To help translate Deluge please register at the Launchpad translation site
Marking Text for Translation
To mark text for translation in Python and ExtJS wrap the string with the function _() like this:
For GTK you can move the translation out of the code and into the glade files:
<property name="label" translatable="yes">Max Upload Speed:</property>
For more details see: Python Gettext
These are the overall stages in gettext translation: POT (Portable Object Template) files -> PO (Portable Object) files -> MO (Machine Object) files
- potfiles.in created with create_potfiles_in.py
- deluge.pot created with gettextize.sh
- Upload deluge.pot located in deluge/i18n/ to translation site
- Wait for the translators to translate the text.
- Download the updated PO files for each language from the translation site, extract to deluge/i18n/ and strip the deluge- prefix:
for i in deluge-*.po; do j=`echo $i | cut -d - -f2`; cp $i $j; rm $i; done
- The binary MO files for each language are generated in setup.py by using the msgfmt.py script.
To enable WebUI to use translations update gettext.js with: gen_gettext.py > gettext.js
- podiff - Compare textual information in two PO files
- gtranslator - GUI po file editor
- Poedit - GUI po file editor
Verification that translations are working correctly can be performed by running deluge like this:
If you do not have a particular language installed on your system it will only tranlate based on the binary MO files for Deluge so some GTK text strings will remain in English.
LANGUAGE=fr deluge LANGUAGE=ru_RU.UTF-8 deluge
