no german translation for the first dialog:
"No root configuration file found! ..."
only empty dialog appears
Should be fixed in 0.98a9-16.
No, don't convert the translation file without a solution. this way may be
solved for UTF-8 locale. but then this problem appears on native locale.
don't forget that xcdroast uses GTK+1.2, and important thing is it doesn't use
gettext. it means the translation isn't converted to a locale encoding
So I should use iconv(3) to convert from 'UTF-8' to whatever 'locale charmap'
says? Or something else?
harald: Could you explain some more? Doesn't that function only affect the
"important thing is it doesn't use gettext" .. oops didn't read that carefully..
you have to convert from 'po-file' (or whatever) encoding to the actual font

Well, as I said on IRC, you convert the translation file from the *appropriate*
encoding to UTF-8, then applies the above patch.
this patch will converts the current codeset from UTF-8.
I rewrite the Japanese entries in the translation file manually and as far as
I've tested this patch, it works for me.
Great, thanks! Now to start figuring out some encodings..
I think that xcdroast-0.98a9-17 fixes this properly now.
Installed on 0812 this version shows german correctly for me
ja_JP displays correctly
ko_KR displays correctly but translations incomplete
zh_TW displays correctly but translations incomplete
zh_CN displays correctly but translations incomplete
I'm leaving this open awaiting complete translations.
I don't think it's ever had complete translations before. It doesn't use
gettext, but some home-made translation system. It doesn't have _anything_
translated into, for example, Norwegian (AFAICT).
I think that the original complaint is fixed. Feel free to open a separate
bug report requesting completed translations (and we'll have to figure out
some process for it).
Fix confirmed with xcdroast-0.98a9-18.
