Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5879:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: derby-5879-06-aa-doNotTranslate.diff

Attaching derby-5879-06-aa-doNotTranslate.diff. This patch addresses issues with message strings
which should not be translated, and with strings which should be translated but which appear
as untranslatable literals to the translators. I am running regression tests now.

In general, the translators think that they should not translate words which appear in ALL
CAPS or camelCase. This convention is not unique to this team of translators but appears to
have been observed by some (but not all) previous translators of the Derby messages, as can
be seen by inspecting the current localizations.

Changes made by this patch fall into the following major categories:

1) Conversion between ALL CAPS and regular casing.

2) Conversion between camelCase and regular casing.

3) Addition of comments.

4) Deletion of unused messages.

Touches the following files:

M       java/tools/org/apache/derby/loc/sysinfoMessages.properties
M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/loc/messages.xml
M       java/shared/org/apache/derby/shared/common/reference/SQLState.java

> The team which is localizing the 10.9 messages would like to audit our existing messages
to ensure that they are easy to translate. A quick glance at their audit results shows many
issues in the following categories:
> 1) Multi-line messages whose formatting confuses the translators. Translators tend to
be language experts and not experts in the arcana of how Java properties files are formatted.
I am hoping that these issues can be addressed by simply prefixing the multi-line messages
with comments, explaining the arcane formatting.
> 2) Grammar, punctuation, and capitalization problems. I think we should just clean these
up.
> I am filing this issue as a place to hold patches which address issues raised by the
localization audit.
