Description Runa Bhattacharjee 2009-09-08 07:12:08 UTC
Description of problem:

Quite a few of the strings in the imsettings.po file available for translation for Fedora 12 contain typographical errors, and may need a rewrite to either correct their grammatical syntax or fully understand the reference to their context.

The .pot file is here:


direct link:


The strings are mentioned below along with their source reference:

#: ../applet/imsettings-applet.schemas.in.h:3
msgid ""
"If false, all of informations will not delivered through libnotify, except "
"error and warning messages."


#: ../applet/imsettings-applet.schemas.in.h:7
msgid ""
"When this option is enabled, all of key events will be sent to Input Method "
"synchronously. This might affects a performance."

#: ../applet/main.c:714
msgid ""
"When this option is enabled, all of key events will be sent to Input Method "
"synchronously. this might affects a performance."

#: ../applet/main.c:990
#, c-format
msgid "Please %s%s"

#: ../backends/xim/proxy.c:2969
msgid "A XIM server name would connects to"

#: ../src/factory.c:1295
msgid "A directory where puts the system wide xinputrc on."

#: ../src/factory.c:1301
msgid "A directory where puts the IM configurations on."

#: ../src/factory.c:1408
msgid "A directory where puts the system-wide xinputrc puts on (debugging only)"

#: ../utils/imsettings-info.c:61 ../utils/imsettings-list.c:58
#: ../utils/imsettings-restart.c:84 ../utils/imsettings-start.c:85
#: ../utils/imsettings-stop.c:83
#, c-format
msgid ""
"Mismatch the version of imsettings.\n"
"Run imsettings-reload -f may resolves this issue but be aware that will ends "
"up to restart Input Method too\n"

Additional Info:

1. There are quite a few strings, where Capitalization was missed after a full-stop. 

2. Correcting this may break string freeze for Fedora - 12.

Thanks for reporting. I'll have a look at this after Fedora 12 then.

updated imsettings.pot

Sorry for misinterpretation. after the talk with Runa on IRC, I've updated strings. please have a look and comment on that. Thanks.

Comment 3 Runa Bhattacharjee 2009-09-09 04:11:34 UTC
Hello, I am not sure what kind of information has been requested from me with the NEEDINFO. Thanks.

Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2009-09-09 04:19:38 UTC
just asking if the updated pot file is sufficient to fix the issue.

String improvements based on discussion with Tagoh-san.

I think Akira will commit these soon.
