1 Notes on the Free Translation Project

***************************************
3 1 hiro

Free software is going international!  The Free Translation Project is
5
a way to get maintainers of free software, translators, and users all
6
together, so that free software will gradually become able to speak many
7
languages.  A few packages already provide translations for their
8
messages.
9
10
   If you found this `ABOUT-NLS' file inside a distribution, you may
11
assume that the distributed package does use GNU `gettext' internally,
12
itself available at your nearest GNU archive site.  But you do _not_
13
need to install GNU `gettext' prior to configuring, installing or using
14
this package with messages translated.
15
16
   Installers will find here some useful hints.  These notes also
17
explain how users should proceed for getting the programs to use the
18
available translations.  They tell how people wanting to contribute and
19
work on translations can contact the appropriate team.
20
21
   When reporting bugs in the `intl/' directory or bugs which may be
22
related to internationalization, you should tell about the version of
23
`gettext' which is used.  The information can be found in the
24
`intl/VERSION' file, in internationalized packages.

1.1 Quick configuration advice
27
==============================
28 1 hiro
29
If you want to exploit the full power of internationalization, you
30
should configure it using
31
32
     ./configure --with-included-gettext
33
34
to force usage of internationalizing routines provided within this
35
package, despite the existence of internationalizing capabilities in the
36
operating system where this package is being installed.  So far, only
37
the `gettext' implementation in the GNU C library version 2 provides as
38
many features (such as locale alias, message inheritance, automatic
39
charset conversion or plural form handling) as the implementation here.
40
It is also not possible to offer this additional functionality on top
41
of a `catgets' implementation.  Future versions of GNU `gettext' will
42
very likely convey even more functionality.  So it might be a good idea
43
to change to GNU `gettext' as soon as possible.
44
45
   So you need _not_ provide this option if you are using GNU libc 2 or
46
you have installed a recent copy of the GNU gettext package with the
47
included `libintl'.

1.2 INSTALL Matters
50
===================
51 1 hiro
52
Some packages are "localizable" when properly installed; the programs
53
they contain can be made to speak your own native language.  Most such
54
packages use GNU `gettext'.  Other packages have their own ways to
55
internationalization, predating GNU `gettext'.
56
57
   By default, this package will be installed to allow translation of
58
messages.  It will automatically detect whether the system already
59
provides the GNU `gettext' functions.  If not, the included GNU
60
`gettext' library will be used.  This library is wholly contained
61
within this package, usually in the `intl/' subdirectory, so prior
62
installation of the GNU `gettext' package is _not_ required.
63
Installers may use special options at configuration time for changing
64
the default behaviour.  The commands:
65
66
     ./configure --with-included-gettext
67
     ./configure --disable-nls
68
69
will, respectively, bypass any pre-existing `gettext' to use the
70
internationalizing routines provided within this package, or else,
71
_totally_ disable translation of messages.
72
73
   When you already have GNU `gettext' installed on your system and run
74
configure without an option for your new package, `configure' will
75
probably detect the previously built and installed `libintl.a' file and
76
will decide to use this.  This might not be desirable.  You should use
77
the more recent version of the GNU `gettext' library.  I.e. if the file
78
`intl/VERSION' shows that the library which comes with this package is
79
more recent, you should use
80
81
     ./configure --with-included-gettext
82
83
to prevent auto-detection.
84
85
   The configuration process will not test for the `catgets' function
86
and therefore it will not be used.  The reason is that even an
87
emulation of `gettext' on top of `catgets' could not provide all the
88
extensions of the GNU `gettext' library.
89
90
   Internationalized packages usually have many `po/LL.po' files, where
91
LL gives an ISO 639 two-letter code identifying the language.  Unless
92
translations have been forbidden at `configure' time by using the
93
`--disable-nls' switch, all available translations are installed
94
together with the package.  However, the environment variable `LINGUAS'
95
may be set, prior to configuration, to limit the installed set.
96
`LINGUAS' should then contain a space separated list of two-letter
97
codes, stating which languages are allowed.

