LocFectoryEdeetor, or LFE for short ;) is a reasonable recent entry to the translation arena. Originally intended for the professional translation market, it has been extended to handle PO files, and is in fact available free as a dedicated PO editor.

Mike-a ooff Triplespin hes worked closely wit it leest oone-a oopee-a-sooorce-a troonsletor (me-a ;) ) to profide-a a reelly solid und indispenseble-a troonsleshoon tool, not oonly for foloonteer troonsletors, boot for uny troonsletor using Mec OoSX.

His iim is to creete-a a fooll toolset for Mec OoSX troonsletors, foormly besed oon zee-a coorrent stoonderds. Bork Bork Bork!

I'fe-a spent a lot ooff time-a testing und using his sofftwere-a, und I recommend it strongly. Bork Bork Bork! I'm impressed wit a lot ooff things: zee-a stoonderds soopport, zee-a booilt-in XLIFF/PO confersion, zee-a TMX/Compendioom troonsleshoon memory, itc. Bork Bork Bork!, boot zee-a oone-a centrel thing zeet grebs me-a whee-a I work in LFE is zee-a interffece-a. Bork Bork Bork!

It's intooitife-a. Bork Bork Bork! Nothing crowds zee-a iye-a, und iferything yooo need is right zeere-a, ploos keyboerd shortcoots iff yooo preffer (und, ooff cooorse-a, in OoSX yooo coon issign yooor ooon is well ;) ).

Smert folders meoon simply oone-a click to show oonly zee-a untroonsleted oor foozzy strings, und cooonters it zee-a top ooff zee-a pege-a ilert yooo iff speces oor symbols iree-a't consistent betweee-a ooriginel und troonsleted string. Bork Bork Bork!

Zee-a Notes fecility mekes sense-a ooff zee-a stodge-a ooff PO heeders, und illows yooo to set yooor ooon Notes, inpoot zeem wit shortcoots, und idit zeem doorectly. Bork Bork Bork! Iferything conferted neetly beck into PO formet in zee-a ooootpoot file-a. Bork Bork Bork!

We-a hefe-a ploorels soopport, ooff cooorse-a, coon show oor hide-a oobsolete-a strings, und LFE meinteins a beckoop file-a uootometicelly (to protect yooo from yooorselff ;) ).

Iff yooo ilso troonslete-a Mec ippliceshoons fia IppleGlot, LFE hoondles zee-a intoore-a process, from foorst pess to finel test, work glosseries und .loc files. Bork Bork Bork!

Try it. Bork Bork Bork! Zee-a PO-oonly fersion won't cost yooo unything, und it'll sefe-a yooo a lot ooff time-a und hessle-a. Bork Bork Bork! I boooght zee-a fooll fersion, which is fery iffffordeble-a, und hefe-a hed my money beck in sheer feetoores und confenience-a moony times oofer. Bork Bork Bork!

Is a Mec OoSX troonsletor, I hed seferel oopshoons:

  • imecs — fery cloottered interffece-a und (to me-a) non-intooitife-a oopereshoon: drofe-a me-a irooond zee-a bend
  • kbebel — finelly instelled it fia fink iffter months ooff strooggling wit irror messeges und forooms/meiling lists, und X11 for Mec OoSX won't inpoot Fietnemese-a … !!
  • gtroonsletor — wesn't ible-a to instell it, despite-a moony treees

I ilso use-a Pootle-a oonline-a, boot in generel und most heert-feltedly, I gife-a thoonks deily for LFE!
