Translate Ren'Py Launcher

#1 Post by Majirefy » Thu May 01, 2014 10:19 am

Good day everyone.
When I'm trying to introduce Ren'Py to them, some of my pals in China feel it will be better for the launcher with Chinese translation.
So I'm willing to help for this, and I find Ren'Py is not very popular in China.
I believe Ren'Py is a very impressive tools for AVG making, and there are improvements of some ancient tools like KiriKiri or NScripter.
Some is there any ways to tranlate the launcher?
And I see there are Japanese sites and documents for Ren'Py, too. If possible, I'd like to help tranlate for Chinese(Simplfied).
Is there any rules for translation?

Thanks~~~ :lol:

I welcome people who want to translate Ren'Py.

To translate the Ren'Py launcher, you want to open the launcher as a project. To do that go into preferences, and choose "Open launcher project". You can then click the "Generate Translations" button to generate a translation for your language.

To translate a template, go into the templates directory, and copy "english" to "chinese". Then go to the launcher preferences, check "Show templates", and go back to the front page. You'll see the various templates. Choose your language template, "Generate Translations", and generate for the None language, which is what Ren'Py uses by default.

When done, send it to me, ideally via a git pull request.

There aren't many rules for translations - do a good job, I guess, and try to keep up with Ren'Py development. Especially, keep an eye out for pre-releases, and update the translation when a new pre-release comes out. I don't hold up releases for translations, but a significant update will merit a bugfix release.

For Chinese in specific, I think we probably want to have "simplified_chinese" and "traditional_chinese" languages - right? Those would be different translations, and not just a font change. I'm not super familiar as to how that works.

The documentation is more complex - there's a project to translate it on launchpad, here:

https://launchpad.net/renpy-doc

I don't actually know how to use it, however.

By the way, I updated the German translation but I still don't know how to make a git pull request ^^

If you can email me a zip with the files, that would work too.

Okay, I just sent you a PM with a link to the file, because I don't have your email address.

Well, sounds good.
I'd like to translate that and keep an eyes on Simplified and Traditonal Chinese.
First for Launcher, I suppose.

I'm working on the Chinese translation of documentation. It's about 30% done, but I don't know when I'm going to finish it.

Is it OK to send all the translated docs by email to you? I find it difficult to use that website, too.

I wrote a documentation for documentation translators.
https://github.com/vbkaisetsu/renpy/blo ... lators.rst

I'm a maintainer of renpy-doc project in Launchpad to translate documentation.
When I upload *.pot files to Launchpad, Translation page of LP is updated:
https://translations.launchpad.net/renpy-doc

If the translation is finished, we can use the following command to download *.po files:

Code: Select all

$ bzr branch lp:~vbkaisetsu/renpy-doc/renpy-doc-translation
(Launchpad completely uses bzr (Bazaar) command to manage source code)
