I'm writing these tips in hope they are useful.
Did you ever have to translate a string which consists mainly
of some magic "percent-letter" sequences, with a comment that
this is a date format or that you should read the strftime(3)
man page for the full format specification or sometimes even
without any comment at all? Here I'd like to explain only two
- "%d" will produce the day of the month number preceded with
zero if it is less than 10 (01, 02, ..., 09, 10, 11...)
- "%e" will produce the day of the month number preceded with
a space if it is less than 10 (" 1", " 2", ... " 9", "10"...)
If this is what you want to achieve then leave this as it is.
However, if you prefer to achieve a plain decimal number without
any additional padding in your translated date format you should
put "-" between the percent character and the letter. This "-"
means "do not pad the day number with an additional zero nor an
additional space". So summarizing:
- "%B %d" will produce "April 09";
- "%B %e" will produce "April 9" (notice two spaces);
- "%B %-d" will produce "April 9";
- "%B %-e" will produce "April 9".
Yes, "%-d" and "%-e" produces the same output.
Of course, "April" will be translated to your language automatically,
and of course you can reorder the format specifiers (do you want
"April 9" or "9 April"?) and you can put something different between
the format specifiers than a single space, according to the rules
of your language.
Dear translation coordinators,
as discussed in last meeting, we'll have a virtual Fedora Activity Day
do for Fedora 26 from April 11 to 17:
Packages groups are up-to-date on Zanata: http://fedora.zanata.org
We suggest you to translate Priority list first, but you're welcome to
translate any software.
An article will be written in Community blog for wider communication,
but please also inform your local contributors.
If anything is missing before public communication, please let us know.
have a nice day,
Bug ID: 1440516
Summary: Missing closing bracket on keyboard layout: Slovak
(extended backslash), Slovak (querty, extended
Product: Fedora Localization
Component: Other language
QA Contact: aalam(a)redhat.com
CC: dimitris(a)glezos.com, piotrdrag(a)gmail.com,
Description of problem: On the mentioned Slovak keyboard layouts closing
bracket - ) is missing. This makes entering text quite difficult as one needs
to switch to english or some other layout to enter this character.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 25, but probably also other versions
Set keyboard layout to Slovak (extended backslash) or Slovak (querty, extended
I think proper place for closing bracket is at the "backslash" key left from
the Enter, where it resides for Slovak layout or Slovak (querty) layout. Now on
this key are two ways of placing pipe - |
