1 zoff99 2 Notes on the Free Translation Project
2     *************************************
3    
4     Free software is going international! The Free Translation Project is
5     a way to get maintainers of free software, translators, and users all
6     together, so that will gradually become able to speak many languages.
7     A few packages already provide translations for their messages.
8    
9     If you found this `ABOUT-NLS' file inside a distribution, you may
10     assume that the distributed package does use GNU `gettext' internally,
11     itself available at your nearest GNU archive site. But you do _not_
12     need to install GNU `gettext' prior to configuring, installing or using
13     this package with messages translated.
14    
15     Installers will find here some useful hints. These notes also
16     explain how users should proceed for getting the programs to use the
17     available translations. They tell how people wanting to contribute and
18     work at translations should contact the appropriate team.
19    
20     When reporting bugs in the `intl/' directory or bugs which may be
21     related to internationalization, you should tell about the version of
22     `gettext' which is used. The information can be found in the
23     `intl/VERSION' file, in internationalized packages.
24    
25     Quick configuration advice
26     ==========================
27    
28     If you want to exploit the full power of internationalization, you
29     should configure it using
30    
31     ./configure --with-included-gettext
32    
33     to force usage of internationalizing routines provided within this
34     package, despite the existence of internationalizing capabilities in the
35     operating system where this package is being installed. So far, only
36     the `gettext' implementation in the GNU C library version 2 provides as
37     many features (such as locale alias, message inheritance, automatic
38     charset conversion or plural form handling) as the implementation here.
39     It is also not possible to offer this additional functionality on top
40     of a `catgets' implementation. Future versions of GNU `gettext' will
41     very likely convey even more functionality. So it might be a good idea
42     to change to GNU `gettext' as soon as possible.
43    
44     So you need _not_ provide this option if you are using GNU libc 2 or
45     you have installed a recent copy of the GNU gettext package with the
46     included `libintl'.
47    
48     INSTALL Matters
49     ===============
50    
51     Some packages are "localizable" when properly installed; the programs
52     they contain can be made to speak your own native language. Most such
53     packages use GNU `gettext'. Other packages have their own ways to
54     internationalization, predating GNU `gettext'.
55    
56     By default, this package will be installed to allow translation of
57     messages. It will automatically detect whether the system already
58     provides the GNU `gettext' functions. If not, the GNU `gettext' own
59     library will be used. This library is wholly contained within this
60     package, usually in the `intl/' subdirectory, so prior installation of
61     the GNU `gettext' package is _not_ required. Installers may use
62     special options at configuration time for changing the default
63     behaviour. The commands:
64    
65     ./configure --with-included-gettext
66     ./configure --disable-nls
67    
68     will respectively bypass any pre-existing `gettext' to use the
69     internationalizing routines provided within this package, or else,
70     _totally_ disable translation of messages.
71    
72     When you already have GNU `gettext' installed on your system and run
73     configure without an option for your new package, `configure' will
74     probably detect the previously built and installed `libintl.a' file and
75     will decide to use this. This might be not what is desirable. You
76     should use the more recent version of the GNU `gettext' library. I.e.
77     if the file `intl/VERSION' shows that the library which comes with this
78     package is more recent, you should use
79    
80     ./configure --with-included-gettext
81    
82     to prevent auto-detection.
83    
84     The configuration process will not test for the `catgets' function
85     and therefore it will not be used. The reason is that even an
86     emulation of `gettext' on top of `catgets' could not provide all the
87     extensions of the GNU `gettext' library.
88    
89     Internationalized packages have usually many `po/LL.po' files, where
90     LL gives an ISO 639 two-letter code identifying the language. Unless
91     translations have been forbidden at `configure' time by using the
92     `--disable-nls' switch, all available translations are installed
93     together with the package. However, the environment variable `LINGUAS'
94     may be set, prior to configuration, to limit the installed set.
95     `LINGUAS' should then contain a space separated list of two-letter
96     codes, stating which languages are allowed.
97    
98     Using This Package
99     ==================
100    
101     As a user, if your language has been installed for this package, you
102     only have to set the `LANG' environment variable to the appropriate
103     `LL_CC' combination. Here `LL' is an ISO 639 two-letter language code,
104     and `CC' is an ISO 3166 two-letter country code. For example, let's
105     suppose that you speak German and live in Germany. At the shell
106     prompt, merely execute `setenv LANG de_DE' (in `csh'),
107     `export LANG; LANG=de_DE' (in `sh') or `export LANG=de_DE' (in `bash').
108     This can be done from your `.login' or `.profile' file, once and for
109     all.
