Integración con Weblate¶
Fundamentos de Weblate¶
Estructura de los proyectos y los componentes¶
In Weblate translations are organized into projects and components. Each project can contain number of components and those contain translations into individual languages. The component corresponds to one translatable file (for example GNU gettext or Recursos de cadenas de Android). The projects are there to help you organize component into logical sets (for example to group all translations used within one application).
Internally, each project has translations to common strings propagated across other components within it by default. This lightens the burden of repetitive and multi version translation. The translation propagation can be disabled per Configuración de componentes using Permitir propagación de traducciones in case the translations should diverge.
Importing localization project into Weblate¶
Weblate has been developed with VCS integration in mind as it’s core feature, so the easiest way is to grant Weblate the access to your repository. The import process will guide you through configuring your translations into components.
Alternatively, you can use Weblate to set up a local repository containing all the translations without integration.
Fetching updated translations from Weblate¶
To fetch updated strings from Weblate, you can simply fetch the underlying Git repository (either from filesystem, or it can be made available through Git exporter). Prior to this, you might want to commit any pending changes (see Consignas diferidas). You can do so in the user interface (in the Repository maintenance) or from the command line using Cliente de Weblate.
Alternateively, you can use API REST de Weblate to update translations to match their latest version.
Fetching remote changes into Weblate¶
To fetch the strings newly updated in your repository into Weblate, just let it pull from the upstream repository. This can be achieved in the user interface (in the Repository maintenance), or from the command line using Cliente de Weblate.
This can be automated by setting a webhook in your repository to trigger Weblate whenever there is a new commit, see Updating repositories for more details.
If you’re not using a VCS integration, you can use UI or API REST de Weblate to update translations to match your code base.
Adding new strings¶
In case your translation files are stored in a VCS together with the code, you most likely have an existing workflow for developers to introduce new strings. Any way of adding strings will be picked up, but consider using Quality gateway for the source strings to avoid introducing errors.
When the translation files are separate from the code, there are following ways to introduce new strings into Weblate. For now, Weblate can intorduce new strings only to monolingual translations (check Formatos bilingües y monolingües).
Manually, using Add new translation string from Tools menu in the language used as the source for translations.
Programatically, using API
By uploading source file as Replace existing translation file (this overwrites existing strings, so please make sure the file includes both old and new strings, see Métodos de importación).
