Fwd: Re: Hebrew translation

James Crook
Hi afik,

Your translation has some problems, so it can't yet be used.  Here is an
example:

msgid "File '%s' already exists, do you really want to overwrite it?"
msgstr "הקובץ  כבר קיים. האם אתה בטוח שברצונך להחליף אותו? "

When Audacity runs, the %s will be replaced by the name of a file.  In
your translation there needs to be a %s too, so that Audacity knows
where to put the name of the file.


Some of the problems are problems we have with Right-To-Left languages.
We do not support Right-To-Left languages well yet in Audacity.

Other problems are with missing strings for translation.  There is for
example no Hebrew translation for "Cl&ear" and there is a translation
from English into English for "decode an autosave file"

I think he.po is best regarded as an experiment, at least for 2.2.0.
The problem of missing %s have to be fixed for it to work at all.  When
those %s problems are fixed, it should be possible to try it out, and
we/you can at least get a sense of what else needs to be done to support
Hebrew fully and properly.

Accessibility of Audacity is also a problem.  We use a library called
wxWidgets, and we were forced to 'upgrade' to version 3 of the library.
This wrecked most of our accessibility work for Mac.   We are reasonably
accessible on Windows though.

I don't think your work on he.po is going to lead to a satisfactory
result for 2.2.0, but it may well help towards a future version.

--James.
