Re: [libreoffice-l10n] Help changes, problematic for l10n


Hi, Heiko,

the system you introduced does not allow grammatical cases of the localized
keys. So it doesn't work OK for some languages, it is faulty.

Of course, if you think it is possible, you can upgrade it to work, so it
will have also a parameter in which case the string should be, and also the
build process should then use the proper dictionaries for all l10n
languages of LO (possible to generate all word cases), so that could work.
It seems a complex job to me, but I might be wrong.

Lp, m.
