I run gimp in swedish and the translation is very good. The help files however are mostly blank pages. I have to quit and start gimp in english in order to get any help.
Of course this problem can be solved by deleting the swedish documentation and then I assume I would get the english one. But it's not the best solution. Also, even if there had been a more complete translation, how do I know if that is a translation of the latest english version? Being able to select language at run time would be helpful. gettext() works well because the translation is only used when the original text is as it was when it was translated. Maybe one could make something similar with the doc, like a md5sum of the help page. If the checksum does not match the one stored with the translation then the english original help is used (or some other language that the user prefer, just like it works with gettext). -- /Dennis Björklund _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
