Lokalize with French translation of Konqueror


Some more info on Lokalize can be found on the Lokalize summer of code page


Lokalize under Windows

Install KDE using kdewin-installer:

http://www.winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/installer/kdewin-installer-gui-latest.exe


Leave defaults in all steps except package list. In package list select kdesdk (all dependencies will be installed automatically). Complete kdewin-installation process.

Technical details: you install KDE 4.3 or later in standard way, and then add custom-compiled Lokalize binaries and data.


Compiling Lokalize from KDE trunk

Install kdelibs headers package (for example in Debian it's kdelibs5-dev) and libhunspell-dev. Then:

git clone git://anongit.kde.org/lokalize
or
git clone git@git.kde.org:lokalize

and

cd lokalize
 mkdir build
 cd build
 cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo ..
 make -j2
 ./src/lokalize.shell

Tips and tricks

Search in files

Translation Memory (TM) now keeps track of where each translation pair came from. So when you want to search for string in the files on disk, you just drag the directory with those files onto translation memory tab (F7) to update TM, wait a minute or two, then type your string into right field of Translation Memory tab, then press Enter.

Then you click on one of results and this opens appropriate file, on the appropriate entry. When you want to do another search during the same day, you skip the updating step and just type what you're searching for. You can filter TM search results by filename using the field left side of the F7 panel (Filemask).
