Update french translation for Fog 1.5.9
I would like to improve the French translation of FOG. So, I followed this tutorial (https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=How_to_translate_FOG) but it starts badly because the message.pot file (http://freeghost.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/freeghost/trunk/packages/web/management/languages/messages.pot) is not available.
How should I proceed, is there a new translation solution?
Thanks a lot !
@Bristow-0 Nice. Great to hear you have been working on this.
To try out your updated file run the following commands to convert the PO-file to a MO-file:
cp /path/of/updated/messages.po /var/www/html/fog/management/languages/fr_FR.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/ msgfmt -o /var/www/html/fog/management/languages/fr_FR.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/messages.mo /var/www/html/fog/management/languages/fr_FR.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po
I have made good progress on the translation of FOG into French.
There was a lot of work. Currently, I’m trying to translate directly in PoEdit but is there a solution to see my work in FOG, knowing that I installed FOG (dev-branch) on a VM…
PS : I should be able to push my file this week…
Thank you for your reply @sebastian-roth
So I forked the project and started the translation, there is a lot of work!
Is there an end date for this translation to arrive in the next version of FOG?
@Bristow-0 Best if you fork the fogproject repo on github in your account. There you can work on the translations and send in a pull request to be merged into the official project.
Be aware that current work is done on the so called
dev-branch. Please work on this instead of the default branch
Ok, i found message.po on GitHub : https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FOGProject/fogproject/dev-branch/packages/web/management/languages/fr_FR.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po
Perhaps the wiki page mentioned above should be modified…
If I modify the message.po file for the French language, how do I submit it for the future version?
