PO4A-TRANSLATE(1p)			    Po4a Tools			       PO4A-TRANSLATE(1p)

NAME
       po4a-translate - convert a PO file back to documentation format

SYNOPSIS
       po4a-translate -f fmt -m master.doc -p XX.po -l XX.doc

       (XX.doc is the output, all others are inputs)

DESCRIPTION
       The po4a (PO for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and more interestingly,
       the maintenance of translations) using gettext tools on areas where they were not expected
       like documentation.

       The po4a-translate script is in charge of converting the translation (which was done in a
       PO file) back into the documentation format. The provided PO file should be the
       translation of the POT file which was produced by po4a-gettextize(1).

OPTIONS
       -f, --format
	   Format of the documentation you want to handle. Use the --help-format option to see
	   the list of available formats.

       -a, --addendum
	   Add a file to the resulting file (to put translator's name or a section "About this
	   translation", for example). The first line of the file to insert should be a PO4A
	   header indicating where it should be added (see section HOWTO add extra text to
	   translations in po4a(7)).

       -A, --addendum-charset
	   Charset of the addenda. Note that all the addenda should be in the same charset.

       -m, --master
	   File containing the master document to translate.

       -M, --master-charset
	   Charset of the file containing the document to translate.

       -l, --localized
	   File where the localized (translated) document should be written.

       -L, --localized-charset
	   Charset of the file containing the localized document.

       -p, --po
	   File from which the message catalog should be read.

       -o, --option
	   Extra option(s) to pass to the format plugin. Specify each option in the 'name=value'
	   format. See the documentation of each plugin for more information about the valid
	   options and their meanings.

       -k, --keep
	   Minimal threshold for translation percentage to keep (i.e. write) the resulting file
	   (default: 80). I.e. by default, files have to be translated at at least 80% to get
	   written.

       -w, --width
	   Column at which we should wrap the resulting file.

       -h, --help
	   Show a short help message.

       --help-format
	   List the documentation formats understood by po4a.

       -V, --version
	   Display the version of the script and exit.

       -v, --verbose
	   Increase the verbosity of the program.

       -d, --debug
	   Output some debugging information.

Adding content (beside translations) to generated files
       To add some extra content to the generated document beside what you translated (like the
       name of the translator, or a "About this translation" section), you should use the
       --addendum option.

       The first line of the addendum must be a header indicating where to put it in the document
       (it can be before or after a given part of the document).  The rest of the file will be
       added verbatim to the resulting file without further processing.

       Note that if po4a-translate fails to add one of the given files, it discards the whole
       translation (because the missing file could be the one indicating the author, what would
       prevent the users to contact him to report bugs in the translation).

       The header has a pretty rigid syntax. For more information on how to use this feature and
       how it works, please refer to the po4a(7) man page.
