Description Claude Paroz 2010-07-17 14:54:20 UTC
There is currently a project to translate some movie subtitles (e.g. Guadec videos) using infrastructure. The translate-toolkit contains a tool to convert subtitle files in po files. I'd like to use this tool.
Anyway, there might be other quality-control tools useful for Damned-Lies in this great toolkit.

There seems to be some packaging problem with translate-toolkit in Ubuntu 10.04. Let's have some counsel from authors/maintainers before proceeding...

Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Alpha (2) provides Translate Toolkit 1.5.3-1ubuntu1 (latest version 1.7.0) and Gaupol (and python-aeidon) 0.16.2-2 (latest version 0.17).

Debian unstable provides Translate Toolkit 1.5.3-1 and Gaupol (and python-aeidon) 0.17-1.

I'll file bugs to get newer versions in Ubuntu (and possibly Debian) to get the newer versions in the repositories. That should fix the problems.

I tried to add at
but then realised that damned-lies really needs to be able to generate PO files.

The stub module details are at 
I removed the branch details for now.
Comment 4 Sense Hofstede 2010-08-02 21:07:38 UTC
The current HEAD of Translate Toolkit tries first to use python-aeidon, and then uses Gaupol if it can't find aeidon.

I was planning to port it myself, but I was too late.
