SYNOPSIS


i18nspector [--language lang] [--unpack-deb] file [file …]

OPTIONS


-l lang, --language lang
Assume this language. lang should be a 2- or 3-letter ISO 639 language code,
possibly followed by underscore and a 2-letter ISO 3166 territory code.

--unpack-deb
Allow unpacking Debian (binary or source) packages.

-h, --help
Show the help message and exit.

--version
Show the program's version number and exit.

DESCRIPTION


i18nspector is a tool for checking translation templates (POT), message catalogues (PO)
and compiled message catalogues (MO) files for common problems. These files are used by
the GNU gettext translation functions and tools in many different development
environments.

The following format is used for all the reported problems:

code: file: tag [extra]

where:

· code is a letter indicating type of the message: E (error), W (warning), I (informative
message), or P (pedantic message);

· tag is a name of the problem that was discovered;

· extra can contain additional information about the problem.

TAGS


ancient-date
The date refers to the time before the first GNU gettext release. As such, it's extremely
unlikely to be correct.

c-format-string-argument-type-mismatch
There's a type mismatch between a C format argument in msgid and the corresponding format

C format argument in msgstr[N] and corresponding msgid or msgid_plural.

c-format-string-missing-arguments
A C format string for msgid consumes fewer arguments than msgid_plural; or msgstr consumes
fewer arguments than msgid; or msgstr[N] consumes fewer arguments than corresponding msgid
or msgid_plural.

Note that in some languages, the commonly used Plural-Forms expression evaluates to the
same value for n=1 and n=21, n=31, and so on. Take this Serbian translation for example:

Plural-Forms: nplurals=3; plural=n%10==1 && n%100!=11 ? 0 : n%10>=2 && n%10<=4 && (n%100<10 || n%100>=20) ? 1 : 2;
...
msgid "one byte"
msgid_plural "%d bytes"
msgstr[0] "%d bajt"
msgstr[1] "%d bajta"
msgstr[2] "%d bajtova"

Here %d should not be replaced with the spelled-out form jedan. Either %d should be kept,
or the Plural-Forms expression should be amended, so that there is a special case for n=1:

Plural-Forms: nplurals=4; plural=n==1 ? 3 : n%10==1 && n%100!=11 ? 0 : n%10>=2 && n%10<=4 && (n%100<10 || n%100>=20) ? 1 : 2
...
msgid "one byte"
msgid_plural "%d bytes"
msgstr[0] "%d bajt"
msgstr[1] "%d bajta"
msgstr[2] "%d bajtova"

c-format-string-non-portable-conversion
A C format string uses a conversion specified or length modifier, for which a more

of L or q.

· For floating-point conversions (%a, %A, %e, %E, %f, %F, %g, and %G), don't use the l
length modifier.

qt-plural-format-mistaken-for-c-format
A c-format flag is associated with the message, but qt-plural-format should be used
instead.

The only C format directive that the message uses is %n. It is very atypical to use it
alone in a C format string.

range-flag-without-plural-string
A range: flag is associated with a message that doesn't have plural string. range: flags
only make sense for translations involving plural forms.

redundant-message-flag
A flag associated with one of the messages is redundant, because it's implied by another
flag.

stray-header-line
The header contains a line that does not belong to any header field. Note that
RFC-822-style folding of long headers is not supported.

Severity, certainty:
important, certain

stray-previous-msgid
The message entry contains annotations about previous untranslated string (#| msgid ...),
even though the message is not marked as fuzzy. These annotations are only useful for
fuzzy messages, and should be removed when unfuzzying.

syntax-error-in-plural-forms
Value of the Plural-Forms header field could not be parsed. It should be in the form
nplurals=n; plural=expression.

Severity, certainty:
serious, possible

syntax-error-in-po-file
This file couldn't be parsed a PO file. In some rare cases this is due to incorrect or
missing encoding declaration.

Severity, certainty:
serious, possible

syntax-error-in-unused-plural-forms
Value of the Plural-Forms header field could not be parsed. (But there are no translated
messages which use plural forms.) It should be in the form nplurals=n; plural=expression.

Severity, certainty:
important, possible

trailing-junk-in-plural-forms
The Plural-Forms header field contains unexpected text after the plural expression.

GNU gettext runtime ignores such trailing junk, but other header parsers might be less
liberal in what they accept.

Severity, certainty:

translation-in-template
The PO template file contains a translated message.

unable-to-determine-language
i18nspector was unable to determine language of this file. Absence of this information
will prevent it from performing further checks.

unexpected-flag-for-header-entry
An unexpected flag is associated with the header entry. The only flag that makes sense
for the header entry is fuzzy.

unknown-encoding
This file declares an encoding that couldn't be recognized by i18nspector. It might be a
typo. Absence of encoding information will prevent i18nspector from performing further
checks.

unknown-file-type
File format of this file couldn't be recognized. It might be a bug in i18nspector.

Severity, certainty:

unknown-header-field
The header field name is unknown to i18nspector. It might be a typo or a capitalization
error (header field names are case-sensitive).

unknown-poedit-language
Language declared in X-Poedit-Language couldn't be recognized. It might be a bug in
i18nspector.

Severity, certainty:

unrepresentable-characters
The declared encoding cannot represent all characters commonly used in this language.
This is a strong indication that the declared encoding is incorrect.

Severity, certainty:
serious, possible

unusual-character-in-header-entry
The header entry contains an unusual character. This is usually an indication of an
encoding problem, such as:

· using ISO 2022 escape sequences, or

· using UTF-8 despite declaring an 8-bit encoding.
