This plugin adds an additional dialog box in every page, which enables people to contribute localizations for the messages they are seeing in the current page. This reduces the barrier of entry to localization, and by showing messages in the context of a page, it should also improve the quality of the translation.

How does it work?

Browse any page of Hudson, and you'll a link in the footer section that opens the translation dialog.

Click this link, and you'll see an inline dialog box.

Choose the locale that you'd like to contribute, then type the translation text. The message follows the format of MessageFormat, and in particular,

  1. Markers like "{0}" and "{1}" represent the arguments
  2. Single quote (') needs to be escaped as two single-quote ('')
    Your name allows us to recognize your contributions and bypass manual review, especially when you've been contributing in the past. So do supply some unique string, even if it's not your real name.

    If you have an administrative access to the Hudson instance, your contributions will be reflected right away — just reload the page to see the effect. Your contributions are also sent to Hudson project for the inclusion in future versions of Hudson.
