2 translate motv app
5 The new motif-gui version has i18n support, it is handled by using
6 different application default files for the different languages. All
7 the strings are in the MoTV-<lang> files. MoTV-default is the english
8 version. MoTV-fixed has the other (language-independant) app-default
9 settings. The Makefile merges these into MoTV.<lang>.ad files.
11 To add another language you just need to create a new MoTV-<lang>
12 file, edit x11/Subdir.mk and add the language to the LANGUAGES= line.
13 You can test the translations without "make install" this way (bash):
15 once at start:
17 $ cd x11
18 $ export XUSERFILESEARCHPATH="./%N.%l.ad:./%N.ad"
19 $ export LC_ALL=<lang>
21 every time after editing MoTV-<lang>:
23 $ make
24 $ ./motv
27 translate documentation
30 The applications come with a manual page as documentation. Most manual
31 pages are in the man/ subdirectory. Translated manual pages are very
32 welcome, I can easily add them to the distribution tarball. It is a
33 good idea to add your email address to the translated page, so people
34 can reach you directly with spell fixes and stuff like that. I can't
35 proof-read pages in foreign languages ...
38 other stuff
41 Currently I have no plans to localize xawtv and the command line tools.
