trans(1)						      General Commands Manual							  trans(1)

trans - translation tool for use with source message catalogs SYNOPSIS
trans [-c] [-o name] file.msg OPTIONS
Display comment lines beginning with a dollar sign ($) for translation, in addition to messages. Call the output file name. The default is output file name is trans.msg. DESCRIPTION
The trans command assists in the translation of source message catalogs. The command reads input from file.msg and writes its output to either a file named trans.msg or a file you name on the command line. The command displays file.msg in a multiple window screen that lets you simultaneously see the original message, the translated text you enter, and any messages from the trans command. This multiple window screen is easier to use for translating messages than a single window screen. The top window in the multiple window screen displays the text in the message source file file.msg. The editor displays the current message in reverse video. In the center window, trans displays a prompt that asks you to enter a translated message. You use a control key editor to move the cursor and delete text in the center window. The control key sequences are defined as follows: ------------------------------------------ Key Sequence Meaning ------------------------------------------ CTRL/k Display control key help CTRL/h Back space CTRL/l Forward space CTRL/w Back word CTRL/f Forward word CTRL/e Move to end of input CTRL/b Move to beginning of input CTRL/n Next line CTRL/p Previous line CTRL/u Delete input CTRL/i Insert mode (default) CTRL/r Replace mode DEL Delete previous character ------------------------------------------ If you need to span more than one line with the translated text, type a backslash () and press the RETURN key to enable line continuation. After you finish entering the translated text, press the RETURN key to signal that you have finished translating that message. The bottom window displays any messages generated by trans. If an error occurs, trans prompts you to re-enter the entire line, including the message label or number. RESTRICTIONS
Your terminal must be 80 columns by 24 lines for trans to display its three-window screen. You cannot interrupt a trans session and restart it at the point you stopped. You must complete the all the changes to a file before exit- ing a file. SEE ALSO
