Dear Naruhiko Ogasawara,

2013/1/6 Naruhiko Ogasawara <>

Dear Laszlo Nemeth,

I have read Andras Timar's mail posted in l10n ML.

Please let Laszlo Nemeth (nemeth @ know, if you
localize the commands, because the supported languages are hard coded
in the source code, he needs to enable it for you, it it is not
already there.

Could you add Japanese (ja) as a translated language?

Many thanks for your work and mail. Hardcoding language codes is only
required for the optional translation of the Japanese language Logo
commands to their English equivalents (“magic” icon on the Logo toolbar).
Only English to Japanese translation works now, but I will set Japanese
language guessing, too.

And let me confirm small things.

1) Can we use UNICODE string as commands such as "すすむ"
   (means forward)?

Yes, you can. LibreLogo uses the Unicode database of the CPython
distribution to recognize the letters/word boundaries, so I believe, it has
to be work with Japanese, too.

2) Can we check our translation result locally without self-build?
   I mean, can we check our translation by modification several files?

Yes, it is enough to copy the properties file to the LibreLogo directory of
the LibreOffice installation in unicode-escape Unicode encoding.
LibreOffice beta 2 has already contained the (older) Japanese properties
file, eg. under Linux:

$ head /opt/lodev4.0/share/Scripts/python/LibreLogo/
# turtle graphics


If you need any help for the conversion or the testing, please, let me know.

I'm also interesting in the possible special Japanese requirements, eg.
optional usage of the fullwidth square brackets.

Thanks and best regards,

Naruhiko Ogasawara (
