<!-- -*- markdown -*- --> gtkPyglot ========= A simple desktop tool aimed to help translators providing them the services from pylyglot.org and google translate directly on their desktop in simple and clean interface. Introduction ------------- gtkPyglot was inspired by the pylyglot.org website, and since always having a webbrowser opened to check a translation the developer (that would be me) decided that he needs a tool for easely working with the website. The Idea borned and after a couple of hours the tool was working and giving the results. Some more polishing and in the last minute adding the support for google translate - the gtkPyglot tool was ready to publish for testing. This application will not translate a whole application. It gives you the possibility to check how other have translated a particular term from english in your language. Ofcourse that doesn't mean the results will be always corrent, but it schould give you a hint how you could translate a specific menu label, button, description etc. Since version 2.0 gtkPyglot can work in Offline mode. To work in that mode you need to have a database file with the translations. Currently The application can't generate one, but you can use the one, generated on 04.03.2011 from the gnome translations website. Be advised, that this database file is really large and containes 55 languages - the ones supported by pylyglot. The filesize of the database file is ~ 349MB and can be downloaded from the following URL: https://www.wuala.com/vkolev/Scripts/langs.db?key=txIFzTBQrudn Requirements ------------ * Internet connection (to access pylyglot and google) * Python >= 2.6 * PyGTK >= 2.16 * python-simplejson * python-pysqlite2 * python-configobj Installation ------------ There is no installation needed, just download the archive, extract and run from the terminal: $ python gtkpyglot.py If you like the application and want to contribute, a package for your favorite distribution will be appritiated, but that's just an example, any help is welcome.
