András mentioned the (possible) translation of the LibreLogo module in his
previous letter. LibreLogo is a native language, Logo-like (a simplified
procedural language with turtle graphics) programming interface/lightweight
environment to the excellent vector graphics of LibreOffice. More

Translations of the LibreLogo commands are defined by property files, for
example the English one:
Commands and their alternative and optional abbreviated forms separated by
vertical bars. First item is the non-abbreviated, default form, like
"forward" and its abbreviation, "fd" in the following example:


1. It is recommended (and easier) to use the existing native language
translation of the original Logo programming language, if it exists. Eg.
the Hungarian translation of "forward" and its abbreviated form are the
same as in the closed source, closed platform-dependent Logo environments
used in Hungarian schools:


2. Quotation marks to annotate strings and decimal signs are also
localized, eg.


in Hungarian


3. For agglutinative languages, postfix form(s) of the IN operator are also
supported (starting with hyphen or colon):

IN=-ban|-ben  # Hungarian noun case
IN=:ssa|:ssä # suggested for Finnish

FOR a IN b [ ]

In Hungarian:

FUT a b-BEN [ ]

RTL language support hasn't checked yet, but I will make LibreLogo
extensions with the new translations to test it and other features.

Any feedback and questions are welcome,
Best regards,
