Qt Linguist editor

The editor is used for translation of local speech and follows the de-facto user interface standard.
  • The speech feedback is organized in four contexts; Embosser, Error, Menu and Properties. Some of the sentences in English are repeated, but in different context.
  • Green check mark = translated and technical OK
  • Yellow question mark = computer translated, need to be verified
  • Grey question mark = need to be translated
  • Red exclamation sign = technical error, (%1, not allowed character)
  • ctrl+enter = confirm translated sentence and move to next
  • A comma "," in translated text = a pause in the speech output

  • Open the speech source file for your local language. The name format is embosser_de_de.ts first de = language, second de = country/region
  • Translate the sentences in each context; Embosser, Error, Menu and Properties.
