Pseudo Translation

Use this dialog to turn on pseudo translation for the selected language.

Translation Scope

Specifies what part of column is translated. Possible values are:

All rows Translates all items in the column.
Only rows of the current view Translates only items that belong to the current view.

Select the pseudo translation type

Specifies the pseudo translation type. The possible values are:

Value Description
None No pseudo translation is used.
Emulation Original strings are modified to simulate the language. This type checks if the user interface works with the script of the language.
For example if the selected language is using a latin script "Hello World" becomes to "Héllö Wörld".
Replace All characters of original strings are replaced with a replace character. This type helps to find hard coded strings.
For example "Hello World" becomes to "...........".
Reduce The length of the original string is reduced to one character. This character is either one specific character (e.g. '.') or the first character of the string. This type tests how the user interface works for minimum length strings.
For example "Hello World" becomes to "H".
Max translation Gets the longest value among the original and the translations of the row.

Depending on the above selection one or more following items are visible.

If Emulation is selected then Set predefined configuration combo box will be visible. Use it to quickly set pseudo settings into one of the predefined values.

Replace every character with the following character

Type the character that is used with the replace pseudo translation type when replacing characters.

This items is used when a replace type is selected.

Reduction

The reduce pseudo translation type has to two variation. They are:

Value Description
Remove every character from the string but the first one The original string is reduced to a one character string containing the first character of the string.
Replace strings with the following string The original string is replaced with the given string.

This items is used when a reduce type is selected.

The following items are used only when the language is a European language.

Case

Specifies how the case of the string is changed. Possible values are:

Value Description
No change Case is not changed
Alternate The case of every character is changed from lower to upper or from upper to lower.
For example "Hello world" becomes "HeLlO WoRlD".
Upper The case of every character is changed to upper.
For example "Hello world" becomes "HELLO WORLD".

Methods

Specifies how the string is modified. Possible values are:

Value Description
Diacritics Diacritics are added to the characters. This method tests the ability of the user interface to handle correctly diacritic and accented characters that are used in most European languages.
For example "Hello World" becomes "Héllö Wörld".
Expand String is expanded. This method can be used to test that the user interface handles longer translations correctly. It is usual that English worlds are shorter than their translations. The expansion amount depends on the length of the original string. Use Expand percentage to control the length of the expansion.
For example "Hello World" becomes "Hello World________X".
Enclose String is enclosed. The default enclode characters are braces ({ and }). This can be used to test that both the beginning and the end of the string are visible.
For example "Hello World" becomes "{Hello World}".

Enclose characters

Specifies what enclose character are used. This is enabled when the Enclose check box in the Methods group is checked. Possible characters are:

Value Description
Begin Specifies the begin character.
End Specifies the end character.

Expand characters

Specifies what expand character are used. This is enabled when the Expand check box in the Methods group is checked. Possible characters are:

Value Description
Expand Specifies the expand character.
Last Specifies the last character.

Expand percentage

Specifies the expansion percentage. Expand percentage is enabled if the Expand check box in the Methods group is checked. Different percentages are used for different string lengths. The following table contains the expansion percentages:

Value Description
1...5 Specifies the expand percentage when the length of the original string is between 1 and 6 characters.
6...10 Specifies the expand percentage when the length of the original string is between 6 and 10 characters.
11...20 Specifies the expand percentage when the length of the original string is between 11 and 20 characters.
21...30 Specifies the expand percentage when the length of the original string is between 21 and 30 characters.
31...50 Specifies the expand percentage when the length of the original string is between 31 and 50 characters.
over 50 Specifies the expand percentage when the length of the original string is over 50 characters.

The default expansion percentage values may seem a bit high in the first sight. It is true that most translations are only slightly longer than the original English word. However there are exceptions. The exceptions in different languages are different. There is no way to predict when the expansion is really going to happed. That why it is good to prepare for worst.

For example the English word "red" is only three characters but its Finnish translation "punainen" is eight characters!

Context

Specifies if a context part or unique id should be added into pseudo translated strings. Possible characters are:

Value Description
Do not add context value to translation Do not add context or id part into the pseudo translated value.
Add context value after translation Add context after the value.
Add context value before translation Add context before the value.
Add unique id value before translation Add unique number before the value.

Before specifies the string that is added before the pseudo translated value.
Separator specifies the string that is added separate context/id and the value.
After specifies the string that is added after the pseudo translated value.
