In an ideal world I'd love those tools to inject the found errors back
into Pootle so that you have one place to find and fix errors and no
cryptic strings we need to search for. If anyone would want to try code
that please give me a shout and we can work out what needs to be done.
So now there are 3 checks in place for translations:
gsicheck - standard check for tags etc.
readmecheck - same as gsicheck but for the readme
doublecheck - check if different English strings were translated into
the same at critical parts of the code
Pootle also contains checks for many potential translation bugs. There
are many false positives but it finds many real bugs. Please go through
them, especially 'variables' and 'escapes', because these can be fatal
We need your help with these false positives:
1) If a test makes no sense in your language, e.g. startcaps in
languages with no capitals, then please report that to the Pootle
developers as we can switch these off for your language.
2) Please report false positives that affect your language and that you
think could/should be fixed in the code.
Please also try to mark your false positives. This allows you to reduce
your error count to zero and will then show real errors clearly. You
can do that by clicking on the cross next to the check when you are in
We haven't had much testing of what happens to false positives when the
files are upgraded, you would help us test and find bugs here.
