Hello everybody!

I'm currently writing a dissertation about the localization of JavaScript scripts.

I'm looking for every possible way of localizing this type of file effectively using different software to protect the code and only render accessible the translatable strings.

How do you localize Javascript files? What software do you use?

Thanks in advance

ENlaso Tools Jul 8, 2008

Hi,

As far as I am concerned, Enlaso Rainbow (beta phase) converts javascripts into translatable content by protecting codes and tages. The tool is open source. I used it to convert PHP and ASP files into translatable files. To translate output, you do not need to use special tools. Just a word processor and TM tool are enough. For more information, please visit the link: http://www.translate.com/technology/tools/Rainbow4.html
I hope it works.
Best regards

Thanks Jul 8, 2008

I'm aware of Enlaso Rainbow and the Okapi Framework. I already talk about it in detail in my dissertation. But I was wondering if there are other ways (also worse ways) to handle JavaScript files.
Thank you

Swordfish handles JavaScript Jul 13, 2008

Hi Christophe,

You can use Swordfish to localize JavaScript files. It extracts translatable text and protects code.

Regards,
Rodolfo

Will GWT mean less JavaScript? Jul 17, 2008

Something you may want to mention in your dissertation: a framework such as the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) means that programmers no longer have to write in "pure" JavaScript. GWT allows programmers to write in Java. GWT then translates the Java to JavaScript and, significantly, includes a localisation framework, whereby strings to be localised are written in separate files from the outset as you'd expect. So localisation is then done 'at source' rather filtering the script. I think for the time being the level of adoption of GWT is fairly small, but if it or potentially other similar frameworks catch on, it could change the way the localisation of JavaScript is handled in the not too distant future.
