Dear translators,

I have run some automated translation checks. I have fixed most of the issues myself, but some issues need review by the translation teams, if you have the time.

You can download an archive of the remainining issues at:

http://www.foramnagaidhlig.net/internal/widelands/po_validation.zip

  • Unzip and search your file system for your language code.
  • You will get a list of po files that you can open in a text editor or in Virtaal - look for (pofilter) comments in them.
  • You can fix the issues directly in the files and then upload the fixed files to Transifex.

We also have an issue with the definition of plural forms for Russian and Turkish. I am not sure what the correct rule would be and how Transifex handles those, so I have left them alone for now.

Our list of unsolved bugs is shrinking, so we should have a release candidate for Build 19 in a few weeks.

Thanks for translating,

GunChleoc

A new round of translation checks can now be found at https://github.com/widelands/widelands-translation-reports/tree/master/translators

What is the best way to download the files for a single language?

There are some, where the differences are intentional, e.g. "!" at the end of imperative sentences, and capitalisation of production programs (they go to the start of the sentence for hu). Is it possible to mark them as such?

The translation reports are generated using third-party tools so we have limited control; unfortunately quite a lot of the supposed errors are actually intentional. I usually ignore all the startpunc, endpunc, and startcaps checks as those are nearly all false-positives for my language.

To download the checks, either clone the whole repo, or install a browser extension that allows downloading a single directory from a repo (I can recommend Refined GitHub) – annoyingly GitHub does not support this natively.

Hmm, looks like the check tool for printf doesn't like strings with real '%'…

Looking at the description of the Refined GitHub browser extension, they say they use https://download-directory.github.io/ for this. So the URL for a language is:

https://download-directory.github.io/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fwidelands%2Fwidelands-translation-reports%2Ftree%2Fmaster%2Ftranslators%2F<lang>
