Add a new language pack to Launchpad
If you are in charge of the official language packs, you may receive a language pack tar ball from a translator. You may be asked to add the tar ball into the Mahara translation project on Launchpad. This tar ball contains the directory named like 'xy.utf8' which has translated strings for a specific Mahara branch.
Here are the instructions
Checkout the Mahara code and Mahara lang script
You need to checkout the Mahara branch (1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, and master) which is compatible to the lang pack. Please see the set up a development environment page for more details.
cd ~ mkdir code cd code git clone git://gitorious.org/mahara/mahara.git cd ~/code/mahara git checkout -t origin/<Mahara-branch_STABLE>
Make sure you have a Mahara data-root directory created with suitable access permission.
You also need to checkout the Mahara lang scripts in the mahara-scripts repository
cd ~/code git clone git://gitorious.org/mahara/mahara-scripts.git cd ~/code/mahara-scripts git checkout master
Extract the language pack tar ball
You need to extract the language pack tar ball into a directory
mkdir -p ~/translation/langpacks tar xvf xy-<mahara-branch>.tar.gz -C ~/translation/langpacks
where xy-<mahara-branch>.tar.gz is the tar ball.
Generate a .po file
You need to run the php script php-po.php
mkdir -p ~/translation/po cd ~/code /usr/bin/php mahara-scripts/mahara-langpacks/php-po.php mahara/htdocs ~/translation/langpacks ~/translation/po/xy.po
Update the Translator's info in the .po file
"Last-Translator: Son Nguyen <[email protected]>\n" "Language-Team: Launchpad Vietnamese Translators\n"
If you don't include an email address on this line, you (as the uploader) will be credited as the translator after it's uploaded to Launchpad.
Get the last updated .pot template from launchpad
You need one mahara.pot for each branch. You can find them on these bzr branches:
