Marking Text for Translation

To mark text for translation in Python and ExtJS wrap the string with the function _() like this:

torrent.set_tracker_status(_("Announce OK"))

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

Translation Process

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 from the translation site the updated PO files, extract to deluge/i18n/ and strip the deluge- prefix: rename -f 's/^deluge-//' deluge-*.po
  • 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 by running gen_gettext.py script.

Useful Applications

Testing Translation

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 translate 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
