1Notes on the Free Translation Project
2*************************************
3
4Free software is going international! The Free Translation Project is
5a way to get maintainers of free software, translators, and users all
6together, so that will gradually become able to speak many languages.
7A few packages already provide translations for their messages.
8
9 If you found this `ABOUT-NLS' file inside a distribution, you may
10assume that the distributed package does use GNU `gettext' internally,
11itself available at your nearest GNU archive site. But you do _not_
12need to install GNU `gettext' prior to configuring, installing or using
13this package with messages translated.
14
15 Installers will find here some useful hints. These notes also
16explain how users should proceed for getting the programs to use the
17available translations. They tell how people wanting to contribute and
18work at translations should contact the appropriate team.
19
20 When reporting bugs in the `intl/' directory or bugs which may be
21related to internationalization, you should tell about the version of
22`gettext' which is used. The information can be found in the
23`intl/VERSION' file, in internationalized packages.
24
25Quick configuration advice
26==========================
27
28If you want to exploit the full power of internationalization, you
29should configure it using
30
31 ./configure --with-included-gettext
32
33to force usage of internationalizing routines provided within this
34package, despite the existence of internationalizing capabilities in the
35operating system where this package is being installed. So far, only
36the `gettext' implementation in the GNU C library version 2 provides as
37many features (such as locale alias, message inheritance, automatic
38charset conversion or plural form handling) as the implementation here.
39It is also not possible to offer this additional functionality on top
40of a `catgets' implementation. Future versions of GNU `gettext' will
41very likely convey even more functionality. So it might be a good idea
42to change to GNU `gettext' as soon as possible.
43
44 So you need _not_ provide this option if you are using GNU libc 2 or
45you have installed a recent copy of the GNU gettext package with the
46included `libintl'.
47
48INSTALL Matters
49===============
50
51Some packages are "localizable" when properly installed; the programs
52they contain can be made to speak your own native language. Most such
53packages use GNU `gettext'. Other packages have their own ways to
54internationalization, predating GNU `gettext'.
55
56 By default, this package will be installed to allow translation of
57messages. It will automatically detect whether the system already
58provides the GNU `gettext' functions. If not, the GNU `gettext' own
59library will be used. This library is wholly contained within this
60package, usually in the `intl/' subdirectory, so prior installation of
61the GNU `gettext' package is _not_ required. Installers may use
62special options at configuration time for changing the default
63behaviour. The commands:
64
65 ./configure --with-included-gettext
66 ./configure --disable-nls
67
68will respectively bypass any pre-existing `gettext' to use the
69internationalizing routines provided within this package, or else,
70_totally_ disable translation of messages.
71
72 When you already have GNU `gettext' installed on your system and run
73configure without an option for your new package, `configure' will
74probably detect the previously built and installed `libintl.a' file and
75will decide to use this. This might be not what is desirable. You
76should use the more recent version of the GNU `gettext' library. I.e.
77if the file `intl/VERSION' shows that the library which comes with this
78package is more recent, you should use
79
80 ./configure --with-included-gettext
81
82to prevent auto-detection.
83
84 The configuration process will not test for the `catgets' function
85and therefore it will not be used. The reason is that even an
86emulation of `gettext' on top of `catgets' could not provide all the
87extensions of the GNU `gettext' library.
88
89 Internationalized packages have usually many `po/LL.po' files, where
90LL gives an ISO 639 two-letter code identifying the language. Unless
91translations have been forbidden at `configure' time by using the
92`--disable-nls' switch, all available translations are installed
93together with the package. However, the environment variable `LINGUAS'
94may be set, prior to configuration, to limit the installed set.
95`LINGUAS' should then contain a space separated list of two-letter
96codes, stating which languages are allowed.
97
98Using This Package
99==================
100
101As a user, if your language has been installed for this package, you
102only have to set the `LANG' environment variable to the appropriate
103`LL_CC' combination. Here `LL' is an ISO 639 two-letter language code,
104and `CC' is an ISO 3166 two-letter country code. For example, let's
105suppose that you speak German and live in Germany. At the shell
106prompt, merely execute `setenv LANG de_DE' (in `csh'),
107`export LANG; LANG=de_DE' (in `sh') or `export LANG=de_DE' (in `bash').
108This can be done from your `.login' or `.profile' file, once and for
109all.
