make_strings - tool to build lists of localizable strings from Objective-C files


make_strings [--help] [--verbose] [--aggresive-import] [--aggressive-match] [--aggressive-
remove] [-L languages] files.[hmc...]


make_strings parses Objective-C files and builds lists of localizable strings. It then
creates new .strings files or merges the strings with existing .strings files. It's
fairly intelligent when matching old and new strings, and produces .strings files that are
(supposed to be) easy for a translator to work with.

make_strings accepts the following options:


--help Prints a short list of available options.

Prints additional information while processing.

-L languages
Specify which languages to process. Multuple -L options are accepted, or multiple
languages defined in one -L flag.

Activates --aggresive-match and automatically removes "dummy" entries that are
added by importing .strings files which were not created by make_strings program.
This option is suitable when make_strings is run for the first time and there is an
existing .strings file which contains a fairly accurate translation.

This option will make make_strings assume that matching keys should have matching
translations. This can save lots of work, but it increases the risk of erroneous

Removes obsolete strings/keys.
