Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68315
Applications menu categories untranslated
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 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.

Those entries are translated in upstream GNOME, it looks like the translation is
just not included in the packages.
You need to translate them in the "redhat-menus" module on Elvis.
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?
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).
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.

Patch for POTFILES.in
teg is there a way to give translators access to modify POTFILES.in?
Christian is there an automatic way to generate it?
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.
I've added it to the translate module... there is no pot file there, though.
"intltool-update --pot" will generate a pot file.
Marking the head of the priority queue with priority high
as far as I know things are good (redhat-menus on status page, everything in
