Awesome! :)

I've just committed the German translation in source trunk, now that we have a working one that others can use and understand, things should go smoother.

Check it out from and build a new buildout - note that is from SVN trunk so don't go production on this, okay? You can see the German translation by changing your browser language to German, when you visit your new site. More instructions and info coming really, really soon. The .POT and .PO files for English, Hindi and German are in the <buildoutdir>/src/ubify.policy/ubify/policy/i18n folder.

Offray and Macagua also are volunteering for this, will co-ordinate with all of you on this ASAP.

Ok then, I will wait for the info.

I have done the checkout of the svn respository and now I'm working in the translation of trunk/src/ubify.policy/ubify/policy/i18n/cynin-es.po making corrections on the translation. Once I have finished, just made the checkin against the repository and is done?

Well essentially, yes. But it's a bit more involved than that:

You'd first need to be a "developer" member on the translations project on ODN (to get commit rights on SVN).

The manual translation will be most welcome, though, of course! Current translation file is basically auto-generated from using API calls to Google Translate, so some of the words that are translated are just wrong and need to be fixed. Still, it's better/easier to start off from there than a fully empty translation file. What translation tool are you using for working with the .po file? I recommend POEdit, there are some other popular tools as well.

Maybe if you can update it soon, we can pack it right into 3.0.6 public release, instead of waiting for next release after that. So please go ahead and work on the file you've found, it's the correct one, in the correct place.

Once you're done with first iteration (and if we've not already given you commit access by then) just upload the translation file into the community and point it out - there's some wiki pages, etc. coming up with more details on this soon.

I have just installed poedit. Previously I was using Leo Editor, and leave translation for a while because I want to understand development better, but if you're planning to release 3.0.6. I will retake translation ASAP so it can be integrated in that release (these are slow days because of Christmas).

About development. I see no introductory documentation. I would like to create a "extended rating system" as a first exercise. The idea is to create a Spanish speaking developer community that can give back development to

dhiraj Dec 21, 2009 09:40 PM
Wait. 3.0.6 got released as 3.1 and the CD is now available. Check the release announcement. Spanish translation file is included along-with auto-translation from Google Translate, so you'll have to do a lot less work, I'm hoping.

Check it out. Tell us what you think. Upgrades to apt-get repo are being pushed and tested, please test on a non-production system first. :)

I have just dowloaded the 3.1 version. I will try to install it in Arch Linux (the production version now is runnig on Debian) as an aditional experiment and keep you posted and yes is a lot less work to start with an automatic translation. We will come with something for Spanish documentation (not only interface) soon.

What about the developers documentation?
dhiraj Dec 22, 2009 09:44 AM
Hmm.... developer documentation is a bit scarce at the moment. We're working on improving this, but if you ask for specific areas we can help you out.

The ratings (+1 / -1 ) is provided by a modified old plone product called ATRatings. This used to give a 5 star rating, and also do view hit counting. We've modified this to do the current behavior. You can find this product in the products folder (not in src). The product at it's basic provides a macro that is implemented in the item detail and in the listers. Have a look, tell us if you need more info in a particular area of this.
