Hi there! I would like to contribute to Pardus development by translating it in my language (Italian); i emailed the italian translation project boss but he didn't answer me yet. Can anyone help me to understand what i'm supposed to do? I red all the information Pardus' site could give me, but there was no clue O_o

New Translator's Mini-Guide

File extension : .po

Where to find the .po files to be translated : search for po subdirectories on the Pardus SVN server

Tool: Lokalize (which is in kdesdk package)

Actual translation work :

1. Download a .po file (the more recent) from SVN ;
2. Open it with Lokalize ;
3. Translate successively all the untranslated strings ;
4. Save your .po file ;
5. Submit it for SVN commit on the Pardus translator's global mailing-list

Hi guys, thank you so much for your answers! I downloaded kbabel (which i had already downloaded when i wrote this post ^^) and i translated / completed a translation: now, how do i submit the .po file? Does kbabel do everything automatically? Or do i have to email it to everyone using the email address to the whole italian translation project? I'm sorry if i'm so full of questions, it's just that i don't want to cause a mess doing the wrong thing and ruining other people's work. For example, i found a function in kbabel, "send to (an archive)", thus i think that it could send the .po file directly to where it is needed, but am i right in my guess?

Submit your .po file for SVN commit on the Pardus translator's global mailing-list means that you first have to subscribe to the mailing-list, and then send an email to pardus-translators@pardus.org.tr with your .po file attached to it.

You can subscribe to the italian mailing-list too, but, judging from its low activity, I doubt you would get a quick response from it.

Ehm... i emailed it, but i guess there's some code of conduct to follow, since it arrived me a newsletter for pardus translator and i noticed messages from translator have to be written in a certain way. I wish there would be some how-toes to explain the translation process, not only a forum and a "learn as you do" way :p I hope not to harm the project too much with my inexperience :p Bye!

I don't know anything about this newsletter. Can you post its content here, I'm curious.

I hope not to harm the project too much with my inexperience :p Bye!

Don't worry about that. If there is some errors in your translated files, you will be notified and guided in order to correct them.

Thanks Pepello for contributing to the translation effort !

There's no ru.po file in trunk_yali4_po. Not really surprising Smiley , but where can I get something to translate from? Something like en.po?

You start with the general http://svn.pardus.org.tr/viewcvs/trunk/yali4/po/yali4.pot
or preferred (since Pardus is still KDE 3.5): http://svn.pardus.org.tr/viewcvs/trunk/yali/po/yali.pot

POT file, then edit that one and then you save it as ru.po, and you are the first to have created ru.po which may then be uploaded

so when you want to add a new translation  language you should start with the yali.pot and/or yali4.pot files and save them as ru.po

Personally I have played around with PO only once by creating the dutch translation for kdenlive video editor, this page on their site was quite helpful, if I remember correctly I even used lokalize the KDE4 application.

http://www.kdenlive.org/contribution-manual/how-translate-kdenlive

This will help you with PO

Thanks for that additional remark, saves out a waste of time for Llama

I REALLY like the idea of Pardus getting available in RUSSIAN language as well, wow
