Translation for developers

19 bytes added, 8 years ago
svn -> git
Beside the pure [[translation]] part of the work, the '''Kiwix source code needs to be synchronized with Translatewiki'''.
This synchronisation with Translatewiki needs three type types of operationsoperation:* ''Add a string'' to Kiwix and Translatewiki, ie. introducing a dynamic string which will be replaced by the corresponding translationat the runtime.
* ''Update the Kiwix strings'' with the translations coming from Translatewiki.
* ''Add a new Translatewiki full translated language to Kiwix''.
* Translatewiki translations are imported separately in the Kiwix code repository on time a week and we always need to synchronize thus files with Kiwix code in both direction (KW->TW and TW -> KW).
'''WARNING: Before any modification of Kiwix source code, update your local code repository repositories with "git pull origin master"in each one of them.'''
== Checkout the code and start Kiwix ==
<source lang="bash">
svn co pull origin master
<source lang="bash">
svn git status kiwix/chrome/locale
cd /full/path/to/the/kiwix/maintenance_tools/translatewiki
./ --path=/full/path/to/the/kiwix/code/directory --allLanguages=kw
svn git commit /full/path/to/the/kiwix/code/directory/kiwix/chrome/localegit push origin master
The full path should be the moulinkiwix directory, not the kiwix directory in it.
Add the new language directory and commit like following:
<source lang="bash">
svn git add kiwix/chrome/locale/language_iso_codesvn git commit CHANGELOG kiwix/chrome/chrome.manifest kiwix/chrome/ kiwix/chrome/locale/ kiwix/chrome/content/main/js/gui.jsgit push origin master
