Lokalize
Lokalize is the localization tool for KDE 4

Lokalize is a replacement for KBabel which is now discontinued.

Lokalize with French translation of Konqueror

Some more info on Lokalize can be found on the Lokalize summer of code page: http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Summer_of_Code/2007/Projects/KAider


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.

Here was a link to lokalize052009.exe, that replace a vanilla Lokalize with the latest Lokalize version from trunk. This link is now broken :-(

Technical details: you install KDE 4.2 in standard way, and then add custom-compiled Lokalize binaries and data (to-be 4.3).


Compiling Lokalize from trunk under KDE 4.2

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

svn checkout --depth=files svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdesdk/
cd kdesdk && svn up cmake doc lokalize
mkdir build
cd build
mkdir $HOME/kde43
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kde43 -CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo
make -j2
make install

Then run lokalize via $HOME/kde43/bin/lokalize


Tips and tricks

Search in files

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 appropriate entry. When you want to do another search during the same day, you skip 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).
