Thanks, Cheers

Any news on the auto-update? As far as I can see, Transifex does not include the most recent UI changes.

I've just requested to be added to the Indonesian translators team on Transifex.
I've been using XBMC with an Openelec Fusion setup for a few months now. A few days ago I built XBMC 12 on Windows to make some sense of how my HTPC is 'performing' when loading thumbnail images. Smile

Before I even realised that the language files were managed with Transifex, I made a small C# application that lists a few selected languages side by side. It also compiles and runs with monodevelop, albeit a tad slower.
Does Transifex have support for this? I don't see such features on the Tour page.

Comparing three languages at the same makes it easier (for me at least, being totally new to XBMC development) to 'judge' a translation.

Transifex does have such feature (to compare few languages). It isnt very user friendly at least to me it isnt but such functionality is presented.

Just a thought here but seeing as XBMC can't uppercase accent characters couldn't the labels be uppercased in the language file and somehow used for skins?

Thanks.

Have you tested lately? There was a commit a month or so ago that may have remedied that.

No I haven't sorry. I'll check it out, thanks.

EDIT: Just read the rest of the commit and see it got fixed.

Am I missing something, or the official Transifex project still indeed has language files that are at least 0.5 year old, without recent GUI updates?

Didn't want to open a new thread for this, but I think something went wrong when you uploaded the language file for plugin-video-bliptv to Transifex today. The strings are the same as in plugin-video-vimeo.

Ah, the copy-paste monster in my sync project file

Sorry for this problem! I already corrected it!

Big thanks for reporting this !

Cheers, Attila

Can you adjust your script that it doesn't overwrite the English files?

I noticed a dev had problems after he updated his language files and it overwrote his English files which contained new strings so he had to revert English to get them back.

There are options in my langdload tool to skip downloading the English file or changelog.txt.
Just check the readme: https://github.com/xbmc/translations/tre...-langdload

Btw: The English file from our repo contains cleans and cosmetic changes. Sometimes even syntax problems occur which is corrected. So it is advised to sometimes compare the local and the translations repo file.

Thanks, cheers

Hi,

You link doesn't seem to work. Actually I wanted to check whether there is any language option provided for Tamil translators.

Thanks!

Are you planning on creating a separate project on Transifix now that Gotham is branched for release?

ex. https://www.transifex.net/projects/p/XBMC-Main-Gotham/

Maybe also post a news post om http://xbmc.org main page too to encourage new translators?
