Description Nils Philippsen 2007-04-26 03:55:18 EDT
I've just found out that the "Pacific/Easter" timezone (which is the Easter
Island) is translated wrongly in at least German but I suppose in many more
languages (at least I guess that much from looking at the po files, I don't
speak that many), e.g.:

de: "Pazifisch/Easter" should be "Pazifik/Osterinsel" (all "Pacific/..." should
be "Pazifik/...", not "Pazifisch/...")
es: "Pacífico/Oriental" looks like a translation of "East" to me, but not Easter
Island ;-)

In many languages I looked at, the "Easter" part isn't translated at all.

NB: if it helps you, I can easily mark the "Pacific/Easter" strings fuzzy in all
languages so your tools know that there's an issue with it. Just tell me if you
want that.
Comment 3 Timo Trinks 2007-04-26 19:53:59 EDT
Hi Nils,

I fixed that for .de, however, for all other languages it might be a good idea
to mark the strings fuzzy which will notify the community or inhouse translators
through http://i18n.redhat.com/cgi-bin/i18n-status (the package timezones will
be marked with fuzzies then) about the changes... Depending on whether there's
an active community for a language or not a response might vary though.

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2007-04-27 05:08:33 EDT
I've just found an additional gotcha: It's the "Easter Island" (singular,
inhabited, belongs to Chile, the one with the rock statues), not the "Easter
Islands" (plural, uninhabited, belong to West Australia). I've fixed it
timezones/de.po, but I thought I'd write it here so translators dealing with
this in the future have the information.

I'll tag the string as fuzzy in the other languages and will do a final rebuild
mid next week, could you please nudge at least the in-house translators, so that
this can be fixed for as many languages as possible? Thanks.
Comment 5 Nils Philippsen 2007-04-27 05:22:48 EDT
I've marked the string as fuzzy now in all languages expect German, could you
please take care of notifying the other translators (in-house and outside) about
the issue? I want to avoid that people just unfuzzy it because they're not aware
of the problem. Thanks.
Comment 6 Nils Philippsen 2007-04-27 12:20:08 EDT
As I predicted nobody bothers to read the changelog ;-), meaning that the French
and (non-Brazil) Portuguese files just got unfuzzied.

Guys, "Pacific/Easter" means the Easter Island (singular) which according to the
unerring Wikipedia is:

in French: "Île de Pâques"
in Portuguese: "Ilha de Páscoa"

Would someone please spread the word? Thanks.

Meanwhile I'll just fuzzy them again and put a comment inside fr.po and pt.po so
at least their translators will notice ;-).
Comment 7 Alain Portal 2007-05-02 07:24:55 EDT
Sorry Nils ;-)
French is fix now.
Comment 8 Nils Philippsen 2007-05-02 09:40:13 EDT
Reminds me that I should build this thing now.
Comment 9 Alain Portal 2007-05-02 09:54:03 EDT
I should want to say "was fixed 3 days ago"
