Procedure for translating TuxGuitar


Tips for translators


Second-language feature

If your English isn't that good, and you wish to translate from another language, or if you want to use a second language as a reference while translating, our Pootle server has the second-language feature enabled. You can view the German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Continental Portuguese and Russian strings while you translate from English.

These five languages are available on the server in read-only format. Some of them have been partially translated by Decathlon translators, but we're currently sorting out the identities of their translators.

To activate a second source language in Pootle, go to your profile page and select the second language under Alternative Source Language.

Sources for research and stuff

Technical stuff (not really for translators)

To convert properties to PO:
python prop2po tuxguitar_new.po

To merge translations back:
python po2prop -t tuxguitar_new.po

The default method of escaping is Unicode entities. Some of the source texts are not in UTF8 but they may be delivered in UTF8.
