SYNOPSIS

intltool-update [option]...
intltool-update LANGCODE

DESCRIPTION

intltool-update generates new po file templates from source code, and merges existing translations with these new po templates.

You must change working directory to the subdirectory containing translations (usually "po/") before running intltool-update.

OPTIONS

When executing intltool-update , only one mode of operation is allowed each time.

    Mode of operation

-p
--pot Generate po template (.pot) only.
-s
--headers Executes intltool-extract(8) to extract strings inside XML/INI style files listed in POTFILES.in, and writes the extracted strings into header files, so that the strings can be recognised by xgettext(1).
-m
--maintain Search for left out files, which should have been listed in POTFILES.in or POTFILES.skip. A list of all these files are written into another file called "missing".
-r
--report Display a status report for all translations in the software.
-d LANGCODE
--dist LANGCODE Merge LANGCODE.po with existing PO template.

    Other options

-g NAME
--gettext-package=NAME Manually specify PO template file name, instead of determining the name automatically from source. Useful with -p/--pot option. This option has an additional effect: the name of current working directory is no more limited to "po" or "po-*".
-o FILENAME
--output-file=FILENAME Manually specify output FILENAME after merging old translation with PO template. Useful either with -d/--dist option or without any option.
-x
--verbose Display lots of feedback.
--version Show version information.
--help Show usage and basic help information.

EXAMPLES

Creates a new PO template from source code, and name it foo.pot:




intltool-update --pot --gettext-package=foo


Updates translation file xy.po using existing po template called "bar.pot", and writes output into "xy1.po":




intltool-update --dist --gettext-package=bar --output-file=xy1.po xy


Creates new PO template and updates translation file xy.po (xy.po is overwritten with new content):




intltool-update xy


(same as intltool-update --pot && intltool-update --dist xy)

FILES

po/POTFILES.in Contains list of source files which contain translatable strings, one file per line.
po/POTFILES.skip
po/POTFILES.ignore (obsolete) Contains list of source files which should be ignored when searching for translatable strings.
