Translation Utility to Create Pseudo Translations of PO Files

description

download

specs

potpie is a CLI wrapper around the Psuedo Translations available from Transifex pseudo translations. The available types are brackets, unicode, planguage, extend, and mixed.

Installation

To install requests, simply:

 pip install potpie

Or, if you absolutely must:

 easy_install potpie

But, you really shouldn't do that.

Usage

To create a pseudo translated po file, simply:

 potpie [--type] infile outfile

An example for a Django project might be:

 potpie locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/django.po locale/xx_pseudo/LC_MESSAGES/django.po

The default type is mixed, if you wish to use another type simplify specify it as an option like:

 potpie --type brackets locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/django.po locale/xx_pseudo/LC_MESSAGES/django.po

Types

Brackets
 Adds square brackets around the string (e.g. [translated text])
Unicode
 Converts all characters into look alike unicode characters
PLanguage

 Increases the length of a string by around 30-50% by replacing the vowels with unicode chars that look alike.

 This is based on a P-language, which is a simple vowel-extending language.
Extend:
 Increases the length of a string by around 20-700% by appending special chars (Greek, Chinese, etc) to the end of the string.
Mixed:
 Combines Extend, Unicode and Brackets into one Type.