110
111 You might think that the country code specification is redundant.
112But in fact, some languages have dialects in different countries. For
113example, `de_AT' is used for Austria, and `pt_BR' for Brazil. The
114country code serves to distinguish the dialects.
115
116 The locale naming convention of `LL_CC', with `LL' denoting the
117language and `CC' denoting the country, is the one use on systems based
118on GNU libc. On other systems, some variations of this scheme are
119used, such as `LL' or `LL_CC.ENCODING'. You can get the list of
120locales supported by your system for your country by running the command
121`locale -a | grep '^LL''.
122
123 Not all programs have translations for all languages. By default, an
124English message is shown in place of a nonexistent translation. If you
125understand other languages, you can set up a priority list of languages.
126This is done through a different environment variable, called
127`LANGUAGE'. GNU `gettext' gives preference to `LANGUAGE' over `LANG'
128for the purpose of message handling, but you still need to have `LANG'
129set to the primary language; this is required by other parts of the
130system libraries. For example, some Swedish users who would rather
131read translations in German than English for when Swedish is not
132available, set `LANGUAGE' to `sv:de' while leaving `LANG' to `sv_SE'.
133
134 Special advice for Norwegian users: The language code for Norwegian
135bokma*l changed from `no' to `nb' recently (in 2003). During the
136transition period, while some message catalogs for this language are
137installed under `nb' and some older ones under `no', it's recommended
138for Norwegian users to set `LANGUAGE' to `nb:no' so that both newer and
139older translations are used.
140
141 In the `LANGUAGE' environment variable, but not in the `LANG'
142environment variable, `LL_CC' combinations can be abbreviated as `LL'
143to denote the language's main dialect. For example, `de' is equivalent
144to `de_DE' (German as spoken in Germany), and `pt' to `pt_PT'
145(Portuguese as spoken in Portugal) in this context.
146
147Translating Teams
148=================
149
150For the Free Translation Project to be a success, we need interested
151people who like their own language and write it well, and who are also
152able to synergize with other translators speaking the same language.
153Each translation team has its own mailing list. The up-to-date list of
154teams can be found at the Free Translation Project's homepage,
155`http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/', in the "National teams"
156area.
157
158 If you'd like to volunteer to _work_ at translating messages, you
159should become a member of the translating team for your own language.
160The subscribing address is _not_ the same as the list itself, it has
161`-request' appended. For example, speakers of Swedish can send a
162message to `sv-request@li.org', having this message body:
163
164 subscribe
165
166 Keep in mind that team members are expected to participate
167_actively_ in translations, or at solving translational difficulties,
168rather than merely lurking around. If your team does not exist yet and
169you want to start one, or if you are unsure about what to do or how to
170get started, please write to `translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to reach the
171coordinator for all translator teams.
172
173 The English team is special. It works at improving and uniformizing
174the terminology in use. Proven linguistic skill are praised more than
175programming skill, here.
176
177Available Packages
178==================
179
180Languages are not equally supported in all packages. The following
181matrix shows the current state of internationalization, as of January
1822004. The matrix shows, in regard of each package, for which languages
183PO files have been submitted to translation coordination, with a
184translation percentage of at least 50%.

734 Some counters in the preceding matrix are higher than the number of
735visible blocks let us expect. This is because a few extra PO files are
736used for implementing regional variants of languages, or language
737dialects.
738
739 For a PO file in the matrix above to be effective, the package to
740which it applies should also have been internationalized and
741distributed as such by its maintainer. There might be an observable
742lag between the mere existence a PO file and its wide availability in a
743distribution.
744
745 If January 2004 seems to be old, you may fetch a more recent copy of
746this `ABOUT-NLS' file on most GNU archive sites. The most up-to-date
747matrix with full percentage details can be found at
748`http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/matrix.html'.

750Using `gettext' in new packages
751===============================
752
753If you are writing a freely available program and want to
754internationalize it you are welcome to use GNU `gettext' in your
755package. Of course you have to respect the GNU Library General Public
756License which covers the use of the GNU `gettext' library. This means
757in particular that even non-free programs can use `libintl' as a shared
758library, whereas only free software can use `libintl' as a static
759library or use modified versions of `libintl'.
760
761 Once the sources are changed appropriately and the setup can handle
762the use of `gettext' the only thing missing are the translations. The
763Free Translation Project is also available for packages which are not
764developed inside the GNU project. Therefore the information given above
765applies also for every other Free Software Project. Contact
766`translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to make the `.pot' files available to
767the translation teams.
