Date Thu, 02 Nov 2006 23:56:26 GMT
provide checking tool to flag possible errors in message translations

                 Key: DERBY-2037
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2037
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Test
          Components: Localization
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Myrna van Lunteren
         Assigned To: Myrna van Lunteren
            Priority: Minor

It would be useful to have a tool available that flags possible translation file issues, such
- missing translations for (new) English messages
- mismatched parameters between English and non-English messages
- translation of keywords 
- quoting problems (i.e. use of double quotes when single quotes should be used, use of single
quotes when double quotes should be used. This is based on what's described in the MessageFormat
api doc)
- mismatched characters such as < (when meaning smaller than), > (when meaning larger
than), % etc.
- identification of invalid characters, specifically characters in the range of 0x00-0x1f
(which are ASCII) and 0x7f-0xff

Note that such a tool cannot be definite (except about the missing messages) because the English
messages are not following very strict formatting, and because what's acceptable syntax/grammar
in one language may not work in another. 

A discussion about a first cut at such a tool can be found at:
