[GpgOL] Providing Dutch (nl) translation

Erwin Bronkhorst
Hello,

As a big fan of Outlook, Dutch translations and of course GPG, I am a daily
user of GpgOL. I noticed that there is no Dutch translation available for
this software, so I decided to contribute to the project.

For my own convenience, I have created a fork on GitHub and committed my
changes there. You are probably only interested in [1]. I have tried to use
the same translations as used in Kleopatra, to keep the user experience
consistent. Unfortunately, I was not able to compile a working version of de
add-on, so I could not check if all strings fit within the UI.

If you decide to add Dutch, I will try to keep the translations up-to-date
with your ongoing development. What will be the preferred way of providing
new translations? Attaching patch files to an email on this mailing list, as
I see mostly done in the archives of this list?

Kind regards,

Erwin Bronkhorst

Cool, thank you!

If you have a Debian GNU/Linux at hand and are interested in help with
compiling you can ask me questions by mail or in #gpg4win on freenode IRC.

The INSTALL instructions should work and I would be interested where you
failed to improve the instructions.

To be honest I don't keep proper track on dependencies and e.g. rely on new
GPGME features as soon as they are added :-/ Sorry. The NEED_GPGME_VERSION
part in your patch is also correct. ;-)


But test the new translation yo do not need to recompile GpgOL.

Just run msgfmt on the po file and copy the resulting  gpgol.mo to
<gpg4win_dir>\şhare\locale\nl\LC_MESSAGES

GpgOL should pick it up automatically.

Basically what you prefer. Patches done with git format-patch are good, but If
you give me a ping saying that you've updated your github clone I can also
fetch the patch.

Again thanks!
Can I also interest you in translating GpgEX and the Gpg4win Installer? :-P

First of all, I need to be honest here: I use Debian for WSL (which works surprisingly well, but might have unforeseen consequences) and I don't like 'magic' scripts that do all kind of things in my build environment that I don't know about.
So I kindly ignored the instructions in the INSTALL file and did what I thought was the correct thing to do ;-). Based on one of the compilation errors I got, I found out that at least I had to update GPGME on my system and I decided to update the configure.ac right away to help other stubborn people out there as well :-P.

Solving my compilation problems is probably not the right thing to discuss on this mailing list, so I will use one of the options you gave when needed.

This is nice and works perfectly. I will probably tweak some translations based on what I see on the screen now, and let you know if I made any changes.

Cool!

Sure, I will put some effort in it the coming weeks and let you know when it is finished.

Regards,
Erwin
