Can Sbackup po-files be used for NSsbackup?

Asked by Mads Lundby on 2009-03-01

It seems like Sbackup and NSsBackup shares a lot of code and text strings.

Can I use a translation of Sbackup as a starting point for a Nssbackup translation?

I mean, can I upload a Sbackup po-file to NSsbackup thru Launchpad, and later translate the remaining untranslated and fuzzy strings? Or would that just make a mess?

Thank you for all your good work.

Actually I don't know, This might be a question to ask to Launchpad team. I am also interested in the answer.


We were wondering about 2 things:
- Is Rosetta is able to make a merge in the following case? :
  * A developer upload version V1 of a translation template (+ let's say en.po)
  * A translator translates a string in EN
  * The developer updates the templates to V2 and en.po (which doesn't contain the string translated by the translator)
  => is the string lost ?
  => if yes, how is the way to handle correctly this case ?

- Is Rosetta able to reuse a translation made on another project for a different one?
  * Project A has been forked as Project B
  * Project A has a translation TA
  * translator want to create a translation TB of project B based on TA
  => Is it possible ? is there an alternate way to do that ?

Best regards
