SYNOPSIS

make_strings [--help] [--verbose] [--aggresive-import] [--aggressive-match] [--aggressive-remove] [-L languages] files.[hmc...]

DESCRIPTION

make_strings parses Objective-C files and builds lists of localizable strings. It then creates new .strings files or merges the strings with existing .strings files. It’s fairly intelligent when matching old and new strings, and produces .strings files that are (supposed to be) easy for a translator to work with.

make_strings accepts the following options:

OPTIONS

--help Prints a short list of available options.
--verbose
  Prints additional information while processing.
-L languages
  Specify which languages to process. Multuple -L options are accepted, or multiple languages defined in one -L flag.
--aggressive-import
  Activates --aggresive-match and automatically removes "dummy" entries that are added by importing .strings files which were not created by make_strings program. This option is suitable when make_strings is run for the first time and there is an existing .strings file which contains a fairly accurate translation.
--aggressive-match
  This option will make make_strings assume that matching keys should have matching translations. This can save lots of work, but it increases the risk of erroneous translation.
--aggressive-remove
  Removes obsolete strings/keys.

EXAMPLES

make_strings -L "English Swedish Russian" *.[hm]
