Re: Translation tool

These files are plain text files. So you may use any text editor you'd like. It could be easier for you if you use an editor that do syntax highlighting for Perl code such as emacs.

Let me know if you need some help to understand the structure of the languages files. There is a few information here: http://www.gcstar.org/contribute#translate

Re: Translation tool

The benefit of using translations tools is for ease updating strings specially if you want to change your source code files, if you use any translation tool you don't need to re-translate the translated strings before ...
for more instruction about what i mean http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gettext

Let me know if you need some help to understand the structure of the languages files.

Till now I've no problem cuz i didn't start translation process till now, cuz my ToDo list is full, for that I've add GCStar to my ToDo so I'll start translation process at: 10/2/2007...

It could be easier for you if you use an editor that do syntax highlighting for Perl code such as emacs.

Thanks i'm using http://eclipse.org/

Re: Translation tool

As with gettext, if you translate something once, it will be in the language file, so you won't have to do it again.

Re: Translation tool

I think you will find most of the information you need on this page:

http://wiki.gcstar.org/en/translators

If some are missing, please let me know.

Concerning pm files, as mentioned before, they are plain text files containing (key => value) pairs. It could be edited with any text editor.
