Hello, members of the Fedora internationalization community!
As I expect most of you are aware, Fedora has been heavily driving forwards with a new
technology: Modularity. As part of this initiative, I have set up a new translation
project on fedora.zanata.org
that will contain all of the summary, description and profile
descriptions for every module available in each Fedora branch (starting with Fedora 28).
These strings will be used by end-users who are trying to determine what they need to
install on their systems, so it would be highly desirable to get them translated and made
The translations will be automatically consumed from Zanata and added to the repository
metadata for the relevant Fedora releases, so they are not necessarily bound to the usual
translation deadline; they can come in at any future nightly repository compose.
The new translation project can be found at
Currently, the source strings are generated manually. I have written a simple tool
that will automatically extract the translatable strings from all modules tagged for a
particular Fedora release and upload them to Zanata. I would very much like to know if
there is a good system that I could tie into in order to have this extraction and upload
done periodically (nightly).
If there's anything I can do to help this get started, please let me or Langdon White
(langdon(a)redhat.com) know and we'll do our best to assist.
