is there anyone who objects using xml2po for the tutorial
for the process.
With xml2po, translators would get regular po files to translate,
with all the positive effects (no manual looking for string changes;
more dedicated tools than for Docbook; familiarity of amny
translators with the format; translator credits for free (even
though we don't pull them yet for the About box); strings from
included images are in the same file; the Gnome people are using it;
and probably some more).
I am using xml2po for the German translation since pre-0.45, and it
worked quite well so far. I have started automating the conversion
process to HTML/SVG (to the then intermediate Docbook XML) in SVN.
So if there are no valid objections overriding the plusses, I will
soon start converting all translated Docbook XML files to the po
format. Please submit any translated XML files that are not yet in
I think now is a good time to tackle that process, considering that
0.46 is probably a while but not too far away, and there are quite
some efforts going into tutorials recently (thanks Ryan :).
PS: I'm cmarqu on IRC.
on Inkscape.org, some really revolutionary new features are introduced by
bryce (sept 1). Alas, this statemaent lacks a German translation. For an
educational Project, I did a coarse translation, cf.

Well, you see --- I for my part prefer dealing with fuzzy status of
messages instead of pure XML diffs, especially when you have mulitple
source files, but that's just IMO :)
What I'm more interested in right now is whether we split content into
chapters, since we still will be able to use PO, as Colin says.
