Autrijus Tang, OurInternet, Inc. | The Elixir Initiative

Track: Perl
Date: Friday, July 26
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: Grande Ballroom A

Localization(l10n) is more than use utf8, make message catalogs, and find a group of translators; it involves creatively combining a wide range of tools, and catering them to the usage scenario at hand.

Based on the experience of translating Slashcode(Slash), RT(Mason), Freenetproject.org(TWiki), Sympa(Msgcat), Sql-Ledger and other projects to Chinese, this talk introduces the following topics:

  • Time-saving approaches to hook l10n into an existing application
  • Keep translations of an Open Source project up to date
  • Multilingual site design -- a Wiki in four(and more) encodings
  • L10n tips and tricks for various application frameworks
  • How to choose from Locale::* modules, and their common pitfalls
