Dictionaries and Tools for Consistency Checking

If you know of something that should be listed here, please tell it the kde-i18n-doc mailing list,

  • Pology by Chusslove Illich: powerful framework for consistency checks, making glossaries, managing translation.

  • PO Summit is the concept that can significantly increase consistency of your team translations and save your time on merging the translations in various branches.

  • An index of on-line dictionaries and a lot of other resources can be found at www.yourdictionary.com.

  • Internal KDE tools to search and compare translations allow you to make translations consistent and coherent with translations into other languages.

  • Finally a tip: in the German team they are not using their mailing list but a web forum for discussing difficult translations (one term per thread) which has the advantages: (1) that everybody can jump in without the need to subscribe to a mailing list (2) and everything is pretty well documented and easy to find for translators to come.
