Translation helper scripts offers some scripts created to help team coordinators who want easy way to do some coordinator type operations: add files sent to them by team members automatically, do automatic translation of the whole file tree, get rid of fu

These scripts have been inspired by the excellent "translation-toolkit" project. Some code (for example, in script) has been borrowed from there.

Warning: these scripts are not thoroughly tested in all situations, so before applying these on some files DO MAKE A BACKUP.


Simply copy the scripts to somewhere in your PATH, for example; this might be /usr/bin/ or ~/bin/ . You can use a command "cp ths-* ~/bin/" to do that from the directory with scripts.


Most scripts depend on gettext. depends also on kdiff3 KDE package (you can easily modify the script to use meld, kompare or other graphical diff frontent of your choice).


Run a command without any arguments to see the usage instructions.

- apply a sed script to the whole project (the sed commands have to be supplied in an external file). YOU HAVE TO SUPPLY FULL PATHS HERE!
- compare two translation files using diff, unwrapps first for best comparison. - compare two translation files using kdiff3, unwrapps first for best comparison. - makes all fuzzy strings non-fuzzy in a translation project. - automatically translates project files (may initialize files that have not been started to translate) using a specified compendium. - converts po files to pot (template) files (basically strips all the translation). - takes a bunch of files from a single directory and transfers the translations therein to a translation file tree; may use the new files either as primary, or as secondary translations.
