Hi Joan,

I have few questions about smart quotes feature and LibreOffice 4.2

There are strings in pootle to localize smart quotes, see double [1] and
single [2] in Pootle.

I wonder why these strings are marked as translatable, because those are
the ASCII characters that you type in on the keyboard that shall be
replaced with proper typographic quotes if enabled. IMHO they should
never be translated.

So, if I localize these strings to use « (and ») for double quotes, will
they work in document writing? or it's just used for setting's menu.

Just used in the menu.

I want to customize Catalan quotes (double and single) and enable them by
default. How can be this be achieved?

The actual replacement is determined from the locale data that is not
subject to pootle. In this case
i18npool/source/localedata/data/ca_ES.xml Markers QuotationStart/End and
DoubleQuotationStart/End, or see

You could create a patch and submit it to gerrit or mail it to me. Or
tell me which characters are to be used and I'll change it.
