Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3375) Localize new error messages added in 10.3
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2008 16:04:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3375?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12570284#action_12570284
] 

Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-3375:
----------------------------------------------

I don't think the comment block is a good idea, it doesn't cover new languages so the so-called
"merge problem" would still be there. Also if anyone writes a tool to aid with translation
then the comments are going to be left in the file.

I don't think there's any issue with merges, this is an XML format which means it's structured,
so simple tools can be written to process any input from a translator, e.g. normalize it,
extract what's different from its original, apply that to the latest version etc.

Also picking an existing standard format is a good approach, this may make it easier for translators
as they may have tools that process the file. Also it may mean we have access to existing
tools to process the file, e.g. for handing multiple versions from different translators.
