[EP-tech] Translate citations?



Hi Yuri,
I haven't tested it, but from http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Phrase_Format  try the following in your language specific phrases:

e.g. in lang/en/phrases/custom.xml:

<epp:phrase id="resticted_warning">Restricted to <epc:pin name="security" /><epc:if test="date_embargo"> until <epc:pin name="date_embargo" />.</epc:if></epp:phrase>


Also, not the cause of the problem but your phrase id is missing an 'r' in the middle of 'restricted', however you've left it out everywhere so it should work.

Regards,
Alan

Subject: [EP-tech] Translate citations?

Hi!

  Translating citations seems overkilling, I'm unable to do it in a correct way (with pin values, for example), just plain text phrases.
This means complex sentences are hard or impossible to translate.

For example, I would like to translate this:

https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/33a7bb8a8b3f80ba02ddd6618eb4e7dc3209ec68/lib/defaultcfg/citations/document/default.xml

to italian.

This is the interesting part:

<epc:if test="security != 'public'">
   <br />Restricted to <epc:print expr="security"/><epc:if test="date_embargo"> until <epc:print expr="date_embargo"/>.</epc:if> </epc:if>

This don't work:

======
in citations/document/default.xml:

<epc:if test="security != 'public'">
   <br />
       <epc:phrase ref="resticted_warning" ><epc:param name="security"><epc:print expr="security"/></epc:param>
       <epc:param name="date_embargo"><epc:print expr="date_embargo"/></epc:param> </epc:phrase> </epc:if>

lang/en/phrases/custom.xml:

<epp:phrase id="resticted_warning">Restricted to <epc:print expr="security"/><epc:if test="date_embargo"> until <epc:print expr="date_embargo"/>.</epc:if></epp:phrase>

lang/it/phrases/custom.xml:

<epp:phrase id="resticted_warning">Ristretto a <epc:print expr="security"/><epc:if test="date_embargo"> fino a <epc:print expr="date_embargo"/>.</epc:if></epp:phrase>
=====

It returns an error:

------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------- EPrints System Error ----------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
Script in Phrase: 'resticted_warning': can't get a property {security} from undefined value at character 0 security ^ here
------------------------------------------------------------------

(this happen also with date_embargo alone)

So, what to do? In this example, I can translate piece by piece (so just text with no variables) but in other situations I can't do it, I need variable substitution in the right place.
