Hello Andras

I finished pt-BR yesterday, so one last piece of my 3.4 help files will miss 3.4.... sigh.... will get it on RC's... :-)

About the check indicated, and looking into other translations, pt-BR has just one (ONE !!!) little false positive. So either I am a genius and extremely carefull guy at my work, or the script failed to pick other errors, as it did for other languages... :-)

Can you double check?

Thank you

Sunday night I exported updated po files from Pootle and pushed them to
git to the translations module. LibreOffice 3.4 beta 2 will contain
these translation updates.

Please note, however, that there are still bugs in your translations
that need to be fixed ASAP.

Our friends at OOo project developed a new script that checks for
duplicated translations. There are parts of the code where translations
should be unique. For example in Calc function names, SEARCH and FIND
must not be translated into the same term. These translation errors lead
to mysterious bugs. For more explanation see

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

Locales with bugs:
as, ast, be, bg, bn, bo, br, brx, bs, ca-XV, ca, cy, dgo, el, en-ZA, eo,
et, fa, fr, gl, gu, he, hi, hr, id, it, ja, ka, kk, kn, kok, ks, ku, lt,
lv, mai, mk, ml, mn, mni, mr, my, nb, ne, nn, nr, nso, oc, om, or, pl,
pt-BR, pt, ro, ru, rw, sa-IN, sat, sd, sh, sk, sl, sq, sr, st, sv, ta,
te, tg, tn, tr, ts, ug, uk, uz, vi

Log files (from all tools) and error files (from gsicheck tool):

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
