This is a tool to review the user visible strings of your program. It is made for developers who do not speak english well but are coding in english and want their user visible texts to be reviewed. This program relies on the gettext utils. It uses a .po file for the review process.

Use this syntax:

poreviewtool COMMAND [OPTIONS]

Review english user visible strings within your source code

This is a tool to review the user visible strings of your program. It is
made for developers who don't speak english well but are coding in english
and want their user visible texts to be reviewed. This program relies on the
gettext utils. It uses a .po file for the review process. Here is a little
step-by-step guide to use this program:

1.) We assume that you are familar with the gettext utils and yet using i18n()
(or comparable) for all user visible strings within your sourcecode.

2.) We assume that you have yet created a translation template (.pot file) and
are keeping it up-to-date.

3.) Create a .po file for the review process:
msginit --locale=en_US -i MYPROGRAMNAME.pot -o MYPROGRAMNAME_en_US.po
You should make sure that your review .po file isn't located in the
directory of your normal .po files or in one of its subdirectories
because usually the scripts that keep up to date the .po files would
catch it also and merging it like normal translation files would have
side effecte.

4.) Use 'poreviewtool msgmerge' to merge updates of the .pot file to

5.) Send MYPROGRAMNAME_en_US.po to the person who will do the review of
the string. The msgid ('original string') it treated as the string that
has to be reviewed. msgstr ('translation') is used to put the review
result: Either the very same string if the original was okay, or the
corrected version if the original was bad.

6.) When you get back the .po file, put it in its place in your sources
(overwriting the old one) and merge again like in 4.)

7.) Call:
cat MYPROGRAMNAME_en_US.po | poreviewtool dump-difference > pending-changes.po
This will generate the file 'pending-changes.po' that contains only these
entries which have to be corrected. Read this file and make the
corresponding changes in your source code.

BTW: afterthedeadline.com and polishmywriting.com provide high quality
english spell and grammar checkers as open source!

Commands are:

Reads a .po file from stdin and puts out only the
entries of the .po file for which the translation differes from the
original (empty translations are always ignored). Writes to stdout.

This command merges the changes in POTFILE into
POFILE. This command differs from the 'msgmerge' command of the gettext
utils! It will
1. remove fuzzy 'translations'
2. produce dummy entries that prevent that prevent that (after inserting
the corrections in the source code) the reviewer will be prompted again
for the now changed strings
3. merge PO and POT file, but without fuzzy matching and guarding all
obsolete translations as comments. (The last one will increase the file
size, but makes sure that once a string is reviewed as 'okay', this
information will not be lost if the string disappears in the sources. If
it re-appears in a later version of the sources, the review will be yet

dumps only the translations as simple plain text file (fuzzy translations
are ignored). This is for normal .po translations, NOT for the english
string review .po files.
