Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53019
Question about converting line feeds is (probably) incorrectly formatted
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:48 EDT
In the message catalog for printconf there is a message
#. ../gui/printconf-gui.glade:1570 ../gui/printconf-gui.glade:3545
" => \r\n"
" => \r\n"
(I'm using the Swedish translation for illustration, but that's not
important.) This first makes sense when looking at it in the message
catalog file. But these strings are interpreted as in C code, so the \n
and \r will be translated to the corresponding control characters. That's
probably not intended. There is another message in the same file:
msgid "Translate \\n->\\r\\n"
msgstr "Vversdtt \\n->\\r\\n"
I believe the first message should have looked this way too.
Disclaimer: I can't install and verify this on any machine right now. But
since this might be urgent, with the lead time necessary for translations,
I didn't want to delay reporting it until I could verify it. I apologise
if my assumptions are wrong and this report is incorrect.
Yes, that does look wrong.
All occurrances of this are now fixed. Thanks.
