Translation Validator Tool & Plural Rules

Post by GunChleoc » Fri May 20, 2016 9:44 am

The rules for translating plural forms are documented on: https://wiki.phpbb.com/Plural_Rules

And this tool can help to find bugs in your translations:

Validating Language packages:
  1. Download the attachment:
    phpbb-translation-validator-1.3.9.zip
    (652.4 KiB) Downloaded 37 times
  2. Unzip the file and put the vendor/ folder into the following structure:

    Code: Select all

    3.0/de/language/de/common.php (all files from the package should be in 3.0/de/ )
    3.0/de/styles/prosilver/imageset/de/imageset.cfg
    3.0/en/language/en/common.php (all files from the package should be in 3.0/en/ )
    3.0/en/styles/prosilver/imageset/en/imageset.cfg
    vendor/
    
  3. Open a console/terminal in the parent folder of vendor/
    Windows:
    1. Copy the folder path from your parent folder
    2. Press Windows-key
    3. Type: cmd
    4. Run: cd LINK-TO-THE-FOLDER-FROM-STEP-1.1
  4. List the help of the tool: vendor\bin\PhpbbTranslationValidator.php.bat validate --help
  5. Example to validate the german translation for 3.0:

    Code: Select all

    vendor\bin\PhpbbTranslationValidator.php.bat validate de --phpbb-version=3.0
    If you want to display Notice errors aswell append --display-notices:

    Code: Select all

    vendor\bin\PhpbbTranslationValidator.php.bat validate de --phpbb-version=3.0 --display-notices
    The output should be something like:

    Code: Select all

    E:\Develop\translations\Test>vendor\bin\PhpbbTranslationValidator.php.bat valida
    te de --phpbb-version=3.0
    Running Language Pack Validator on language de.
