KompoZer 0.8b3 in Slovenian
While most of the KompoZer 0.7.10 language packs have been upgraded to KompoZer 0.8, we’ve set up a Narro server to help localization teams work on new locales. The Finnish locale has been the first one to be fully translated, other locales are still in progress: Irish, Korean, Ukrainian, Brazilian, Swedish, Turkish, Bulgarian… and Slovenian.
The Slovenian localization has been done by Roman Bobnarič. The only untranslated strings were related to the css.properties file, and there hasn’t been any progress on these strings for months. But yesterday we found out that these strings weren't translated for other official Gecko 1.8 applications either, so Cédric Corazza (l10n lead) and I had a little talk about that.
Cédric’s opinion is simple:
if any single string is untranslated, the locale isn’t ready, period. He doesn’t care if some losers working on an unknown project like Firefox don’t have similar quality standards. :-)
However, this css.properties file has been fully translated for Gecko 1.9.2, so I’ve copied as many strings as possible from the new file. On the 89 untranslated strings, 73 could be updated and 16 couldn’t be translated.
Anyway, the result is that we’ve just published Slovenian builds of KompoZer for Windows, MacOSX and GNU/Linux on the download page — 20 languages are now supported by KompoZer! \o/
there’s little work to do to finish the following locales:
Feel free to drop a message if you’re willing to help on these locales. Of course, if you feel like contributing another translation, you’re very welcome. :-)
Matjaž Horvat has just submitted a patch to fix the 16 untranslated strings (and a little more…). Thanks! Cédric will sleep much better now. :-D
