How to get a list of contributors for translations

Asked by Jaap Karssenberg on 2007-12-07

It is common practice to include a "TRANSLATORS" file in the source package listing the contributors for all the translations that are included. Is there an easy way to get this list from Launchpad? Currently I click trough each language and to the user page of each translator to get this info, seems there should be a better way to do this.

If the PO template includes a "translator-credits" msgid, then the PO files from Launchpad will automatically fill it in with details of the people who contributed. This way you can use _("translator-credits") in your application to get a list of the people who contributed to the translation the user is using.

If you also want a TRANSLATORS file, it might be easiest to do the above and then extract the credits from the .po files.

Thanks James Henstridge, that solved my question.
