NAME


debconf-getlang - extract a language from a templates file

SYNOPSIS


debconf-getlang lang master [translation]
debconf-getlang --stats master translation [...]

DESCRIPTION


Note: This utility is deprecated; you should switch to using the po-debconf package.

This program helps make and manage translations of debconf templates. There are basically
three situations in which this program might be called:

A translation is just being started.
You want to provide the translator with a file they can work on that has the English
fields from your templates file, plus blank Field-ll fields for the target language
that they can fill in.

To do this, run the program with first parameter being the code for the language that
is being translated to, and the second parameter being the filename of the English
templates file.

A translation is well under way.
You have changed some English text, or added more items to your templates file, and
you want to send the translators a file with the English text plus their current
translations (or you are the translator, and you want to generate such a file for your
own use).

To accomplish this, run the program with the first parameter being the the code for
the language that is being translated to, the second parameter being the filename of
the master English templates file, and the third parameter being the filename of the
current translated file.

When run this way, the program is smart enough to notice fuzzy translations. For
example a fuzzy Description will be output as Description-<lang>-fuzzy, and a new,
blank Description-<lang> will be added. Translators should remove the -fuzzy fields
as they correct the fuzzy translations.

Checking the status of a translation
To check the status of a translation, use the --status flag, and pass the english
template file as the first parameter, and all the other translated templates after
that. It will output statistics for each of them. For example:

debconf-getlang --stats debian/templates debian/templates.*

NOTE


Note that the text in the generated templates may be word-wrapped by debconf.
