Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3375) Localize new error messages added in 10.3
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2008 16:20:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3375?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12569935#action_12569935

Dyre Tjeldvoll commented on DERBY-3375:

Kathey> is the goal to combine all the translated messages into a single xml file?


Kathey> Wouldn't that make it hard to distribute the translations to different parts of
the world and merge them back together again? 

Not sure I understand why that would be the case. Why would it be harder to distribute an
xml file than a set of property files?

Dyre> I wouldn't want to make it harder on the translators or the community to contribute/merge

Nor would I. But I don't see why that would be the case. Sure, anybody translating messages
would have to update the same file, but since each translation would be on a separate line
in the xml file it should be easy to merge the diffs coming from each translator. And from
my own experience with this I have to say that I think a single file would make it  much easier
to see which messages have been translated into what languages. It would also make it easier
to spot errors in the translation like the ones Knut has pointed out, since you can easily
view the English and the translated version next to each other...
