It is assumed that if you intend translating pages off-line you have some experience with Lokalize or a similar tool, therefore this page only addresses the on-line part of the process, the part that is carried out within TechBase.

[edit] Workflow

  • Request addition to the Translator group:
    • Click on Get a Translator Account in the sidebar
    • Click on the Edit tab and enter your username, the language you want to translate for and if you intend to translate off-line
    • Use Save page to save the information
  • When your user has been added to the group (you should get an e-mail notification), click on Start Translating in the sidebar
  • Enter the language you want to translate to in Language code and click on Go (You can select to suppress pages that are 100% complete.)
  • Choose your page to work on, from the list presented - this will take you to the tool where you choose on-line or off-line translation.
  • In order to reduce the risk of edit conflicts, upload your work frequently. You can continue to work on other sections from your downloaded file - import will know which sections are new.

[edit] Export the page

  • The top combi-box I want to... should be set to Export translation in Gettext format.
  • Check that the page-name and language are correctly set.
  • Go completes the export.

[edit] Import the new translation

Initially you are requested to send the translated file to us. Here is the procedure:

  • Click the Special Pages link in the sidebar.
  • In the Wiki data and tools section, click Import Translations.
  • You can assign the URL of the file, or a file that was already uploaded in this wiki, or upload your translated po files directly.
  • After uploading the files, a diff page will be shown. You can examine each modified entry there.
