Translation process

  • Write an issue in the website project http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/enter_bug.cgi?component=extensions
  • Title: Localisation for extension site: <LANGUAGE>
  • Assign it to tbo@openoffice.org
  • Provide information about your language: Native language name, language name in english, some kind of 2 letter code for the language
  • TBO will then take some default strings, already existing for the language and put it into pootle http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Pootle_User_Guide or provide an .pot file for translation. Instructions will be written into the issue, issue will get assigned to submitter
  • Submitter takes care about the translation of the strings
  • If translation is finished, assign the issue to TBO again. He will take care to enable the language on the website.

Translation rules

  • Special care has to be taken during translation by words starting with !, $, %, @ they have to appear as they are in the translation, too.
  • HTML commands in < and > has also to show up in teh translated string in the same way.
