Translations

This page provides detailed information about JOSM translation.

StartupPage translation

The translation of JOSM start messages can be changed at StartupPageSource.

This page has a special format:

  • Each line "en:" starts a new translatable line.
  • Each line with another language translates the previous English line.
  • Each line without specifics is taken as is.
  • Lines starting with "#" are ignored.

NOTE: There aren't always empty lines between the different sets. Be careful not to mix translations or forget some!

When changing English text please keep in mind that translations also need to be adapted. If you are not able to do so, then add an "x" in front of the language, so the translation is still available, but disabled.

Please sort the entries by the language abbreviation!

When you press preview or submit new revision, then the page has multiple sections containing the individual languages. Lines marked with EN show untranslated lines, lines marked with X show lines, which have been removed due to changed texts.

The table below shows translation status:

  • Yellow: Translations need update
  • Green: Everything up-to-date
  • The numbers are:
    • first: number of untranslated lines
    • second: number of outdated translations

VersionHistory translation

The translation of older JOSM start messages can be changed at the page of VersionHistorySource for the current year, or for the past years, from 2008 on upto last year, on the page for the year (e.g. VersionHistorySource/2011).

The format is the same as above.

Software translation

Translation of the program texts is done at Launchpad.

The templates at Launchpad are updated each night together with the new latest build. Translations are imported before each new release (or more often when needed).

The Java translation has some specialities which must be remembered when translating:

  • The ' sign is a special character. It must be escaped by another ', so '' means a single quote in resulting display.
  • For languages with heavy usage of this character the typographic ’ may be used instead of the escaping (looks better when translating, in the final software a user will hardly see the difference).
    • This character is U+2019 named RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK
    • Under Linux this character is available with <ALT-GR>+<SHIFT>+<N>
    • Under Windows the character is available by pressing <ALT> and typing 0146 on keypad
  • Don't use the message formating brackets {}, or when, then escape each with single quotes like '{' or '}'.

All strings have a reference to the place in source code where they appear. That can help to find proper translation. You find the sources here:

Changes made in Launchpad will be imported into JOSM for all languages which are already in JOSM. Usually the JOSM team updates the text data once or twice just before the release of a new tested version (which is usually at the end of every month, see roadmap).

New languages will be added to JOSM when there are at least 2000 translated strings. Please start with main user interface to reach best results.

A short description how to add new language support for test purposes, when 2000 strings limit is not yet reached:

  • Create the language files and store them in the plugin file (or JOSM core):
    • Language files are stored in directory "data" of JOSM and named with the lowercase language code with extension .lang.
    • These files are always a set. The English base file and the translation files must be created together or they will not work correctly.
    • The Perl script i18n.pl must be called with a destination directory and the .po files to create translation data.
  • Add the new language in init() function of I18n.java:
    • A proper code for the plural mode of the language needs to specified.
    • A description of the plural calculations can be found in the .po file downloaded from Launchpad.
    • If none of the existing modes matches the language, add new one needs to be added in the PluralMode enumeration and in pluralEval() function.
    • For some special languages it is necessary to add workaround code in LanguageInfo.java to translate between Java language code and the newer codes used on Launchpad

Current JOSM translation status active in the software (only JOSM core and server, no plugins) is shown in following table.
