Hey everyone.

I am currently working on the European Portuguese pt_PT translation for Inkscape, but given the outdated and messy state of the current translation I decided to start from scratch. I started very recently and make slow progress as time allows. I'm currently under 2% completion, it will never be complete in time for 0.92 release, not even on par with the existing progress so for pt_PT.


For that reason I'd say either go with the current one as previous releases or totally exclude it from 0.92. There always pt_BR as fallback which seems to be in a better state. As general rule, I'd say incomplete/outdated translation is better than no translation at all, so I'd include anything that has any modest progress and it may even encourage some contributions. What do you Think?


One other offtopic nitpicking: Statistics came through just fine, but why are languages with 0% progress shown with a full green progress bar? Is this a glitch? Those bars seem to be drawn by the system, in this case Windows 7 for me, so maybe people in Linux/Mac will see it differently. It's the same on the website so it's not just an attachment thing.


Best Regards, Duarte

Hi all,

I'm in the progress of updating the Windows installer for 0.92 release and asked myself which languages should be included in the final package? Are there some guidelines or do we simply include all of them, even if they're mostly outdated? How was this handled in the past?

Since languages seem to be hardcoded in "src/inkscape-preferences.cpp" we probably can not just drop those languages during packaging. Otherwise the language would still be offered as a choice, even if it's not present (which is is also an issue if the user decides not to install translations during installation).

FYI current language statistics are attached (I hope it get's through), otherwise a copy is available from [1].

Best Regards,
Eduard
