This page for random issues related to Gnome translation


The formate of translators_credits field is different from file to file, this is my proposal to unify it.

فريق عربآيز للترجمة https://www.arabeyes.org :\n
اسم المترجم\t<translator@foo.org>\n
مترجم آخر\t<another_one@foobar.org>

The "\t" (tap character) will add a "tap" after translators name, which will help aligning e-mails together to make it look better. The "\n" is (new line character) necessary to start new lines.

Add new translator to the end of the list.

Translators names in Arabic only, the English is not necessary.

Date and Time translation

gnome uses g-date-time-format to localize date and time. It uses special escape modifiers to translate date and time. Below you can find a table for conversion that you should use when translating to Arabic. But remember that some other placement changes and comma translation have to be made, i.e. from "%a %b %e, %l:%M:%S %p" to "%A، %Oe %Ob، %Ol:%OM:%OS %p".
