KDE Booklet

Javier Llorente-2
Hi list-mates,

Some people at KDE (upstream) are almost done writing the official KDE
Booklet. I have asked one of the authors what format they are using and he
replied InDesign. Well, how could .po files be generated for an easier
translation? I have never used InDesign.
He also asked for alternatives. Luiz (elchevive) told me that Thomas (toms)
recommended him http://www.syntext.com/products/serna-free/ (a free xml
editor) a long time ago.

Thanks,

From InDesign or generally? This is usually a topic were Karl is the better
expert. From what I know, it's usually done with gettext utilities.

I'm not familiar with InDesign.

To convert .xml to .po (what we do with the openSUSE Release Notes), we
use xml2po, which seems to be a stand-alone package; it was part of
gnome-doc-tooos, IIRC.

Hi,

Just for information:

There is 2 similar packages which can convert xml to po, the one
mentioned by Karl, and another called xml2pot which resides in
kde4-l10n-devel

There is also some converters for po format in package
translate-toolkit
(http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/toolkit/index#converters) but
noone which can convert directly InDesign to .po

http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/toolkit/index#converters


Maybe the file Javier is talking about is
http://community.kde.org/File:Kde_booklet.pdf but I'm not sure.

Regards,

Luiz

That's right. I think that isn't the latest version though.

@Thomas: btw, maybe the doc team could collaborate with the KDE Booklet people
;-)

Thanks for your responses, Thomas, Karl and Luiz!