1.3 Using This Package
100
======================
101 1 hiro
102
As a user, if your language has been installed for this package, you
103
only have to set the `LANG' environment variable to the appropriate
104 3132 hiro
`LL_CC' combination.  If you happen to have the `LC_ALL' or some other
105
`LC_xxx' environment variables set, you should unset them before
106
setting `LANG', otherwise the setting of `LANG' will not have the
107
desired effect.  Here `LL' is an ISO 639 two-letter language code, and
108
`CC' is an ISO 3166 two-letter country code.  For example, let's
109 1 hiro
suppose that you speak German and live in Germany.  At the shell
110
prompt, merely execute `setenv LANG de_DE' (in `csh'),
111
`export LANG; LANG=de_DE' (in `sh') or `export LANG=de_DE' (in `bash').
112
This can be done from your `.login' or `.profile' file, once and for
113
all.
114
115
   You might think that the country code specification is redundant.
116
But in fact, some languages have dialects in different countries.  For
117
example, `de_AT' is used for Austria, and `pt_BR' for Brazil.  The
118
country code serves to distinguish the dialects.
119
120
   The locale naming convention of `LL_CC', with `LL' denoting the
121
language and `CC' denoting the country, is the one use on systems based
122
on GNU libc.  On other systems, some variations of this scheme are
123
used, such as `LL' or `LL_CC.ENCODING'.  You can get the list of
124 3132 hiro
locales supported by your system for your language by running the
125
command `locale -a | grep '^LL''.
126 1 hiro
127
   Not all programs have translations for all languages.  By default, an
128
English message is shown in place of a nonexistent translation.  If you
129
understand other languages, you can set up a priority list of languages.
130
This is done through a different environment variable, called
131
`LANGUAGE'.  GNU `gettext' gives preference to `LANGUAGE' over `LANG'
132
for the purpose of message handling, but you still need to have `LANG'
133
set to the primary language; this is required by other parts of the
134
system libraries.  For example, some Swedish users who would rather
135
read translations in German than English for when Swedish is not
136
available, set `LANGUAGE' to `sv:de' while leaving `LANG' to `sv_SE'.
137
138
   Special advice for Norwegian users: The language code for Norwegian
139
bokma*l changed from `no' to `nb' recently (in 2003).  During the
140
transition period, while some message catalogs for this language are
141
installed under `nb' and some older ones under `no', it's recommended
142
for Norwegian users to set `LANGUAGE' to `nb:no' so that both newer and
143
older translations are used.
144
145
   In the `LANGUAGE' environment variable, but not in the `LANG'
146
environment variable, `LL_CC' combinations can be abbreviated as `LL'
147
to denote the language's main dialect.  For example, `de' is equivalent
148
to `de_DE' (German as spoken in Germany), and `pt' to `pt_PT'
149
(Portuguese as spoken in Portugal) in this context.

1.4 Translating Teams
152
=====================
153 1 hiro
154
For the Free Translation Project to be a success, we need interested
155
people who like their own language and write it well, and who are also
156
able to synergize with other translators speaking the same language.
157
Each translation team has its own mailing list.  The up-to-date list of
158
teams can be found at the Free Translation Project's homepage,
159 3132 hiro
`http://translationproject.org/', in the "Teams" area.
160 1 hiro
161
   If you'd like to volunteer to _work_ at translating messages, you
162
should become a member of the translating team for your own language.
163
The subscribing address is _not_ the same as the list itself, it has
164
`-request' appended.  For example, speakers of Swedish can send a
165
message to `sv-request@li.org', having this message body:
166
167
     subscribe
168
169
   Keep in mind that team members are expected to participate
170
_actively_ in translations, or at solving translational difficulties,
171
rather than merely lurking around.  If your team does not exist yet and
172
you want to start one, or if you are unsure about what to do or how to
173 3132 hiro
get started, please write to `coordinator@translationproject.org' to
174
reach the coordinator for all translator teams.
175 1 hiro
176
   The English team is special.  It works at improving and uniformizing
177 3132 hiro
the terminology in use.  Proven linguistic skills are praised more than
178
programming skills, here.

1.5 Available Packages
181
======================

183
Languages are not equally supported in all packages.  The following
184 3132 hiro
matrix shows the current state of internationalization, as of November
185
2007.  The matrix shows, in regard of each package, for which languages
186 1 hiro
PO files have been submitted to translation coordination, with a
187
translation percentage of at least 50%.

   Some counters in the preceding matrix are higher than the number of
1035
visible blocks let us expect.  This is because a few extra PO files are
1036
used for implementing regional variants of languages, or language
1037
dialects.
1038
1039
   For a PO file in the matrix above to be effective, the package to
1040
which it applies should also have been internationalized and
1041
distributed as such by its maintainer.  There might be an observable
1042
lag between the mere existence a PO file and its wide availability in a
1043
distribution.

1.6 Using `gettext' in new packages
1051
===================================
1052 1 hiro
1053
If you are writing a freely available program and want to
1054
internationalize it you are welcome to use GNU `gettext' in your
1055
package.  Of course you have to respect the GNU Library General Public
1056
License which covers the use of the GNU `gettext' library.  This means
1057
in particular that even non-free programs can use `libintl' as a shared
1058
library, whereas only free software can use `libintl' as a static
1059
library or use modified versions of `libintl'.
1060
1061
   Once the sources are changed appropriately and the setup can handle
1062
the use of `gettext' the only thing missing are the translations.  The
1063
Free Translation Project is also available for packages which are not
1064
developed inside the GNU project.  Therefore the information given above
1065
applies also for every other Free Software Project.  Contact
1066 3132 hiro
`coordinator@translationproject.org' to make the `.pot' files available
1067
to the translation teams.
