1 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'.

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.
