State of the translation
#1
Hey all.

Browsing through the recent threads, it seems making things easier for translators is not going anywhere. And the state of the translation issues in the wiki ain't looking good either (a translation tool done in dotnet needing wine on on linux? c'mon.)

Especially with the different addons, there is a need for a centralized database from which common strings can be automatically fetched so tons of duplicate work and using different words in different addons for same things can be avoided.

XBMC project active members, devs, users, all.

Please.

Me, I'm not up for this task but I realise it is a _lot_ of work to set up this thing. I'm just fiddling with a single addon + few translations, being a native speaker of one satanic backwards language, Finnish.

We have "core" (xbmc itself) + tons of different utilities (addons), although we're of course not that big as the Gnome and KDE projects, but we still have the same issues those guys have, and we could also benefit a lot from taking a look how they do things.

To get things started, though, here's a tool written in python in a couple of minutes that can help checking the state of the translations of a single addon:

https://github.com/viljoviitanen/Simple-...ation-Tool

The tool parses all the files (assumed to be strings.xml files) given as arguments, loops through the files and stores all ids it finds, then loops through the ids and checks if all files have all the ids and complains if an id is missing.

Ideas for the tool are welcome, ideas with code are even more welcome! Smile
