#4 Move weather info text into localizable strings


I think this has been discussed before, but in order to completely translate Meteorologist, the strings that appear in the actual weather info should be moved out to a localizable strings file. Right now, the prefs window is localized, but whatever appears in the Meteo window, is not.

I don't think hacking around in the source code is a viable alternative :)

It would be cool if this could be done.
I faintly remember this was planned for the 2.0 branch.... ?

    Hi Niels,

    You are correct that it will be nearly impossible to accomplish localization of the weather strings with version 1.4.x code. I built much more localization into version 2.0 in hopes of doing this. Also, I am evaluating some solutions that might make it easier to build additional plugins for Meteo 2.0 (e.g. plugins written in JavaScript). Hopefully, the community will build some plugins for sources serving in different languages.

    I'm actually doing this for 1.5.0.

    I understand that 1.4.9 isn't localized properly (if at all). What I'm saying is that for the next version 1.5.0, I've removed all of the strings in the NIB and moved them all to localization files. I extracted the strings from the individual NIB files and inserted them into the respective localization file. The individual NIB's are gone and a central NIB now exists.

    Again this is for 1.5.0 which isn't released nor is it checked in, yet. This should happen within a week.
