Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6061) Upgrade language is inconsistent
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2013 21:51:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6061?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13580851#comment-13580851

Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-6061:
-------------------------------------------

The Russian, Czech, Hungarian and Polish language files were contributed by IBM a long time
ago - but no further translations will be coming from that source. Oracle does not contribute
translations for these languages.
So yes, Russian and those other languages will fall further and further behind.

Derby should pop up the English version for messages for which there is no translation in
a particular locale.
(Note that for this reason, if we *change* languages, we *should* remove the translation from
these comatose language files. Better to get a correct English message than nonsense in the
local locale.).

> In the Developer's Guide we describe two kinds of upgrade, "full" and "soft". I think
we used to use the terms "hard" and "soft", and "hard" was changed to "full" to provide a
more accurate description of what happens. There are still a few leftover occurrences of "hard"
in the docs here and there.
> However, "soft" doesn't provide much indication of what happens in that kind of upgrade.
Would "partial" be more correct? If not, is there a good alternative?
> I can go through the docs and fix the language based on whatever you all think makes
sense.
