RFC about pane translation
« on: November 23, 2023, 07:20:13 pm »
Translating the pane labels as I did in r13179 works, but has a nasty side effect: When saving the perspective the translated labels are saved, overwriting the original english labels that get lost forever.

In brief, the first time you select a non-english language the labels will get stuck in said language and you will not be able to see them in other language.

I am thinking about reverting r13179, this would leave the AUI panes' labels permanently in english, but at least they will not be in russian as I have them currently with all other texts in spanish.

Ideas? Opinions?

As you know, these strings are saved in a .conf file, default.conf for me (in items caption=something).
Do you know why has been made this choice ? other strings are translated on the fly, but why not these ones ?
Apparently, they are recreated at the next C::B start, if you delete the default.conf, but this is not a good solution because you loose all other config adjustements !
May be you can recreate those strings, and only them, keeping all other settings, when you change the interface language.
Windows 11 64 bits (23H2), svn C::B (last version or almost!), wxWidgets 3.2.5 (tests with 3.3), Msys2 Compilers 14.1.0, 64 bits (seh, posix : gcc, g++ and gfortran in C:\msys64\mingw64) or 32 bits (dwarf2, posix  in C:\msys64\mingw32).

Will keeping different personalities for each language work for you?
That, at least, will write a separate .conf file for each language.

Are you talking about these pieces of XML in the default.conf file?it is possible to move these language-related pieces to the lang/en subfolder; lang/fr; lang/it.
Code
default.conf
lang/
  it.xml
  en.xml
Can we import an XML file into another XML file?

Code

I have (sort of) fixed this issue restoring the english captions if no translation is active. As described in r13399, to unlock the captions properly the steps are:

1.- If you want to go back to english, disable I18n (in Environment/View), reopen C::B and save the perspective.
2.- If you want to change from one translation to another, switch to english (see 1) and then reenable I18n with the new translation.

Thanks to those who commented.
