8 Notes on the Free Translation Project
9 *************************************
10
11 Free software is going international!  The Free Translation Project is
12 a way to get maintainers of free software, translators, and users all
13 together, so that will gradually become able to speak many languages.
14 A few packages already provide translations for their messages.
15
16    If you found this `ABOUT-NLS' file inside a distribution, you may
17 assume that the distributed package does use GNU `gettext' internally,
18 itself available at your nearest GNU archive site.  But you do _not_
19 need to install GNU `gettext' prior to configuring, installing or using
20 this package with messages translated.
21
22    Installers will find here some useful hints.  These notes also
23 explain how users should proceed for getting the programs to use the
24 available translations.  They tell how people wanting to contribute and
25 work at translations should contact the appropriate team.
26
27    When reporting bugs in the `intl/' directory or bugs which may be
28 related to internationalization, you should tell about the version of
29 `gettext' which is used.  The information can be found in the
30 `intl/VERSION' file, in internationalized packages.
31
32 Quick configuration advice
33 ==========================
34
35 If you want to exploit the full power of internationalization, you
36 should configure it using
37
38      ./configure --with-included-gettext
39
40 to force usage of internationalizing routines provided within this
41 package, despite the existence of internationalizing capabilities in the
42 operating system where this package is being installed.  So far, only
43 the `gettext' implementation in the GNU C library version 2 provides as
44 many features (such as locale alias, message inheritance, automatic
45 charset conversion or plural form handling) as the implementation here.
46 It is also not possible to offer this additional functionality on top
47 of a `catgets' implementation.  Future versions of GNU `gettext' will
48 very likely convey even more functionality.  So it might be a good idea
49 to change to GNU `gettext' as soon as possible.
50
51    So you need _not_ provide this option if you are using GNU libc 2 or
52 you have installed a recent copy of the GNU gettext package with the
53 included `libintl'.
54
55 INSTALL Matters
56 ===============
57
58 Some packages are "localizable" when properly installed; the programs
59 they contain can be made to speak your own native language.  Most such
60 packages use GNU `gettext'.  Other packages have their own ways to
61 internationalization, predating GNU `gettext'.
62
63    By default, this package will be installed to allow translation of
64 messages.  It will automatically detect whether the system already
65 provides the GNU `gettext' functions.  If not, the GNU `gettext' own
66 library will be used.  This library is wholly contained within this
67 package, usually in the `intl/' subdirectory, so prior installation of
68 the GNU `gettext' package is _not_ required.  Installers may use
69 special options at configuration time for changing the default
70 behaviour.  The commands:
71
72      ./configure --with-included-gettext
73      ./configure --disable-nls
74
75 will respectively bypass any pre-existing `gettext' to use the
76 internationalizing routines provided within this package, or else,
77 _totally_ disable translation of messages.
78
79    When you already have GNU `gettext' installed on your system and run
80 configure without an option for your new package, `configure' will
81 probably detect the previously built and installed `libintl.a' file and
82 will decide to use this.  This might be not what is desirable.  You
83 should use the more recent version of the GNU `gettext' library.  I.e.
84 if the file `intl/VERSION' shows that the library which comes with this
85 package is more recent, you should use
86
87      ./configure --with-included-gettext
88
89 to prevent auto-detection.
90
91    The configuration process will not test for the `catgets' function
92 and therefore it will not be used.  The reason is that even an
93 emulation of `gettext' on top of `catgets' could not provide all the
94 extensions of the GNU `gettext' library.
95
96    Internationalized packages have usually many `po/LL.po' files, where
97 LL gives an ISO 639 two-letter code identifying the language.  Unless
98 translations have been forbidden at `configure' time by using the
99 `--disable-nls' switch, all available translations are installed
100 together with the package.  However, the environment variable `LINGUAS'
101 may be set, prior to configuration, to limit the installed set.
102 `LINGUAS' should then contain a space separated list of two-letter
103 codes, stating which languages are allowed.
104
105 Using This Package
106 ==================
107
108 As a user, if your language has been installed for this package, you
109 only have to set the `LANG' environment variable to the appropriate
110 `LL_CC' combination.  Here `LL' is an ISO 639 two-letter language code,
111 and `CC' is an ISO 3166 two-letter country code.  For example, let's
112 suppose that you speak German and live in Germany.  At the shell
113 prompt, merely execute `setenv LANG de_DE' (in `csh'),
114 `export LANG; LANG=de_DE' (in `sh') or `export LANG=de_DE' (in `bash').
115 This can be done from your `.login' or `.profile' file, once and for
116 all.