110    
111     You might think that the country code specification is redundant.
112     But in fact, some languages have dialects in different countries. For
113     example, `de_AT' is used for Austria, and `pt_BR' for Brazil. The
114     country code serves to distinguish the dialects.
115    
116     The locale naming convention of `LL_CC', with `LL' denoting the
117     language and `CC' denoting the country, is the one use on systems based
118     on GNU libc. On other systems, some variations of this scheme are
119     used, such as `LL' or `LL_CC.ENCODING'. You can get the list of
120     locales supported by your system for your country by running the command
121     `locale -a | grep '^LL''.
122    
123     Not all programs have translations for all languages. By default, an
124     English message is shown in place of a nonexistent translation. If you
125     understand other languages, you can set up a priority list of languages.
126     This is done through a different environment variable, called
127     `LANGUAGE'. GNU `gettext' gives preference to `LANGUAGE' over `LANG'
128     for the purpose of message handling, but you still need to have `LANG'
129     set to the primary language; this is required by other parts of the
130     system libraries. For example, some Swedish users who would rather
131     read translations in German than English for when Swedish is not
132     available, set `LANGUAGE' to `sv:de' while leaving `LANG' to `sv_SE'.
133    
134     Special advice for Norwegian users: The language code for Norwegian
135     bokma*l changed from `no' to `nb' recently (in 2003). During the
136     transition period, while some message catalogs for this language are
137     installed under `nb' and some older ones under `no', it's recommended
138     for Norwegian users to set `LANGUAGE' to `nb:no' so that both newer and
139     older translations are used.
140    
141     In the `LANGUAGE' environment variable, but not in the `LANG'
142     environment variable, `LL_CC' combinations can be abbreviated as `LL'
143     to denote the language's main dialect. For example, `de' is equivalent
144     to `de_DE' (German as spoken in Germany), and `pt' to `pt_PT'
145     (Portuguese as spoken in Portugal) in this context.
146    
147     Translating Teams
148     =================
149    
150     For the Free Translation Project to be a success, we need interested
151     people who like their own language and write it well, and who are also
152     able to synergize with other translators speaking the same language.
153     Each translation team has its own mailing list. The up-to-date list of
154     teams can be found at the Free Translation Project's homepage,
155     `http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/', in the "National teams"
156     area.
157    
158     If you'd like to volunteer to _work_ at translating messages, you
159     should become a member of the translating team for your own language.
160     The subscribing address is _not_ the same as the list itself, it has
161     `-request' appended. For example, speakers of Swedish can send a
162     message to `sv-request@li.org', having this message body:
163    
164     subscribe
165    
166     Keep in mind that team members are expected to participate
167     _actively_ in translations, or at solving translational difficulties,
168     rather than merely lurking around. If your team does not exist yet and
169     you want to start one, or if you are unsure about what to do or how to
170     get started, please write to `translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to reach the
171     coordinator for all translator teams.
172    
173     The English team is special. It works at improving and uniformizing
174     the terminology in use. Proven linguistic skill are praised more than
175     programming skill, here.
176    
177     Available Packages
178     ==================
179    
180     Languages are not equally supported in all packages. The following
181     matrix shows the current state of internationalization, as of January
182     2004. The matrix shows, in regard of each package, for which languages
183     PO files have been submitted to translation coordination, with a
184     translation percentage of at least 50%.

734     Some counters in the preceding matrix are higher than the number of
735     visible blocks let us expect. This is because a few extra PO files are
736     used for implementing regional variants of languages, or language
737     dialects.
738    
739     For a PO file in the matrix above to be effective, the package to
740     which it applies should also have been internationalized and
741     distributed as such by its maintainer. There might be an observable
742     lag between the mere existence a PO file and its wide availability in a
743     distribution.
744    
745     If January 2004 seems to be old, you may fetch a more recent copy of
746     this `ABOUT-NLS' file on most GNU archive sites. The most up-to-date
747     matrix with full percentage details can be found at
748     `http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/matrix.html'.
749    
750     Using `gettext' in new packages
751     ===============================
752    
753     If you are writing a freely available program and want to
754     internationalize it you are welcome to use GNU `gettext' in your
755     package. Of course you have to respect the GNU Library General Public
756     License which covers the use of the GNU `gettext' library. This means
757     in particular that even non-free programs can use `libintl' as a shared
758     library, whereas only free software can use `libintl' as a static
759     library or use modified versions of `libintl'.
760    
761     Once the sources are changed appropriately and the setup can handle
762     the use of `gettext' the only thing missing are the translations. The
763     Free Translation Project is also available for packages which are not
764     developed inside the GNU project. Therefore the information given above
765     applies also for every other Free Software Project. Contact
766     `translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to make the `.pot' files available to
767     the translation teams.
