Bastien Montagne (mont29) closed T54993: The mixed-up use of the word 'Lines' with a hidden meaning 'number of', and the original meaning as Archived.

Am sorry, but this looks much more like feature request than actual bug report, we do not handle that here. Further more, dev time for i18n aspect of the project is pretty much NULL currently, so… we’ll have to live with what we have for now.

"While Held" means keyframes are propagated to next frames as long as ("while") they hold the same value as the current frame ("held").

I do not yet know the inside working of the translation code, so this idea is just a gabbled thought in my head. Maybe all the definitions of CONTEXT strings should be placed outside, in a text file, and allowing translators to add their own definitions to it. The coding will just follow the context to insert the appropriate translation beneath it. Would this make life much easier for the translation portion of the code? I personally think I could live with this - of course, this is relating to homophones (words with multiple meanings).

Actually, I include the latest .blend file to help you, the loaded UI should have both windows opened to let you see the effects, all you need to do is to drop the 'blender.mo' file and change the language to 'Vietnamese' (Tiếng Việt) :

I'll make sure of that @blend-it (blend-it)! I've start tackling the job, but I feel a little bit unsure about how to properly translate the pages.
From a brief research I've found out this guidelines: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Meta:Guides/Translation_Guide. Are they the only source of wisdom on the topic?

From a brief research I've found out this guidelines: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Meta:Guides/Translation_Guide. Are they the only source of wisdom on the topic?
Is there a better section to start with? My first attempt was on the "text" section, and to be honest is taking more time I expected. Are you suggesting to first working on the titles and only then on the body?
Also it's not quite clear to me if it is appropriate to translate the Blender UI words. While in the glossary they are useful to quickly understand the italian translation, in the other pages seems the least importan things to me. Take for instance the page about "Empties": is calling them "vuoti" really helping the reader/user? In my mind it seems more helpful to refer to them with the name they see in the UI. So I would have focus on the body, the instructions on how to use them, rather then the titles. But it's just my first thought, maybe it would took to much time to do everything this way. What's your opinion?

@Carlo Bergonzini (CarloB)
Hi and thanks to take care about manual.
Please make sure that the terms you will use in the manual are the same the Blender UI use.
I've translated the Glossary and a lot of titles (skipping the body of the text) for this reason, but the work is far to be completed, so, pay attention to the coherence and feel free to ask! ;)
