Locale::Maketext::Utils::MarkPhrase - explicitly mark a phrase as translatable
use Locale::Maketext::Utils::MarkPhrase; # $result = 'Hello World'; $result = translatable('Hello World');
Let’s say you typically harvest phrases from your code by looking for calls to maketext() or lextext().
Sometimes you need to have a string in code that does not have your locale system in place so you can’t use maketext() or lextext() for that purpose.
If you made fake ones you’d either have untranslated/uncompiled results or the consumer of the result would have to figure out if it’s good or if still needs processing.
Thats ugly and overly complex no matter how you slice it. A simple solution is to have a marker function that parsers can look for that passes the original string to the consumer for normal handling.
That small, simple solution is what this module aims to provide.
The function translatable() is exported when the module is import()ed.
Takes one argument, the string to translate.
Returns the same exact string unmodified.
This is one of the things that Text::Extract::MaketextCallPhrases.
Throws no wnarings or errors of its own.
Locale::Maketext::Utils::MarkPhrase requires no configuration files or environment variables.
No bugs have been reported.
