John T. Haller Homepage) - December 8, 2009 - 2:45am
The first round is complete, but we are still in need of updates for Albanian, Belarussian, Danish, Filipino, Galician, Indonesian, Irish, Korean, Latvian, Luxembourgish, Malay, Sundanese, Thai and Ukranian... as well as any languages not included in the downloadable ZIP file.
To contribute, please visit this topic:
It's time again to do translations for the PortableApps.com Platform's next release. I've posted a zip file including all the current translations from 2.0 Beta 3 along with the updates submitted since then. The English.locale file includes the translations along with updates needed for the PortableApps.com Platform 2.0 and 2.1. Please do not create a completely new translation, work with the existing one and build on it... many eyes have already been on these.
Additions made on 2009-12-08 @ 12:00pm NY Time:
ICON_MENU_CHANGE_DOCUMENT_ROOT=Change Documents Path ICON_MENU_RESET=Reset to Defaults ... MENU_OPTIONS_TRANSPARENCY=Transparency
(If you have already don the translation, you can just add these as a comment reply to your post)
In particular, the following are new since 2.0 Beta 3:
[FORM_MAIN] APP_MENU_EXPLORE_HERE=&Explore Here APP_MENU_ALWAYS_SHOW_ALL=Always Show All Apps APP_MENU_SHOW_CATEGORIES=Show Categories in All Apps View APP_MENU_ALL_APPS=All Portable Apps APP_MENU_BACK=Back APP_MENU_CATEGORY=Category APP_MENU_CATEGORY_ADD=Add a New Category APP_MENU_CATEGORY_ACCESSIBILITY=Accessibility APP_MENU_CATEGORY_DEVELOPMENT=Development APP_MENU_CATEGORY_EDUCATION=Education APP_MENU_CATEGORY_GAMES=Games APP_MENU_CATEGORY_GRAPHICS_AND_PICTURES=Graphics and Pictures APP_MENU_CATEGORY_INTERNET=Internet APP_MENU_CATEGORY_MUSIC_AND_VIDEO=Music and Video APP_MENU_CATEGORY_OFFICE=Office APP_MENU_CATEGORY_OPERATING_SYSTEMS=Operating Systems APP_MENU_CATEGORY_UTILITIES=Utilities APP_MENU_CATEGORY_OTHER=Other ... ICON_MENU_CHANGE_PATH=Change Path ICON_MENU_CHANGE_ICON=Change Icon ... MENU_OPTIONS_LANGUAGE_SWITCHING=App Language S&witching
The UPDATER sections and several others have not yet been updated for many of our supported translations, so please be sure all sections and all lines in your locale are up to date.
Note that APP_MENU_BACK=Back means back as in a browser's back button, returning to the previous list of apps from the full list.
Categories are scheduled for 2.1 which will be coming soon after 2.0, so I'd like to get the translations done now so we don't have to wait on them at all.
You can download the full set of translations here:
Go based on English.locale and update your translation of choice (or create a new one). If your translation of choice uses an alternate character set (ex: Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew), the characters will appear oddly in your text editor. You can adjust this by changing the character set to the one mentioned in the Codepage= line at the end of the first INI section. In Notepad++ Portable, you do this by clicking Encoding - Character Sets - [Language] - Windows [CodePage]. EditPad Lite may be better at handling this for some languages and can be changed by clicking Convert - Text Encoding and then selecting the appropriate character set.
Once complete, please post your locale in a new topic here and title the topic with the name of your locale file (ex: SpanishInternational.locale). You can post it in a set of PRE tags by writing out the following in your post:
<PRE>pasting in your locale file here</PRE>
Any comments to a translation can be posted as a reply to that translation's post. Please keep discussion in English and enclose complete updated lines in PRE tags. Don't just add individual strings or strikeouts as a non-native speaker of your locale (like me) won't know what to keep and what to throw out.
Thanks for everyone's help in making this the best release yet!!
