Orientação da Documentação

Este manual tem como objectivo ajudar o tradutor. Primeiro será explicado tecnicamente como é o processo geral de tradução . Mais tarde a tradução é explicada de um documento rst Inglês actual, que será traduzido para Holandês. Finalmente será dado um <translation_summary>`_.

Embora essas orientações se concentrem na documentação QCIS, os métodos e as regras mencionadas abaixo também são utilizadas para tradução de aplicações QGIS e sites da internet.

Processo de tradução

Para criar documentação first são gerados documentos .rst. A transcrição predefinida cria ficheiros de tradução designados por .po, ficheiros para a língua inglesa na pasta: ficheiro: /QGIS-Documentation/i18n/en.

Estes “originais” são copiados pelo programa para as pastas i18n para os outros idiomas.

The sentences in the .po files need to be translated from english to the language with a translation tool editor.

When you want to contribute, first get a .po file and add translations for the sentences in the .po file. When you are finished the .po file is placed back in the right place and during the next build the build script now creates .mo files next to the .po files. These .mo files are actually used by the script to create translated output.

When afterwards an rst document is updated a new .po file is created in the english part. The contents of this new file will be merged with already existing .po files for each language. This means that when a new line is added to an rst document that was already translated, only the new/updated sentences are added in the translated .po file and needs to be translated. The amount of work for updating translations for next versions of QGIS should be relative small.

Two different tools are currently used to do translations in QGIS:

  • the Transifex web platform, the easiest and recommanded way to translate QGIS, transparently does the process described above and pulls all the translatable texts in one place for the translator. He then just picks the files he wants and does the translation
  • Qt Linguist, a Qt development tool that requires the translator to pick and replace the .po files from the source code.

Note that whatever tool you choose, rules of translations are the same.

Warning

An important note: If you want to translate content within the docs folder (not web), never do this in the master branch. For translations there are always translation branches available, once a document is fully updated in english for a certain version. As an example, to translate the manual of QGIS 2.8, you have to use the manual_en_v2.8 branch.

Translate a file

Para explciar como as traduções funcionam, iremos usar o módulo do mapa de densidade como exemplo. Neste exemplo iremos traduzir de Inglês para Holândes, mas irá ser practicamente a mesma coisa para os outros documentos em todos os idiomas.

The source of the document can be found here:

QGIS-Documentation/source/docs/user_manual/plugins/plugins_heatmap.rst

Portanto porque escolhi este documento?

  1. É considerado acabado para o actual lançamento. Se ainda não estiver completo pode ser encontrada a seguinte linha vazia no topo do documento.

    |updatedisclaimer|

    Isto irá produzir um aviso visível no produto de saída. Para iniciar a tradução do documento com um aviso de actualização, poderá ser necessário mais tarde acabá-lo.

  2. Também inclui imagens, capturas, cabeçalhos, referências e susbsituições.

  3. Eu escrevi isto, e assim, é mais fácil para mim, traduzir ;-)

The build process has created the English .po file which can be found here:

QGIS-Documentation/i18n/en/LC_MESSAGES/docs/user_manual/plugins/plugins_heatmap.po

The equivalent Dutch .po file (basically a copy) can be found here:

QGIS-Documentation/i18n/nl/LC_MESSAGES/docs/user_manual/plugins/plugins_heatmap.po

Along this file you will see a tiny .mo file which indicates that it does not hold any translations yet.

Translation in Transifex

In order to translate QGIS with Transifex, you first need to join the project. Once you got a team, click on the corresponding project and your language. You get a list of all translatable .po files. Click on the docs_user-manual_plugins_plugins-heatmap to select the heatmap plugin file and choose Translate in the prompted dialog. Note that you can also choose to download the file and translate it with tools like Qt Linguist. The next page lists all the sentences in the file. All you need to do is select the text and translate following the guidelines.

For further information on the use of Transifex Web Editor, see http://docs.transifex.com/tutorials/txeditor/.

Traduções no Qt Linguist

With Qt Linguist, you need to manually grab the .po file. When you open the file in Qt Linguist for the first time you will see the following dialog:

Figure Translation 1:

../../_images/linguist_choose_language.png

Seleccione o idioma para a tradução no menu linguist osx

O idioma Destino deverá ser preenchido correctamente. O idioma de Origem pode ser deixado como o idioma POSIX e País/Região em Qualquer País.

When you press the [OK] button Qt Linguist is filled with sentences and you can start translating, see Figure_translation_2.

Figure Translation 2:

../../_images/linguist_menu.png

Translate using the linguist menu

No menu poderá ver os seguintes botões que devem ser usados.

  • linguist_done_next The Translation Done Next button, is the most important button. If the item needs translation, you enter a translation in the text field, then hit this button. If the item does not need translation just leave the text field for translation empty and also hit this button which indicates the item is done and you continue with the next item.
  • linguist_previous O Botão Anterior, pode ser usado para ir para um item anterior de tradução.

  • linguist_next O Botão Seguinte, pode ser usado para ir para o próximo item de tradução.

