NAME ^

App::I18N - I18N utility.

DESCRIPTION ^

I18N management utility, provides an command-line interface to parse / translate / update mo file i18n messages.

App::I18N borrows some good stuff from Jifty::I18N and Jifty::Script::Po and tries to provide a general po management script for all frameworks | applications.

USAGE ^

Basic flow

Basic po file manipulation:

parse strings from `lib` path:

    $ cd app
    $ po parse lib

this will generate:

    po/app.pot

please modify the CHARSET in po/app.pot.

    ... modify CHARSET ...

create new language file (po file):

    po lang en
    po lang fr
    po lang ja
    po lang zh_TW

this generates:

    po/en.po
    po/fr.po
    po/ja.po
    po/zh_TW.po

    ... do translation here

when you added more message in your application. you might need to update po messages, but you dont have to delete/recreate these po files, you can just parse your messages again all of your translations will be kept. eg:

    $ po parse lib

    ... do translation again ...

### Generate locale and mo file for php-gettext or anyother gettext i18n app:

parse strings from `.` path and use --locale (locale directory structure):

    $ cd app
    $ po parse --locale .

this will generate:

    po/app.pot

please modify the CHARSET in po/app.pot.

    ... modify CHARSET ...

create new language file (po file and mo file) in locale directory structure:

    $ po lang  --locale en
    $ po lang  --locale zh_TW

this will generate:

    po/en/LC_MESSAGES/app.po
    po/en/LC_MESSAGES/app.mo
    po/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/app.po
    po/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/app.mo

(you can use --podir option to generate those stuff to other directory)

    ... do translation here ...

if you use mo file , you might need to update mo file.

    $ po update --locale

eg:

    -project (master) % po update --mo --podir locale
        Updating locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/project.po
        Updating locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/project.mo
        9 translated messages, 53 untranslated messages.

Note that if you have `po` or `locale` directory exists, then it will be the default po directory.

And `locale` directory will enable `--locale` option.

## Show Translation Status

    $ po status

    Translation Status:
        en_US: [                                                  ]  0% (0/8) 
        zh_TW: [======                                            ] 12% (1/8) 

Auto Translation

Auto translate via Google Translate REST API:

Default backend is google translate REST API, This will translate zh\_TW.po file and translate msgid (en\_US) to msgstr (zh\_TW):

    $ po auto zh_TW --from en_US

    $ po auto zh_CN --from en_US --to zh_CN

    $ po auto zh_CN --from en_US --overwrite --prompt

    $ po auto --backend google-rest --from en\_US --to zh\_TW
