Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-01-31 04:12:03 EST
Strings from the 'driver options' tab come from foomatic.  Unfortunately, there
has been no upstream effort to get them translated.

The mechanism is there, but you have to edit XML files. :-/
Comment 2 Paul Gampe 2003-02-02 18:08:22 EST
Tim, we have tools to convert to/from po/xml which might help here.  
Comment 3 Michael Hideo 2003-12-09 21:34:56 EST
Hi Tim,

Okay for me to create the PO files from your XML and send them to
translation?

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2003-12-10 04:15:15 EST
Of course.
Comment 5 Leon Ho 2004-06-02 21:25:55 EDT
Bernd will be writing a xml to po converter for foomatic
Comment 6 Nakai 2004-06-05 07:38:59 EDT
Use intltool
Comment 7 Lawrence Lim 2004-09-06 02:11:41 EDT
Any update on this bug? I had a look at the recent
system-config-printer in the ko_KR locale. And "Double sized printing"
label etc are still untranslated.

Any thoughts?

Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2004-09-06 04:51:32 EDT
Could someone explain to me how intltool can help?  All of the
translatable text is inside <en> tags, if that's useful.
Comment 10 Localisation Team 2004-09-06 05:44:22 EDT
Tim,

You can also try xml2pot tool (/usr/bin/xml2pot), available in
kdesdk-3.1.3-1.1 rpm

Comment 11 Leon Ho 2004-09-06 22:23:56 EDT
Talked to Tagoh-san last night, we don't think following xml file
instruction part in /usr/share/doc/intltool-0.30/README will help too
much, basically because foomatic is using their only format
<lang></lang> in different xmls in /usr/share/foomatic/db/source/opt/*

When I looked into intltool-extract, intltool-merge and
intltool-update perl scripts, what it does to the .desktop file are
very simliar. One of the idea is to modify intltool's .desktop part to
accommodate foomatic's format.

Another idea is to modify foomatic directly to use gettext.

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to
make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.

Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Red Hat Linux 9 are no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc.
They are maintained by the Fedora Legacy project (http://www.fedoralegacy.org/)
for security updates only. If this is a security issue, please reassign to the
'Fedora Legacy' product in bugzilla. Please note that Legacy security update
support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006.

If this is not a security issue, please check if this issue is still present
in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change the product and version
to match, and check the box indicating that the requested information has been
provided.

If you are currently still running Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9, please note that
Fedora Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December
31st, 2006. You are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release
or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may
be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/.

Any bug still open against Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9 at the end of 2006 will be
closed 'CANTFIX'. Again, if this bug still exists in a current release, or is a
security issue, please change the product as necessary. We thank you for your
help, and apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point.
