Translators

Postby cody » Sat May 19, 2007 1:38 pm

Things have begun to stabilize meaning that the language files aren't going to be drastically changing anymore. Because of this I am currently looking for help to translate the editor into a few more languages, it is currently available in English, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. Any other languages would be a welcome addition.


UPDATE The translation project has moved online to launchpad.net feel free to help and add to the translation project at https://translations.launchpad.net/editra/trunk/+pots/editra

Hi sir,

I'm new at Python and also not a programmer... not yet at least... :D

I'm fluent English, Spanish and Basque speaker, so I decided to translate Editra to Basque (my mother tongue).

I just finished and wondered how could I just make my new Editra run in Basque in order to make sure translation was correct.

Would you kindly point me out how to ? Guess I need to download it from the source and built ... meantime, I will check further the forums.

Thanks for attention, and ty for Editra.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to prepare the translation.

All you will need to do is download the .mo file from the launch pad website then place it in you installation directory. There is no need to rebuild editra to make use of the new translation file.

I am not sure what operating system your using so will give the best general information I can here.

1) Find where the locale folder is in your Editra installation is
2) In the locale folder create a folder using the correct cannonical name for Basque which will be eu_ES
3) now inside that folder locale/eu_ES create another folder called LC_MESSAGES
4) Inside the LC_MESSAGES folder put the .mo file for your translation
5) Make sure editra is not running
6) Start editra, go to the preferences dialog and select Basque from the language selection
7) Restart editra and you should be good to go.

I will integrate it into the main line for the next release.

Thanks again,

Cody

Hey there,

It works ! Cheers mate ! :)

I work on win7 and also linux mint.

I only had to rename the .mo file downloaded as "eu_LC_MESSAGES_Editra.mo" to simply "Editra.mo".

Now I can fully test the Basque language. Cheers again ! In one week time it should be all finished.

Also, I will continue learning python, I'm really happy with it.

Thank YOU very much for Editra. Hope I will help further.
