Translation Utility to Create Pseudo Translations of PO Files
Potpie is a GPL Licensed cli wrapper around the Psuedo Translations available from Transifex pseudo translations. The available types are brackets, unicode, planguage, extend, and mixed.
To install requests, simply:
$ pip install potpie
Or, if you absolutely must:
$ easy_install potpie
But, you really shouldn’t do that.
To create a pseudo translated po file, simply:
$ potpie [--type] infile outfile
An example for a Django project might be:
$ potpie locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/django.po locale/xx_pseudo/LC_MESSAGES/django.po
The default type is mixed, if you wish to use another type simplify specify it as an option like:
$ potpie --type brackets locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/django.po locale/xx_pseudo/LC_MESSAGES/django.po
- Adds square brackets around the string (e.g. [translated text])
- Converts all characters into look alike unicode characters
Increases the length of a string by around 30-50% by replacing the vowels with unicode chars that look alike.
This is based on a P-language, which is a simple vowel-extending language.
- Increases the length of a string by around 20-700% by appending special chars (Greek, Chinese, etc) to the end of the string.
- Combines Extend, Unicode and Brackets into one Type.
