Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-5879) Fix problems in English messages disclosed by a localization audit.
Date Mon, 06 Aug 2012 21:15:02 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5879?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Myrna van Lunteren updated DERBY-5879:

    Attachment: derby-5879-j9_f_outparams.diff

Since revision 1369173 the test lang/outparams.java is failing for weme6.2 (an implementation
of j2ME/CDC/Foundation profile). This is because the master for this test was changed, but
not the canon for j9_foundation.

Attaching patch derby-5879-j9_f_outparams.diff that fixes up this canon. It makes the same
changes to master/j9_foundation/outparams.out as 1369173 to master/outparams.out; i.e. changing
"datetime" to "date/time" in 78 places. I will commit shortly.

> 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
> I am filing this issue as a place to hold patches which address issues raised by the
localization audit.
