Description (last modified by diver)

Localization has come a long way since alpha 2. However, there are still a few things missing. I've collected open tickets concerning localization (bugs and enhancements). Feel free to add missing tickets - or to close this tracking ticket if you think it's not needed.

The FontDemo's "System name" translation is still missing.

comment:11 by dsjonny, 8 years ago

The mailbox's menu's on the Deskbar's self has missing translations: the "Open Drafts", "Open Inbox Folder" and the "Open Mail Folder". Please correct it.

FontDemo: added a patch for system name correction. Tested, works fine (maybe it need to recreate the catalogs).

comment:15 by humdinger, 8 years ago

Applied patch to FontDemo Jamfile with hrev45139. Thanks!

comment:16 by mmadia, 8 years ago

patch: 10

comment:17 by diver, 7 months ago

I think this one can be closed now as most of the bugs are fixed.

comment:18 by diver, 3 months ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

Most of the tickets here are fixed, the rest (and new ones) can be found using localization keyword.

comment:19 by nielx, 3 days ago

Milestone: R1R1/beta3

Assign fix to milestone:R1/beta3, as it looks like this fix will be part of that release.

As we started with the previous beta, we would like to use the Milestone field for fixed tickets to log from which release the improvement will be out. Therefore it is very much appreciated to assign the milestone when closing a ticket as fixed.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
