Looks good :)

Would you consider releasing the code at some point?

I'm also interesting (if your tool is open source), thanks a lot!

For now, just enjoy the tool as a web service to help you with your phpBB translations :) Any feedback would be appreciated ;)

Waw.
One new idea - try to format boxes which can be edited as textareas, no inputs. You can change it into textarea without any visual changes, but FF could check spelling, what is the biggest problem while translating (at least for me)...

It's currently like this:

Code: Select all

			if (strlen($value) < 192) {
				echo "<input ...
			} else {
				echo "<textarea ...
			}
I'll think about it :)

Isn't this the same as the default (pretty hidden) feature in phpBB3?

ACP > System > Language packs
In the column Name click on the language pack, and it will show the missing language variables.

Or is it comparing your custom changes?

Wasted? No, I think it is very helpful for us, translators, to use a tool like this without to go through a phpBB board. Visual improvement (with CSS for example) would be appreciated.

I would not use this tool because I have my habits (I use Araxis Merge to compare), but there is no doubt: this tool can be of great help.

Surely this tool is useful for us, translators. Who do not translate, cannot know how is it useful :)

Great tool! I just updated one language with it. Much better than everything I've seen before.
