Subject: [Freeciv-i18n] Finnish translation to upload to trunk & stables
To: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
By the way, could we get an up-to-date freeciv.pot somewhere on the wiki
or in the svn po directory again? One less than a month old would be ok,
downloading the entire source is just rather a waste of sever bandwidth
and random translation update time. ;) I think we maybe used to have
translation status somewhere, or maybe that was just the Launchpad
Ubuntu translation which doesn't seem to be there anymore. (The Freeciv
I've gotten from Ubuntu does have some vaguely unfamiliar translations
that might originate from the Launchpad translation project though.)
I logged some things that might want internationalization bugs filed on
them below, feel free to do what you want with them. There seems to be a
general problem with starting sentences in the middle of a msgstr with a
%s that English wants to have capitalized (e.g. "English") and Finnish
and other languages want to have in non-caps in any mid-sentence
position ("englantilaisten"). We need some kind of capitalize-string
parameter for %ss in gettext! (%^s or something.)

msgid "( with "
msgid " )"
Don't split strings like this, and provide more context!
I guess this is like "Press Enter". Shouldn't it be Press %s? A
translator comment to not confuse this with the press would be nice.
msgid "Form Traderoute with %s ( %d R&G + %d trade ) (R)"
R&G, (R)? Translator comments.
msgid "Cut Down to"
"We have %d of %s\n"
"(total value is : %d)\n"
"We can sell %d of them for %d gold."
%d of what? Translator comment.
msgid "%s's SpaceShip"
If internationalizers find themselves using 's genetives (and they do,
quite a bit), it means we need a real separate genetive in rulesets.
Most languages can't use "'s" for that meaning.
msgid "%d gold per turn"
Should have plural handling. wldlg.c also has a series of %s%d%s%d%ss
which have no explanation. Can't really translate them to anything else
than whatever the original is with this information.
#: data/civ1/game.ruleset:98 data/civ2/game.ruleset:98
msgid "Team 0"
up to Team 31... Why, oh why? (Getting all these obsoleted eventually is
going to be almost as depressing as getting 32 messages unfuzzed by
putting numbers into these strings.)
