|Libglade - Graphical Interface Description Loader API|
Glade files mark properties for translation with the
translatable property of the
<widget class="GtkLabel" id="label1"> <property name="label" translatable="yes">Foo</property> ... </widget>
Libglade will translate marked properties using the
translation domain specified in the
glade_xml_new() (or the default domain if
Libglade also supports disambiguating properties by
prefixing them with a |-separated context string, e.g.
"Menu/Printer|Open" vs. "Menu/File|Open". You must tell Libglade that
the property has a prefix by setting the
attribute of the
<property> element to "yes".
To learn more about this technique, read the chapter "How to use
gettext in GUI programs" in the gettext manual, and see the GLib
API documentation for g_strip_context().
To add the strings found in a glade file to your translation catalog template through the use of intltool. (XXXX - does this actually work yet?).
