1.91.5 English Translation / List of new strings

Post by helmut » Tue Oct 02, 2007 8:54 pm

Probably on coming Thursday Pierre will release XnView 1.91.5 with some minor enhancements and changes.

In XnView 1.91.5 there will be new strings:

Code: Select all

#define TXT_NviewMenu_Convert_Colors	         "Convert to &Colours..."
#define TXT_NviewMenu_Saved_Selection          "Saved selection\tC"
#define TXT_NviewMenu_Custom_Selection         "Custom selection..."

#define TXT_Option_Go_Next_Subfolder_Auto      "Go to the next subfolder (fullscreen)"

#define TXT_Adjust_Keep_Values       "Keep values for next time"
#define TXT_String_Cache_Size        "[Cache size: %s %s]"
#define TXT_String_Quick_Copy        "Are you sure you want to Copy this file to <%s>?" 
#define TXT_String_Quick_Move        "Are you sure you want to Move this file to <%s>?" 

#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_GPS    "EXIF - GPS"

#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_Latitude_Ref     "Latitude Ref."
#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_Latitude         "Latitude"
#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_Longitude_Ref    "Longitude Ref."
#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_Longitude        "Longitude"
#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_Haltitude_Ref    "Altitude Ref."
#define TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_Haltitude        "Altitude"

#define TXT_Custom_Selection                   "Custom selection"
#define TXT_Pan_Mosaic                         "Mosaic"
#define TXT_Pan_Nb_Thumb_Row                   "Number of thumbs per row"
#define TXT_Pan_Randomly_Position              "Randomly position:"

#define TXT_Conv_Colors                        "Colours:"
#define TXT_Conv_Dithering                     "Dithering:"

#define TXT_Print_Rotate                       "Automatically rotate the picture"

I propose some changes:

Go to the next subfolder (fullscreen)
--> Go to next subfolder (fullscreen)

Are you sure you want to Copy this file to <%s>?
--> Do you want to copy this file to <%s>?

Are you sure you want to Move this file to <%s>?
--> Do you want to move this file to <%s>?

Number of thumbs per row
--> Thumbs per row

Randomly position:
--> Random position

Automatically rotate the picture
--> Rotate picture automatically

What do other people think? Especially I'd be interested in native speaker's opions.

Helmut, can I just copy the strings to the existing translation file? If yes, to which of the two? Stringsv.h or Xnviews.h?

The above text strings have a different formatting than Pierre has (Spaces instead of tabs). So I think you should wait till Pierre sends you the English text file with new strings and then translate it. Right, Pierre?

The translated texts should be sent as attached text file otherwise the Umlauts and accents might get lost.

Some hints for other translators:

- TXT_NviewMenu_Convert_Colors
This string is found in menu "Image". Please note the elipsis "...", it is needed because a dialog is opened when choosing the menu item.

- TXT_TemplateMenu_EXIF_ ...
All the new EXIF stuff is related to GPS and geographical coordinates (you guessed it). So the "normal" translations for "Longitude" and "Latitude" apply. A valid value for longitude would be "N 48° 36′ 0.00000″ ".
Longitude and Latitude contain the value, "Longitude Ref" and "Latitude Ref" contain the reference information (North/South or East/West, respectively).

- TXT_NviewMenu_Custom_Selection
"Custom selection.." can be found in menu "Edit > Set selection size >". Here, also the elipsis "..." should be used.

- TXT_Pan_Mosaic, TXT_Pan_Nb_Thumb_Row, and TXT_Pan_Randomly_Position
These strings can be found in "Create > Strip of images...".
The string "TXT_Pan_Nb_Thumb_Row" is very much related to the existing string TXT_Thumb_Number_Columns. Similiar or same translation should be used.

- TXT_Conv_Dithering
For "Dithering:" the values "None", "Floyd Steinberg", and "Bayer" can be choosen. Dithering is well explained in Wikipedia, section "[edit] Digital photography and image processing". Translating "Dithering" might be hard.

Hope this helps...

Ellipsis is one character

Post by Clo » Wed Oct 03, 2007 9:39 pm

• Hi !

• Just a friendly remark :
Please note the elipsis "...",
- That you wrote is not an ellipsis, but three dots. A real ellipsis is a single character #133 =
and saves 2 characters each, that is not negligible in a very long text¦menus… (ellipsis here) ;)
- It's supported now with the font stated in the language-libraries.
- Especially in French (but not only), the typographical rules impose the true ellipsis, used in the traditional printing jobs too…
Just my 0,05 €…

In the German version of XnView there's a menu item "File > Print all tabs" (English!) in image view mode. Did I miss something?
