How to test your translation from Transifex? (Short manual)

(1/1)

strebski:

* Make sure you have installed qt5-tools package in your computer
* Compile and install Scribus SVN version
* In Transifex choose your language under Scribus resource
* Choose "Download for use ?" option
* File "for_use_scribus_scribus_XX_xx.ts" is downloaded, where XX_xx is a code of your language
* Open terminal in folder where you have downloaded translation file and type - "lrelease for_use_scribus_scribus_XX_xx.ts" - now you have "for_use_scribus_scribus_XX_xx.qm" file
* Put your new file into /usr/share/scribus/translations/ folder and rename it to "scribus.XX_xx.qm"
* Launch Scribus SVN version and start testing your downloaded translationEnjoy! :)

Thanks Strebski!
At some point we can also make an additional comment for Windows and OSX users.
There are some relevant screenshots at https://github.com/scribusproject/scribus/issues/15 for how to download translations from Transifex.

Hi. Since I don't know how to compile I never tried the method described in this post. But by lucky I found in https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=14516 (by the way it would be great to have this link in https://www.scribus.net/downloads/unstable-branch/ ) and found we have available the "nightly builds" to download and thought I could try to see if translations are ok in Scribus but I found this doesn't have translations updated. Can anyone update the translations from Transifex if possible? It would be great to test the translation before the next release.
