Description Christian Rose 2002-07-08 22:19:05 EDT
Tested with Limbo and sv_SE.UTF-8 as locale.

The entries in the gnome "Applications" menu are not translated into Swedish,
although their contents should be translated in gnome 2.0.

Comment 2 Richard Hult 2002-07-09 05:42:25 EDT
Those entries are translated in upstream GNOME, it looks like the translation is
just not included in the packages.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-10 18:18:06 EDT
You need to translate them in the "redhat-menus" module on Elvis.
Comment 4 Christian Rose 2002-07-10 19:28:43 EDT
Oh. But only the message "Applications" is marked for translation in the
redhat-menus module. It seems the other desktop and directory files are not
hooked up in POTFILES.in (at least that's what "intltool-update -M" shows).

Also, the redhat.menus module is not in "translate" on i18n.redhat.com, nor is
it on the http://i18n.redhat.com/i18n/ stats page. Teg?
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-10 20:39:01 EDT
If you know how to fix potfiles.in I'd appreciate it.

It isn't on the i18n page probably because I was sort of waiting until the menus
were a bit more final. I expect to change those strings a lot still (not the
directory names probably, but adding/removing other stuff).
Comment 6 Christian Rose 2002-07-10 21:19:17 EDT
I'm attaching a patch for the POTFILES.in file.

Personally I'd prefer if it was added sooner than later to the status pages even
though it's not finished yet. Then it'll give translators a head start.

Comment 8 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-10 22:26:53 EDT
teg is there a way to give translators access to modify POTFILES.in?

Christian is there an automatic way to generate it?
Comment 9 Christian Rose 2002-07-11 06:20:34 EDT
I don't think so. "intltool-update -M" will find all missing files but it
doesn't know if the files are included in the tarball, so manual inspection of
Makefiles is necessary.
Comment 10 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-11 11:00:24 EDT
I've added it to the translate module... there is no pot file there, though.
Comment 11 Christian Rose 2002-07-11 12:17:03 EDT
"intltool-update --pot" will generate a pot file.

as far as I know things are good (redhat-menus on status page, everything in
