NAME

Handel::L10N - Localization module for Handel

SYNOPSIS

    use Handel::L10N qw(translate);
    
    warn translate('This is my message');

DESCRIPTION

This module is simply a subclass of Locale::Maketext. By default it doesn't export anything. You can either use it directly:

    use Handel::L10N;

    warn Handel::L10N::translate('My message');

You can also export translate into the callers namespace:

    use Handel::L10N qw/translate/;

    warn translate('My message');

If you have the time and can do a language, the help would be much appreciated. If you're going to email a translation module, please Gzip it first. It's not uncommon for an email server along the way to trash UTF-8 characters in the .pm attachment text.

There is also a t/l10n_lexicon_synced.t test that ensures that each lexicon has the same number of keys as the English version. Please make sure to run/update that test before submitting your lexicon.

FUNCTIONS

translate

Arguments: $message

Translates the supplied text into the appropriate language if available. If no match is available, the original text is returned.

    print translate('foo was here');
