Client beta 2 CD 1, press enter to use the graphical installer.
2. Select Swedish (or possibly another language) to be used for the installation dialog.
3. Go through the dialog windows until you are prompted for additional language support.
Most languages are listed in Swedish but some with their English names. The list is alphabetcally sorted, but the different languages makes it difficult to find what you are looking for.
All languages listed in Swedish, producing a list where every item is alphabetcally sorted.
Swedish is a community translated language and there have been some changes
since we branched for rhel5. The community translators don't tend to end up
translating on rhel branches.
And these strings are from comps-po.
Oh, I was afraid that this was the case...
1. Will the updated translations be branched again for a RHEL 5 update, like 5.1.0?
2. How/where can I help the community translators? A pointer to the correct web
page/mailing list would be most welcome.
I don't think branching is an issue here since the comps-po files don't get
branched. Looking at the cvs log of comps-po/sv.po, there haven't been any
translations since Oct 4. I don't know how to ask the community to focus on any
particular piece needing translation.
$ msgfmt -v --statistics -o /dev/null sv.po
260 translated messages.
