Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 524526
The strings in UI and in PO file are inconsistent
Last modified: 2009-09-29 11:29:21 EDT
Translation completed 100%. POT/POs may need to be updated to reflect latest strings.
This is feedback from Fedora 12 software translation review.
- The strings in UI and the strings in PO file are inconsistent.
Observed by, ko-KR, de-DE, fr-FR, ja-JP, it-IT, ru-RU, zh-TW
- Some strings are appeared in English even PO file fully translated.
Observed by, es-ES, ru-RU and zh-TW
Can you clarify what strings and what ui you are talking about here ?
I am confused, since the desktop-backgrounds package does not contain any translations that I can see...
For example, those below can not be found in desktop-backgrounds POT/POs (https://translate.fedoraproject.org/projects/desktop-backgrounds/HEAD/).
Go to 'system -> settings -> appearence';
On tab "background" the sub-header "_Desktop Background" is in English.
On the same tab there is a drop-down list "C_olors" (in English). The choices are all in English, including "Solid color", Horizontal gradient", "Vertical gradient", etc.
Those strings are part of the control-center package.
'control-center' package can not be found in Transifex. Where can translators find translatable PO file?
Reassigned to 'control-center' package. This package has not been registered with Transifex. To enable translators send contributions to this project through Transifex, it is needed to have a special VCS account for Transifex.
Please refer here; http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10NFAQ#How_do_I_add_a_module_to_Transifex.3F_.28.23add-transifex.29
control-center is part of gnome, the upstream name is gnome-control-center. So, for translations, go to gnome.org.
gnome-control-center for Gnome 2.28 (currently frozen) status says: ja, de, fr, it, zh-TW and es are all 100% completion. ko-KR 97% completion and ru-RU 98% completion. Thus most of strings should appear in translated languages at release time. Please make sure Gnome 2.28 to be included. http://l10n.gnome.org/module/gnome-control-center/
However, two strings can not be found in gnome-control-center package PO file. Those are untranslatable.
Go to system -> settings -> appearence -> Background tab
'_Desktop Background' at top left hand side
'Make Default' at bottom right hand side
I can't see the "_Desktop Background" string here. Can you show a screenshot ?
"Make Default" is a string that is added in a patch of ours, but thankfully,
gnome-power-manager does have translations for this, so I went ahead and stole those translations with a little hack.
Please check control-center-2.28.0-11.fc12 to verify that "Make Default" is now sufficiently translated.

The screen-shot is attached.
Which version is that ? I don't see that string on my system with control-center-2.28.0-11

Upgraded to the version specified to check.
Yeah! confirmed all strings in 'Background' tab nicely appears in translated language (Japanese), including 'Make Default'!!. There is no more '_Desktop Background' in latest version.
Looking great, thanks a lot!
