CamelCase strings cause issues with the translators
Last modified: 2012-06-20 09:06:59 EDT
the use of CamelCase and ALLCAPS cuases issues where translators do not translte the string, but QE opens up bugs against them. This bug Moves CamelCase to Camel Case and ALLCAPS to ALL-CAPS to try and resolve the issue.
fixed in master at 148e9bf60bcde2508064ede626e4df4b98e20381
[root@jsefler-r63-server ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager
To verify this bug, I picked one of the translated rhsm.mo files and ran the following command looking at each of the msgid keys.
# msgunfmt /usr/share/locale/as/LC_MESSAGES/rhsm.mo | more
Within the output from that command I looked for cases of CamelCase and ALLCAPS.
VERIFIED: I found no cases of two words combined in a format of ALLCAPS.
[root@jsefler-r63-server ~]# msgunfmt /usr/share/locale/as/LC_MESSAGES/rhsm.mo | grep msgid | egrep [A-Z][a-z]+[A-Z]
msgid "Invalid Product List ScrolledWindow"
msgid "Unable to locate SystemId file. Is this system registered?"
FAILED/QA: "ScrolledWindow" and "SystemId" are the only CamelCase values found in the msgid keys. However...
Running the following command you will find that some translators choose to translate "ScrolledWindow" and some translators choose not to translate. (the same is true for "SystemId").
[root@jsefler-r63-server ~]# for f in `rpm -ql subscription-manager | grep rhsm.mo`; do echo $f; msgunfmt $f | grep ScrolledWindow; done;
In my opinion these are not bugs. Instead they are concious decisions by the translators who choose what is appropriate to be translated in their language.
Here are other questionable keys that I found. However they too are translated in some languages and not in other:
