Here are the names of those who actually participate in the translation:
These translations have been possible thanks to the PerMondo project: Free translation of website and documents for non-profit organisations. A project managed by Mondo Agit.
There is only one file that contains all the messages that can be translated. This is the messages.properties located in the src / msg source code directory.
You must first get the source code of the application. If you are not intend to work on other aspects of the software you can limit yourself to only those files. These are the messages.properties file for the base language (english) of the software, and file messages _ ??.properties. The ?? be replaced by the language code according to ISO 639-1 (code of 2 characters lowercase).
If the file does not exist so you must create it. Download this (these) file (s) in one of your local directory, I suggest to call it ... oStorybook (original is not it?).
If you created the translation file, you definitely process by making a copy of the base file. With a standard editor, which uses the same specification text file in Unix / Linux (UTF-8, single CR) just change the right part of the equal sign (=). Be careful though, some messages can fit on multiple lines.
You can also use dedicated tools rather than a simple text editor. For example there is Attesoro, it's open source. Of course there is also NetBeans.
In case of difficulties, or if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask on the forum in the "Translations" section.
So, you spent a looooong time to do your translation (not so long as that, we must not exaggerate anyway). It is now time to integrate it into the application. The ideal is the formal integration, why just know that your translation is ready and make it available for download somewhere. If you have integrated the development team, no worries, you will make a commit and push.
But, maybe you want to test your work before releasing it. You can do this without installing Netbeans, or recompiling the software. For this you have to execute oStorybook with some parameters.
For Windows, for example, open a command line window and enter the commands:
(generaly it is C:Program FilesoStorybook)
java -jar oStorybook.jar --msg the_translated_file
Note: the translated file parameter will be the full qualified file name without the extension (.properties).
java -jar oStorybook.jar --msg C:oStorybookmessages_ru
With this I can test my russian translated file.
