Win32::TRADOS::Languages - Simplifies working with TRADOS Registry values
TRADOS 2007 is a fantastically useful tool for the professional translator that is used on Windows. Somewhere back in its history, it was decided to permit the Freelancer version of the tool to install only five languages at once, and that has remained a technical limitation of the tool - the official recommendation of SDL (the current owners of the software) is to de-install and re-install the entire package if the five installed languages need to be changed. (To be fair, I wouldn't want to provide the technical support for any other method, either.)
However, they are all encoded in a single Registry key; this module contains a table of values for the numeric codes used in that key with their ISO codes, and also some simple tools for reading and writing the key. This saves a lot of time in de-installing and re-installing the package for those of us who work with more than five languages.
A command-line script ttx-lang is also included that exposes the functionality to the command line in a convenient manner.
Reads the value of the Registry key in question. Doesn't require elevated privileges, as it obtains only read access to the Registry to do this. Croaks if it can't find the key.
Sets the IDNG key to the value supplied. Requires elevated privileges. Croaks if it doesn't have them.
Given an IDNG value, extracts the numeric language codes from it. Returns a list of the languages encoded. Croaks if the IDNG doesn't look like an IDNG key.
Given an IDNG value and one to five language codes, builds and returns a new IDNG key. Croaks if the IDNG key given doesn't look like an IDNG key.
Given a TRADOS numeric language code, idng2iso looks up its ISO equivalent in the table of values. idng2lang also calls code2language to convert that ISO code into the name of the language. Has a little more logic to build values that are more appropriate to the TRADOS language list.
Given an ISO code, iso2idng looks for it in the table of numeric values. Returns undef if it can't find it there. lang2idng calls language2code first, and also includes some other logic: returns '84' ("invalid language") for an undefined language or '--', passes hex codes through unaffected, and converts ISO codes directly if they're passed. This is your best bet to make sense of user input.
