links to effects categories

Jump to: navigation, search

I added a link for each effect category. The pages they link to do not yet exist. I plan on creating them and using the doco at to generate doco for Kdenlive.

This addition stuffed the number of the subsequent sections up. If someone knows how to fix that - that would be good.

Done. If you actually intended blank lines separating some entries on the list, use <br /><br /> to simulate them. After a blank line enumeration restarts.

You are making a lot of work for yourself. It's not necessary to have <translate></translate> tag pairs on each entry. Unless there is something where you need to make a point that something should be excluded from translation, it is enough to enclose large chunks, and sometimes even the whole page, in a pair of tags. Do make sure that the category markup is included though. (It's sometimes overlooked too, that screenshots may need to be localised, so shouldn't be excluded Face-smile.png )

Thanks for fixing the numbering.

The translate markup looks like it might have be auto added when you "marked the page for translation". But I will keep in mind that I can put translate around alot of markup.

The tag numbering is done automatically, yes. Basically a new numbered tag is added whenever an empty line is found. You should never add tags. If you remove <translate></translate> tag pairs, leaving only one at the top and one oat the bottom it should not affect the section numbering. What it does do is show whole messages to the translators, whereas being precise in putting pairs in often ends up with translators seeing only a phrase without context. In some languages that makes a great deal of difficulty. To some extent this is an art rather than a science - thinking of how translators will see it.

In a page like this, we usually add <translate></translate> around individual items in lists. The reason is, that we want each bullet to appear in a separate translation unit, but adding blank lines between them would restart the list, which gives ugly results.

Did you intend the new subitems to not be translated?

Sorry, I think I am adding to confusion. Claus, take over and explain more clearly what works and what doesn't :-)

No. I did not intend the bits to not be translated. I was just kinda following your advice. But I think I get it now. Individual tags are probably good on this sort of thing. But on a big page on one topic - a single pair of tags is good

Actually, one single pair of tags is usually all right. It is only in dealing with certain issues where the translation system doesn't play nice with wiki markup that we need extra tags. Basically there are two kinds of issues that can arise:

  • If we want a blank line in the middle of a single translation unit it has to be done using <br /> (usually two is required).
  • We want to split lists in one translation unit per item, but sometimes wiki syntax doesn't allow blank spaces between items; in those cases we use the </translate><translate> trick.

When in doubt it's ok not to do anything. We'll pick it up.
