A static site translation monitoring tool

Project description

rumi

Not the ones speaking the same language, but the ones sharing the same feeling understand each other. —Rumi

Rumi is a static site translation monitoring tool designed to support the localization (l10n) and internationalization (i18n) of documentation, and to facilitation the long-term maintenance of translated documentation.

Rumi currently supports two workflows for translation monitoring: file-based monitoring and message-based monitoring, both of which are described below.

File-based Translation Monitoring Workflow

File-based translation flow exemplified with Hugo site

1. Create reader

reader = FileReader(
        repo_path=".",
        branch="main",
        langs="",
        content_paths=["content"],
        extensions=[".md"],
        pattern="folder/",
        src_lang="en",
        use_cache=True
    )

Parameters:

repo_path: Path to the repository for translation monitoring. branch: Name of the branch to read the github history from. content_paths: List of paths from the root of the repository to the directory that contains contents for translation, e.g., ["content", "data", "i18n"].
extensions: List of extensions of the target files for translation monitoring.
pattern: Two types of patterns in which the static site repository is organized: "folder (organizing contents from each locale into one folder of the locale name, e.g. en/filename.md, fr/filename.md) and ".lang" (organizing contents from each locale by tagging the file name with the locale name, e.g. filename.en.md, filename.fr.md) langs: Language codes joint by a white space as specified by the user. If not specified, FileReader will try to get languages from the filenames in the current repository for monitoring. src_lang: Default source language set by user. use_cache: Whether to use cached commit history datastructure.

2. Set targets

The target files for translation monitoring are initialized using content_paths and extensions, and it can also be specified by adding or deleting single filename.

reader.add_target(filename)
reader.del_target(filename)

3. Calculate commits

commits = reader.parse_history()       # Structured commit history

4. Create reporter

reporter = FileReporter(
    repo_path=reader.repo_path,
    src_lang=detail_src_lang,
    tgt_lang=detail_tgt_lang
)

src_lang: Language code of the source language (the original language of contents) to be reported. If not specified, all source language will be reported. tgt_lang: Language code of the target language (language to translate contents into) to be reported. If not specified, all target language will be reported.

5. Report stats and details

stats mode: displays the number of Open (hasn't been translated), Updated (source file has been updated after translation), Completed (source file has been translated for all target languages). E.g.:

stats = reporter.get_stats(commits)
reporter.print_stats(stats)

"""
    | Target Language   |   Total |   Open |   Updated |   Completed |
    |-------------------+---------+--------+-----------+-------------|
    | fr                |       0 |      0 |         0 |           0 |
    | en                |       1 |      0 |         0 |           1 |
    | zh                |       1 |      0 |         1 |           0 |
    | ja                |       1 |      1 |         0 |           0 |
"""

detail mode: displays translation work required for each target file together with more details. E.g.:

details = reporter.get_details(commits)
reporter.print_details(details)

"""
| File    | Status    | Source Language | Word Count | Target Language | Percent Completed | Percent Updated |
|---------+-----------+-----------------+------------+-----------------+-------------------+-----------------|
| file.md | completed | fr              |          4 | en              | 100.0%            | 0%              |
| file.md | updated   | fr              |          4 | zh              | 50.0%             | 50.0%           |
| file.md | open      | fr              |          4 | ja              | 0%                | 100.0%          |
"""

Here Word Count reports number of words in the source file. Percent Completed is estimated by number of lines in the translation file divided by that in the source file. Percent Updated is number of lines inserted in the source file since the latest edit of the translation file.

Message-based Translation Monitoring Workflow

Message-based translation flow exemplified with React App

1. Create reader

reader = MsgReader(
    repo_path=".",
    branch="main",
    content_paths=["content"],
    extensions=[".po"],
    src_lang="en",
    use_cache=True
    )

2. Set targets

reader.add_target(filename)
reader.del_target(filename)

3. Calculate commits

commits = reader.parse_history()

4. Create reporter

reporter = MsgReporter()

5. Report stats and details

stats mode: Print out a summary of the translation.

stats = reporter.get_stats(commits, src_lang)
reporter.print_stats(stats)

"""
    | Language   |   Total |   Open |   Updated |   Completed |
    |------------+---------+--------+-----------+-------------|
    | en         |       2 |      0 |         0 |           0 |
    | fr         |       2 |      1 |         1 |           0 |
    | ja         |       2 |      0 |         1 |           1 |
"""

detail mode: Print out the details of messages needing translations for each language and provide word count.

details = reporter.get_details(commits, src_lang)
reporter.print_details(details)

"""
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ja Open: 2
    msgid1
    msgid2
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    zh Open: 0
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    de Open: 0
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    fr Open: 1
    msgid1
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    en Open: 0
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
"""

6. Rumi Download

Rumi can help you download the new messages from Lingui Extract results:

reporter.download_needs(details, lang, path=".")

7. Rumi Insert Translated

Rumi can also insert the new translations back into the old ones, to support the next Lingui Compile step.

reporter.insert_translations("new_translations.txt", "old_messages.po")

8. Additional Resources for the SDE steps

Here are some additional resources for getting set up with Lingui on your React project:

  • UI Dev: Setup Lingui.js
  • Lingui Extract: npm run extract or yarn extract
  • Lingui Compile: npm run compile or yarn compile
