WTP PseudoTranslation Test Results R320 04292010
Pseudo Translation Test Results
This is an informal effort to check that strings are properly externalized.
Please document your projects result for pseudo translation test.
The first step is for Project Leads to update the Helios map files, as described on cross project list.
Then, once a babel build is available, use the pseudo translation packages in a smoke test.
Please document with a "checkmark" when done, and list bugs open as a result of the testing or, at least, a representative sample of the bugs. You should also note label of the build(s) you used.
- These are some rough, preliminary, approximate instructions, from eclipse-dev list: [if anyone discovers better ones, please update here]
The answer to the discussion topic is that pseudo-translations of participating projects are produced every night by the Babel project builds. They are available from the Babel project downloads page. Simply unzip the pseudo-translation pack into your dropins folder and startup with the -nl switch. 1) Go to http://www.eclipse.org/babel/downloads.php 2) Select "Developer and Nightly Builds" at the bottom 3) Select "babel_language_packs" 4) Pick a recent nightly build 5) Pick "Helios", or if you don't see it pick "Galileo" [See NOTE] 6) Scroll to the bottom to find the "Pseudo Translation" section 7) Select the en_AA_*.zip file for your specific project. For example, Source Editing requires BabelLanguagePack-webtools.sourceediting-en_AA_*.zip. Keep in mind that classes in the Platform and even WTP Common use a separate zip than your own, so only the parts of the UI with language packs installed will be translated. 8) Launch the Eclipse executable and force it to use the NL pack with "-nl en_AA". NOTE: As of today (April 14, 2010), the Galileo stream of the babel build was referring to our map files in HEAD. I have fixed this, so hopefully in the next build you will see a "Helios" build show up. Until then, since the "Galileo" build is referring to our HEAD stream it should work for you.