  • linguist_next_todo O Botão Seguinte A Fazer, salta para o primeiro item que ainda precisa de tradução. É útil quando o documento original foi mudado e apenas algumas instruções novas/alteradas necessitam de ser traduzidas.

  • linguist_previous_todo O Botão Anterior A Fazer, faz uma procura para trás e salta para o primeiro item de tradução e verifica se necessita de tradução.

Traduzir o manual

Agora iremos começar a traduzir o manual do plugin_heatmap !

Translating most of the sentences should be straightforward. During this translation session I will point out which parts (rst statements) need special translation.

Below we see an interesting sentence to translate:

The |heatmap| :sup:`Heatmap` plugin allows to create a heatmap from a
point vector map. A heatmap is a raster map showing the density or
magnitude of point related information. From the result "hotspots" can
easily be identified.

Esta instrução contem duas instruções rst:

  1. |heatmap| as palavras entre | são substituições e estas nunca devem ser traduzidas! Isto será substituido pelo ícone do módulo de densidade!

  2. :sup:`Heatmap`, the :sup: statement is a superposition statement and prints the following text a bit higher. This is used to show the popup texts that appear when you hover above the toolbar item and this may be different when it is actually translated in the QGIS application. In the Dutch case it is not!

Todos os outros textos nesta instrução podem ser traduzidos!

The next translation item contains the :ref: statement that is commonly used to refer to another section somewhere in the manual! The text following a :ref: statement should never be changed because it is a unique identifier!

First this core plugin needs to be activated using the Plugin Manager
(see Section :ref:`load_core_plugin`). After activation the heatmap icon
|heatmap| can be found in the Raster Toolbar.

In this case load_core_plugin is a unique reference identifier placed before an rst item that has a caption. The ref statement will be replaced with the text of the header and turned into a hyperlink. When the header this reference is refering to is translated, all references to this header will be automatically translated as well.

O próximo item contém a etiqueta rst :menuselection: seguido do texto efetivamente exibido no menu da aplicação QGIS, isto deve ser traduzido na aplicação e portando deverá ser alterado quando for o caso.

Select from menu :menuselection:`View --> Toolbars --> Raster` to activate
the Raster Toolbar when it is not yet activated.

O item “Ver –>” acima está actualmente traduzido para “Beeld –>” porque esta é a tradução usada para Holandês localizada na aplicação QGIS.

Um pouco mais à frente nós encontramos um item de tradução um pouco mais difícil:

The |heatmap| :sup:`Heatmap` tool button starts the Dialog of the Heatmap
plugin (see figure_heatmap_2_).

It holds a reference to a figure figure_heatmap_2_, and like a reference to section this reference should not be changed!! The reference definition itself from the rst-document is not included in the .po file and can therefore not be changed. This means the reference to figures can not be translated. When HTML is created you will see figure_heatmap_2. When a PDF document is created figure_heatmap_2_ is replaced with a figure number.

O próximo item de tradução com atributos rst é o seguinte item:

**Input Point dialog**: Provides a selection of loaded point vector maps.

Do not remove the stars in above line. It will print the text it holds in bold. The text itself is often text included in the dialog itself and may well be translated in the application.

O seguinte item de tradução contém a etiqueta :guilabel: rst.

When the |checkbox| :guilabel:`Advanced` checkbox is checked it will
give access to additional advanced options.

The text Advanced of the guilabel tag may well be translated in the QGIS application and probably needs to be changed!

The following translation item contains ``airports``. The quotes are used to give the text another text font. In this case it is a literal value and does not need translation.

For the following example, we will use the ``airports`` vector point
layer from the QGIS sample dataset (see :ref:`label_sampledata`).
Another excellent QGIS tutorial on making heatmaps can be found on
`http://qgis.spatialthoughts.com
<http://qgis.spatialthoughts.com/2012/07/tutorial-making-heatmaps-using-qgis-and.html>`_.

This item also includes a hyperlink with an url and an external presentation. The url should of course be left intact, you are allowed to change the external text http://qgis.spatialthoughts.com which is visible by the reader. Never remove the underscore at the end of the hyperlink which forms an essential part of it!!

Sumário das Regras para a tradução

  1. Do not change text between two | characters like |bronze|, |checkbox|, |labels|, |selectString|, |addLayer| ... These are special tags used to replace images
  2. Do not change references that start with the tag :ref: or :file:
  3. Do not change references that end with an underscore like figure_labels_1_
  4. Do not change the url in hyperlinks, but you may change the external description. Leave the underscore at the end of the hyperlink, without additional spacing (>`_)
  5. Change the text inside quotes following :index:, :sup:, :guilabel: and :menuselection: tags. Check if/how it is translated in the QGIS Application. Do not change the tag itself.
  6. Text between double stars and double quotes often indicate values or fieldnames, sometimes they need translation sometimes not.
  7. Be aware to use exactly the same (number of) special characters of the source text such as `, ``, *, **, ::. These contribute to the cosmetics of the information provided
  8. Do not begin nor end the text hold by special characters or tags with a space
  9. Do not end the translated strings with a new paragraph, otherwise the text will not be translated during the html generation.

Agarra-se às regras apresentadas em cima e o documento traduzido irá ficar muito bom!
