Please see TracL10N for now. I need to substantially clean that up though, but it should help you a bit already.

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by markus.staab@…

hmm… translation has nothing to do with L10N… it has to be I18N .. ?

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by markus.staab@…

i need to know, where to put the translated *.po files and how configure trac to use them.. im not interessted in the system how the i18n is implemented.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by anonymous

anybody?

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by cboos

  • Keywords documentation i18n added
  • Milestone set to 0.12
  • Owner changed from jonas to jruigrok

jruigrok:

cboos:

Btw, is there a dev page describing how to use this i18n branch (generate the catalogs and such)?

I thought there was, but now I am in doubt. Need to check it and if it does not exist I should create it.

Anyway:

get Babel all installed

then from the trac-i18n branch:

python setup.py —help-commands

extract_messages is for creating the .pot

compile_catalog is for creating .mo files from .po files

after that build and install to test .mo files

I hope this gets you a bit further ;-)

  • Status changed from new to assigned

I'll make sure to devote some time to this soon.

  • Cc trac@… added

ccing me

comment:8 Changed 6 years ago by jruigrok

On the TracL10N site I put on some quick install hints.

comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by Markus.Staab

its very confusing that the term L10N is used, even if we talk about I18N …

comment:10 Changed 6 years ago by jruigrok

  • Component changed from general to i18n

comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by jruigrok

A quick note: L10N is actually quite correct for the translations, since it is the localization of the software. I18N would be less appropriate since that's the framework on the software side that makes L10N an option.

comment:12 Changed 6 years ago by Markus.Staab

I don't think so… if you talk about I18N you talk about translations and if you talk about L10N you talk about contents which you serve for a special region

In what time sandbox/i18n/trac/locale/messages.pot have regenerated

what i meen?

i've download the latest Babel-1.0dev_r358 and in Trac said

./setup.py extract_messages

my workcopy of i18n At revision 6706.

then i said

svn status
?      trac/locale/es_AR/LC_MESSAGES/messages.mo
M      trac/locale/messages.pot

i dont now, may be it not need, but i will atached the patch for trac/locale/messages.pot

comment:14 Changed 6 years ago by anonymous

not in messages.pot

#: web/auth.py:89 #, python-format msgid "logged in %s" msgstr ""

maybe create new ticket for this type of messages?

comment:15 Changed 6 years ago by cboos

  • Milestone changed from 0.13 to 0.12

comment:16 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

This desperately needs some docs. I've installed 0.12 and the "language" panel on the preferences shows up, but changing it does nothing. I have no idea what I'm missing or where to start.

comment:17 Changed 5 years ago by cboos

  • Owner changed from jruigrok to cboos
  • Priority changed from normal to highest
  • Status changed from assigned to new
  • Version set to 0.12dev

#7843 closed as duplicate - asking for some more precisions about the installation of .mo files.

Replying to markus.staab@…:

We are working on that. Hope we will have it in production until the end of year.

Please do not close this ticket. It's highly important to me to have a resolution as soon as possible.

comment:22 follow-up: Changed 4 years ago by cboos

  • Summary changed from docs about translation to doc about translating plugins

Focus the ticket on expanding TracL10N for adding translation support to plugins.

The TracMercurial plugin has translations, so it's already possible to do it by following that example, but a few more guidelines wouldn't hurt…

Oops, there was already a ticket dedicated to this (#6387), so this ticket is about the general documentation for translation, which is there in TracL10N and is enough. Improvements can be contributed directly by editing that wiki page.
