Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3375) Localize new error messages added in 10.3
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2008 14:42:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3375?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12569912#action_12569912

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-3375:
--------------------------------------

I took a quick look at the xml grammars which Andrew mentioned. The first one, TMX, looks
like it's rich enough to handle what we need here--but it may be overkill for what we're doing.
The second grammar, XLIFF, doesn't seem rich enough, at least not at first glance: its translation
units seem to support only one target translation of the source text rather than the 14 or
so targets which we need. I think it should be easy to generate these other formats from our
xml grammar if we have to.

One detail to keep in mind: The proposed grammar treats all of the localizations as equal
citizens. However, in Derby, English plays the special role of being the default language,
that is, the text you get if the community hasn't gotten around to localizing an error message
for your language. As a sanity check, the MessageBuilder should make sure that an English
variant is available for every message. Alternatively, the grammer could be tweaked so that
the xml parser could sanity check the file for us--that is, the English text could live in
a special, required element.
