enrico asked me to send you an email with the needed details to get
documentation imported into Rosetta to be translated easily.
Rosetta only supports translate .pot files thus, you need first a way to
get a .pot file from the docbook sources (xml2po from gnome-doc-utils
package is a good way to do it).
After that, create a tarball with this structure:
Where "your_template_to_translate.pot" is the .pot with all the strings
to be translated and es.po, it.po and cy.po are already existing
translations that you want to import also into Rosetta.
If you only have the .pot file is ok.
The tarball should be named as:
In case you have more than one .pot for the same sourcepackage, just add
another directory like the 'po' one with it:
When you have those tarball, send them to me
(carlos.perello at canonical.com) or to Daf (daf at canonical.com) and we will
add them to the automatic import system. If it's bigger than one
megabyte, please, send only a URL where we can download it.
I hope they will appear in Rosetta during next week.
P.S.: Take care, that Rosetta has not been tested yet as a tool to
translate documentation (big chunks of text in one message) so, feel
free to suggest anything that could improve that use case.
P.S.2: Any problem/question about Rosetta should be sent to
rosetta-users at lists.ubuntu.com
