Dear VUE translators,

Translation files for VUE 3.0 are now available. If you are a translator for an existing VUE language, you will find an updated version of the language file under the VUE Users Forum subject for that language. You should begin from that file, which includes all the translations already provided. When you edit the file you will find new properties at the bottom of the file following the comment that looks like this:

##############################
# New properties for VUE 3.0 #
##############################

The new properties are all in English, awaiting your translation.

There are also 77 properties whose values (ie, the part to the right of the = sign) have changed. They appear in the list attached to this message. You will need to search for these properties in the language file and update their translation to match their new value.

You may also notice that some properties have been deleted and that some properties' names (ie, the part to the left of the = sign) have changed; these changes do not require any action on your part and can be ignored.

When you're done with your work, please post the file back to the forum under the topic for its language.

If you are a translator for a language that's new to VUE, you should begin with the English language version, which is posted in the VUE Users Forum subject "VUE Translation - English file". Make sure to get the latest version for VUE 3.0, not the original version for VUE 2.0. There are also several messages under that subject that explain how to modify the language file. Briefly:

1. Do not modify any line beginning with the character #. These are comments and should be left in English.
2. Translate only the part of a line to the RIGHT of the = sign; the part to the left of the = sign is the property name and must not be changed.
3. Do not modify html tags like <b>, </b> or <br>.
4. %s, %d, and {0} are placeholders for VUE to insert values and should not be modified.

There are several free text editors that you can use. JEdit is available for both Windows and Macintosh OS X from www.jedit.org. Windows users can also use MS Word, and Mocintosh users can use TextWrangler, available from www.barebones.com/products/TextWrangler. Please save your files in utf-8 format.

Please return your work to us by posting it on the VUE Users Forum under the subject for your language.

Thank you so much for your work on VUE 2.0 and we look forward to your contributions to VUE 3.0. It's been fun working with you and we've really enjoyed seeing VUE in ten languages so far!

Regards,
Brian Goodmon

To repeat, files for languages previously translated for VUE 2.0 can be found under the VUE Users Forum subject for each language. If you are beginning a new translation (other than Spanish, Hungarian, Bulgarian, French, German, Chinese, Portuguese, Greek or Russian), look under the subject for English.

Thanks!

JEdit is a free editor that you can download from www.jedit.org. I've tried it on both Mac and Windows and it works great as an editor for our UTF-8 format language files.

To edit a utf-8 file in JEdit:

1. launch JEdit
2. use the "File/Open" menu command and dialog to open the file
3. use the "File/Reload with Encoding/More/More/More/UTF-8" menu command to tell JEdit that it's a utf-8 file.

When you're done editing, use the "File/Save" menu command to save the file (there's not an extra step for saving as there is for opening).

Thanks everybody for your work. We have the 3.0 translations back in French, Bulgarian, Portuguese, Greek, Chinese, and Italian. German, Russian, Hungarian, and Slovak translations are in progress.

We have one last translation task for VUE 3.0. We've added 17 properties and changed 4 properties since the translation files were posted. These properties need to be translated too. I've attached an English version to this posting that tells you what to do. Please download the file, edit it to add your translation, and post it back to the forum under the subject for your language.

We built our beta version yesterday, so there should be no more changes. The final version of VUE 3.0 is expected to ship on January 6th, 2010, three weeks from today. The finish line is in sight!

Thanks again to all of you for your giant contribution to VUE 3.0! Because of your efforts we can offer VUE in eleven languages (so far). We really appreciate your work.

Regards,
Brian

We've continued to fix bugs during our beta test period and since the last post we've added five new properties and changed three properties. I've attached a file with those new and changed properties; could you please translate them and post them back to your individual language topics in the forum?

Thanks again! We're getting very very close to being finished.
