Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-5892) Help people create translatable messages by summarizing the rules which the translators follow.
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2012 17:44:10 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5892?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5892:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: derby-5892-01-aa-documentArgumentOrder.diff

Attaching derby-5892-01-aa-documentArgumentOrder.diff. This adds some more advice to the website
page which describes how to write messages which go into messages.xml and end up being documented
in the Reference Guide. Committed at subversion revision 1370383.

I also edited the wiki page which describes the Derby message files: http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/LocalizingDerbyMessages
. There I listed big rules for writing messages which are easy to translate.

Touches the following files:

M       build/site/manuals/messages.html
M       src/documentation/content/xdocs/manuals/messages.xml

> We should list the rules which are applied by the people who translate Derby messages
from English into other languages. This will help us create messages which are easier to translate
and less likely to be mis-translated.
> We should also list some big rules to guide us in internationalizing our messages (e.g.,
don't insert independently localized strings inside other strings).
> This documentation can go here: http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/messages.html
