Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 836946
Zanata should allow new Indic languages
Last modified: 2012-09-12 23:12:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Some of the iok translation files didn't reach server as its found that they are totally new languages. Please add the following languages.
doi Dogri डोगरी
hne Chhattisgarhi छत्तीसगढ़ी
mni Manipuri মনিপুরি
sat Santali संताली
sd Sindhi सिन्धी
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current zanata server
Steps to Reproduce:
What is the zanata version or server that we are looking at here? Thanks.
zanata python client version: 1.3.5, zanata server API version: 1.5.0
We will need the plural rules for these languages. We get our plural information here: http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/l10n/pluralforms
Do you know where we can get Gettext plural rules for these languages?
doi Dogri nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1)
hne Chhattisgarhi nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1)
mni Manipuri nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1)
sat Santali nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1)
sd Sindhi nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1)
and for one more language
brx Bodo nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1)
Thanks, we'll try to get the data in soon. Would you please pass on the plural information to http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/l10n/pluralforms ?
Test with Zanata version 1.7-SNAPSHOT (20120720-0026):
Languages does not show in pulldown after typing the first 1 characters:
doi, hne, mni, sat, sd.
Moreover, for hne, Language Name is still the "hne".
Not all locales show in the drop-down list on the Language Management page, but it might make a good RFE.
We get our language names from ICU4J, which apparently gets locale data from CLDR. They mustn't have hne yet. However, it should still work in Zanata for translation, joining the language team etc, it just won't have a name until it is added to ICU.
I've added the plural information to http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/l10n/pluralforms .
Parag, do you think we can close this bug at the present state:
i.e. User can push pull, and use Web UI to translate, but no typing suggestion for admin to add the language.
Or you perfer we close the bug after everything is ready?
Thanks Sean for committing this new language data.
dchen, you can close this bug. If above mentioned things are working.
VERIFIED with Zanata version 1.7.0-alpha-2-SNAPSHOT (20120720-1208)
I put in the RFE as bug 841735.
