Great, thanks, I've been wanting to ask for translations as
gnome-disk-utility will be used by GVfs in the GNOME 2.28 release (we
are using in Fedora 11 already); in particular strings for drives,
volumes and mounts will come from gnome-disk-utility.
Now, gnome-disk-utility actually has quite a lot of strings marked for
translation and I wanted to talk to you guys about that.
These are names and descriptions of ATA SMART attributes; not sure
we can't get around to not translating them; they appear in the
UI for inspecting a hard disk, e.g.
(note, the UI is not very pretty right now.. but I do expect us to
list all attributes including localized names and descriptions)
All the various MS-DOS partition types (and there is a lot of these)
are marked for translation. For example
- Hidden FAT16 <32M (0x14)
- PartitionMagic (0x3c)
Maybe we don't really want this, I mean these are more names than
anything so maybe we it shouldn't be marked for translation. Or
maybe translators can just decide not to translate it. Maybe I
can just add Translator: comments for that. Thoughts?
Thanks for any insights.
