I had a look at the internationalization today. I'd be very happy to translate into danish, just to contribute a little bit .

In stead of CVS I think it might be equally easy just to download the program directly from the cvsviewer on sourceforge.net to a local file and the correct it.. (for those of us not quite familiar with CVS, and not even having a CVS-client).

But I noticed that a number of expressions in the messages ('waypoint', 'UTC', 'home directory' etc.) would not make sense trying to translate and then I stopped. I also thought that if the messages in the pot-file were to be translated, then what about 'tips.html'? That file would require translation (and some programming) also?

Any comments?

I have translated waypoint on my German .po file, although the english waypoint would be universally understood as well. It is up to you to decide how much/what you feel needs translating.

Helpfiles to be done in due course / as and when wiki is available.

oem...

I agree with idpnd.

I have tagged almost all of the screen-visible messages in opencpn for potential translation. If the en_US words look right to you in your native language, then you may skip the translation of that message. Opencpn will use the en_US message by default if no translation is supplied, on a per-message basis.

I will be adding more messages for the next Beta, and probably removing some which are clearly non-sense, like "". It is an interative process, but any work you do now will not be lost, as it will be merged for later improvement.

Getting the opencpn.pot from sourceforge cvs browser, or even cut-and-paste, is just fine. Whatever works best for you is OK. There is only one current .pot file at any one time.

Looking ahead, the next Beta will have idpnd's German translation available for general use. opencpn_de_DE.po will be in the CVS source tree, with some new untranslated strings added. idpnd's job is to download the new .po file, complete the new translations, test if desired, and send the result to me to be rolled forward. Same for other translations. I am updating the Makefiles so that this happens semi-automatically.

I think this process will work, understanding that the current Beta at any point will usually contain untranslated strings waiting to be updated for the next Beta, and so one level out of date, so to speak.

Question for all: Has anyone successfully created a .po/.mo for Windows platform, copied the .mo to opencpn/lang and gotten it to work? I've played around with it, but cannot get my VirtualBox XP setup to recognize locales other than my default. This stuff has a high fussy factor.....

Dave

Using = utiliser I think Try any of the online dictionaries. The context should be helpful as well.

OK, step by step is fine

I tried it, and everything is ok with poedit after creating {opencpn_home}/lang and then copying 'opencpn_da_DK.mo' to that folder. I doesn't take long and it's quite fun.

See attached, - a wonderful mix between danish and english

Recommendation: Test the translation in the program before submitting, - it's quite a surprise sometimes to see where the actual translation comes up. I'll mail my version when I'm through with this 'quality assurance'..

Nice.. Note there will be more work required in due course as some strings are still missing (such as the status bar etc.)

OK. No problem (file in \lang shouldn't be default.mo but opencpn_it_IT.mo)

I'll send you the Italian translation soon.

I'd just propose you not to translate the log messages.

Ciao, Marco.

"I'd just propose you not to translate the log messages."

That's a very good point for troubleshooting purposes, can be rather annoying.. Perhaps they should be excluded!
