Apache::MP3::L10N - base class for Apache::MP3 interface localization




This module is the base class for generating language handles (via Locale::Maketext) which Apache::MP3 (and subclasses) use for presenting their interface.

To localize this for your language of choice, see the source for Apache/L10N/ for an example lexicon that should contain all the English phrases, and an example French translation.

For example, if you're localizing this to Swahili, you'd copy Apache/L10N/ to Apache/L10N/ (since I18N::LangTags::List tells us that sw is the language tag for Swahili), and change its package Apache::MP3::L10N::fr; line to package Apache::MP3::L10N::sw;, and then you'd replace all the French phrases that are the values in %Lexicon with Swahili phrases.

For example, you'd change:

 'fetch'  => 'sauvegarder',


 'fetch'  => 'lete',

if you considered "lete" (from the infinitive "kuleta", haul) to be a good translation of the English "fetch" in that context.
