Zurmo Translation Process Suggestion

Dear all,

My name is Amigo. I have join the team to help on the Traditional Chinese Translation.

Because Zurmo provides two translation process, I test both and suggest as below:

1. Preferred to translate for 5 minutes or less

Use the online translation without downloading the PO file. Press [Save Changes] to commit your translation.

http://translate.zurmo.org/translate/languages/zh-hant/translate

2. Preferred to work as batch

Use the following page to download PO file with settings Project: Zurmo, All releases merged, Add Chinese, Traditional suggestions, and Verbose output.

http://translate.zurmo.org/translate/languages/zh-hant/export

After download, you may text editor to open and edit in UTF-8 mode. Add the translation in msgstr.

Please add an comments under this article about when and what you are going to translate. This will save time by no duplicate works.

For example, after download the latest PO file, I plan to translate from msgid "Add File" to msgid "Add Files". And I expect to upload on 2013/6/10. I will write as below:

Subject: [Amigo] Translation Schedule on 2013/6/10

Schedule to Upload: 2013/6/11

Begin:
#: allMessages-1.5.15.pot:0; allMessages-1.6.00.pot:0
msgctxt "Default"
msgid "(None)"

End:
#: allMessages-1.5.15.pot:0; allMessages-1.6.00.pot:0
msgctxt "Default"
msgid "Add File"

After translation, save you PO file and then upload with following import page:

http://translate.zurmo.org/translate/languages/zh-hant/import

I am also new to use PO for translation. Therefore, please share your ideas if you have better process to save time on translation. I will modify this article when we both agree.

Also, I use the Translation based on Microsoft's Translation Service. It should help most user to understand the technical terms.

Have a nice day!
