[EP-tech] Translate citations?


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:


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>

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>


<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>


<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
^ 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.
