Internationalizing Squishdot
Squishdot Posted by Kevin Jardine on Tuesday October 24, 05:02PM, 2000
from the gotta-have-it-in-Spanish dept.

I wonder if anyone has internationalized Squishdot recently?

I have written a tool which hunts for text in dtml files and replaces it with a language independent tag. But before I plunge into this, I wonder if this has already been done, preferably with a recent version of Squishdot.

    I hope you make your tool available, if not. Could really use something like that over here.

    Thanks,
    Navin.

      I'm going to wait a few days, and if no internationalized recent Squishdot version emerges, I am going to try to create one.

      I'm planning on creating a generalized internationalization tool written in Python, because this problem is bound to re-occur - not just for Squishdot. It will scan a set of dtml/html files, replace the text with dtml-var tags, and then create a string dictionary referenced to the original source code files which can be interactively modified.

      Unless some one already knows of such an internationalization tool? I am aware of a GNU tool that works on C programs, but I have never seen one for dtml/html.

      Cheers,
      Kevin

        You might want to look at http://www.zope.org/Products/internationalization

        For zope products that do simular things!

        Both of the above are links to projects which are in this sort of area.

        Out of interest, are Greenpeace using Squishdot anywhere yet? It would be very cool if they were ;-)

        cheers,

        Chris

          Stay tuned ...

          We hope to have a Squishdot-based cyberactivism centre up and running within a week. English-only to start with, but Spanish and other languages eventually.

          It will be pretty bare bones to start with, but we have about 50,000 cyberactivists around the world, so it could be a pretty happening place eventually.

          We're not quite sure whether Zope can handle the load and multilanguage requirements, however, so we're also evaluating the Arsdigita Community System as a longer term alternative.

          Cheers,
          Kevin

            Zope will be fine...

            You may want to move to Swishdot at some point (once I've written it ;-) but that should be easy to do with the migration tools...

            good luck,

            Chris