117
118    You might think that the country code specification is redundant.
119 But in fact, some languages have dialects in different countries.  For
120 example, `de_AT' is used for Austria, and `pt_BR' for Brazil.  The
121 country code serves to distinguish the dialects.
122
123    The locale naming convention of `LL_CC', with `LL' denoting the
124 language and `CC' denoting the country, is the one use on systems based
125 on GNU libc.  On other systems, some variations of this scheme are
126 used, such as `LL' or `LL_CC.ENCODING'.  You can get the list of
127 locales supported by your system for your country by running the command
128 `locale -a | grep '^LL''.
129
130    Not all programs have translations for all languages.  By default, an
131 English message is shown in place of a nonexistent translation.  If you
132 understand other languages, you can set up a priority list of languages.
133 This is done through a different environment variable, called
134 `LANGUAGE'.  GNU `gettext' gives preference to `LANGUAGE' over `LANG'
135 for the purpose of message handling, but you still need to have `LANG'
136 set to the primary language; this is required by other parts of the
137 system libraries.  For example, some Swedish users who would rather
138 read translations in German than English for when Swedish is not
139 available, set `LANGUAGE' to `sv:de' while leaving `LANG' to `sv_SE'.
140
141    Special advice for Norwegian users: The language code for Norwegian
142 bokma*l changed from `no' to `nb' recently (in 2003).  During the
143 transition period, while some message catalogs for this language are
144 installed under `nb' and some older ones under `no', it's recommended
145 for Norwegian users to set `LANGUAGE' to `nb:no' so that both newer and
146 older translations are used.
147
148    In the `LANGUAGE' environment variable, but not in the `LANG'
149 environment variable, `LL_CC' combinations can be abbreviated as `LL'
150 to denote the language's main dialect.  For example, `de' is equivalent
151 to `de_DE' (German as spoken in Germany), and `pt' to `pt_PT'
152 (Portuguese as spoken in Portugal) in this context.
153
154 Translating Teams
155 =================
156
157 For the Free Translation Project to be a success, we need interested
158 people who like their own language and write it well, and who are also
159 able to synergize with other translators speaking the same language.
160 Each translation team has its own mailing list.  The up-to-date list of
161 teams can be found at the Free Translation Project's homepage,
162 `http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/', in the "National teams"
163 area.
164
165    If you'd like to volunteer to _work_ at translating messages, you
166 should become a member of the translating team for your own language.
167 The subscribing address is _not_ the same as the list itself, it has
168 `-request' appended.  For example, speakers of Swedish can send a
169 message to `sv-request@li.org', having this message body:
170
171      subscribe
172
173    Keep in mind that team members are expected to participate
174 _actively_ in translations, or at solving translational difficulties,
175 rather than merely lurking around.  If your team does not exist yet and
176 you want to start one, or if you are unsure about what to do or how to
177 get started, please write to `translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to reach the
178 coordinator for all translator teams.
179
180    The English team is special.  It works at improving and uniformizing
181 the terminology in use.  Proven linguistic skill are praised more than
182 programming skill, here.
183
184 Available Packages
185 ==================
186
187 Languages are not equally supported in all packages.  The following
188 matrix shows the current state of internationalization, as of January
189 2004.  The matrix shows, in regard of each package, for which languages
190 PO files have been submitted to translation coordination, with a
191 translation percentage of at least 50%.

741    Some counters in the preceding matrix are higher than the number of
742 visible blocks let us expect.  This is because a few extra PO files are
743 used for implementing regional variants of languages, or language
744 dialects.
745
746    For a PO file in the matrix above to be effective, the package to
747 which it applies should also have been internationalized and
748 distributed as such by its maintainer.  There might be an observable
749 lag between the mere existence a PO file and its wide availability in a
750 distribution.
751
752    If January 2004 seems to be old, you may fetch a more recent copy of
753 this `ABOUT-NLS' file on most GNU archive sites.  The most up-to-date
754 matrix with full percentage details can be found at
755 `http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/matrix.html'.

757 Using `gettext' in new packages
758 ===============================
759
760 If you are writing a freely available program and want to
761 internationalize it you are welcome to use GNU `gettext' in your
762 package.  Of course you have to respect the GNU Library General Public
763 License which covers the use of the GNU `gettext' library.  This means
764 in particular that even non-free programs can use `libintl' as a shared
765 library, whereas only free software can use `libintl' as a static
766 library or use modified versions of `libintl'.
767
768    Once the sources are changed appropriately and the setup can handle
769 the use of `gettext' the only thing missing are the translations.  The
770 Free Translation Project is also available for packages which are not
771 developed inside the GNU project.  Therefore the information given above
772 applies also for every other Free Software Project.  Contact
773 `translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to make the `.pot' files available to
774 the translation teams.
