Localisation

Translation to other languages is highly appreciated - please contact the Sahana Localization team for advice.

Translating Eden to a new language

Create language file:

You can then either edit this in the Web2Py admin UI or else convert to a .po file for use in standard PO file tools such as Virtaal:

You can -also- try a new method, using a beta tool, which translates any file (including the web2py languages files) using the Google Translate API:

  • Go to Auto-Translator, download, uncompress the .tar.gz archive
  • Inside the uncompressed directory, execute the application with:
    • ./autotranslate.py (parameters) or
    • python autotranslate.py (parameters)

(The parameters are: filename, origin language and destination language)
Example: ./autotranslate.py /home/johndoe/web2py/applications/eden/languages/es.py en es
Wait (you'll see an advance status) and DONE. Just refine the translations (inside web2py or just open with a text editor)

Please provide any bug report or problem to the main list

Pootle/translate toolkit

  • Sahana Pootle server is available as on online facility for collaboration, translation refinement and workflow control

Wiki pages translation

  • translated pages with ISO 639-2 language code extension (original english page = no extension), e.g.
    • original page: eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BluePrintInternationalisation
    • german translation: eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BluePrintInternationalisation/de
  • insert [[TranslatedPages]] macro to display a list of available translations of a page (at best at bottom of page)
