Bit Che - Translators Wanted!
« on: September 14, 2006, 07:12:41 pm »
I am always looking for translators to help create language files.

Here is the list of current translations:    https://github.com/convivea/bit-che-3-scripts/tree/master/languages



Instructions for translating Bit Che into your language:

1. Go to Bit Che:  File | Languages and click the link that says "Open Folder".. you should be at a directory like "C:\Users\[name]\App Data\Convivea\Bit_Che\2\Languages\". 

2. Copy 'English.ini' to the new language you are translating to. For example:  'NewLanguage.ini'

3. Edit this 'NewLanguage.ini' and translate only the text to the right of the '=' signs. For example, if you see "mnuH=Hello" then only translate the word 'Hello'.

4. Load up Bit Che and check to make sure the translations appear correctly. You might need to shorten the text for some of the buttons to appear correctly.

5. Once you are pleased with your results, attach your language file here to a forum post:
To do this, make a reply post here in this thread. While you are editing your post, you will see a link at the bottom that says "(Additional Options)".. click that and a file upload box will be displayed which will allow you to attach your language.ini straight to your post here.


and then you are done!


Instructions for updating an existing Language file:
1. Go to Bit Che:  File | Languages and click the link that says "Open Folder".. you should be at a directory like "C:\Users\[name]\App Data\Convivea\Bit_Che\2\Languages\". 

2. Open the Language.ini that you wish to edit.

3. Remove any "!" from the items.. for example, if you see  "!chkAutoRemove=Auto remove.."  then remove the "!" and translate "Auto remove.."

note:  the "!" means there is not a translation yet for that item so the English version is being used.

4. Close and then Load up Bit Che and check to make sure the translations appear correctly. You might need to shorten the text for some of the buttons to appear correctly.

5. Once you are pleased with your results, attach your language file here to a forum post:
To do this, make a reply post here in this thread. While you are editing your post, you will see a link at the bottom that says "(Additional Options)".. click that and a file upload box will be displayed which will allow you to attach your language.ini straight to your post here.





If you have any questions or any problems, don't hesitate to ask!)

Ps, I have a large database of country flags so you don't need to worry about the country flag icon.

Thank you in advance!

turegum's Tips for translators:

- Download and install Azureus (or uTorrent) and then toggle between English an your own language (tools-options-interface-language). Azureus has most of the torrenting related words you need already translated.
- If you have your own language Firefox you can compare the translations with and English version.
- Some Open Source projects (like GNOME) might have a localization pages including a computer related word dictionary on the local language web site. Check / Google that.
- Other sources: Babelfish, Google Rosetta project, computer dictionaries, Local language pages in Wikipedia, torrenting related translated ebooks, the torrenting geek sitting next to you...

Work slowly. If you get stuck with an expression or word, leave it for a while and come back to it later. don't try to force the translation.

Working properly on Bit Che 3.0.8 version. Works well on the new Bit Che 3.1.0 version.

Attached is a corrected Slovenian.ini file.

Please find the Catalan language file attached.
I have not been able to locate the sentences "Default" and "Show hidden scripts" under "Scripts Pack" menu option, in the language file in order to translate them...
Best regards!

Does Bit Che support UTF-8 properly? I have a fully translated Vietnamese script for 3.0.10, but Bit Che was not able to render it properly. If anyone can try and confirm this it would be greatly appreciated!

I dont think it can read UTF-8 files, but can you try saving the .ini with Unicode (UTF-16), and see if that helps? Also, your Windows System Language would need to be set for Vietnamese (Character Set 1066).

I'm working on a new version of Bit Che that helps improve Unicode support.

Alright, it does seem that Bit Che will need proper UTF-16 support because only 50% of the script was rendered properly, and anything pass the 8th bit could not be rendered. Also, it is not recommended to rely on Character Set 1066 (aka VNI) because it has font restriction and horrible compatibility, and UTF-8/16 makes things much easier in the long run.

Thank you for taking your time and effort in considering this case, chip. I will still leave this script on because it works properly and anyone can use it to test in the future. Looking forward to the new version with Unicode support!  ;D

I beg to in language package current Slovenian.ini file (there are many language errors - some examples will be shown below) is removed and replaced with this attached Slovenian.ini file.

Examples:

version=3.5.12

properly
Code: [Select]
[language]
name=Slovenščina
author=by MacQ and Ivek23
version=3.5.12

wrong
Code: [Select]
mnuClipboard=Kopiraj URL torrenta > Odložišèe
mnuClipboardName=Torrent Ime > Odložišèe
mnuClipboardSource=Vir URL  > Odložišèe
mnuClipboardThis=Kopiraj v odložišèe
mnuMagnetLink=Magnet Link > Odložišèe

properly
Code: [Select]
mnuClipboard=Kopiraj URL torrenta > Odložišče
mnuClipboardName=Torrent Ime > Odložišče
mnuClipboardSource=Vir URL  > Odložišče
mnuClipboardThis=Kopiraj v odložišče
mnuMagnetLink=Magnet Link > Odložišče

wrong
Code: [Select]
cmdSearch=Išèi

These are just some examples of them but there is more.

Hello,

I started from zero (and finished) the translation of Bit Che to Portuguese (Brazil) [pt-BR]. So, when possible, please add it.

I think the other two translations (Brazilian.ini and Brazilian2.ini) could be removed because they are incomplete, outdated and because does not make sense three versions of the same language.


Thank you, and congratulations for the great work.
