We have a new QT4 interface and it needs to be in English. Discuss any issues here.

  • Check the English of all strings. Fix it. Have someone else do it again to be sure you didn't mess something up or make something too ambiguous.
  • There is no need to change error-output strings, as it is probably best that they remain in their original form so that they can still be found easily. If you find any repeated error-outputs (same text for different events), inform a developer.
  • If you find any code being sent to stderr via fprintf(stderr) rather than msg_Error, inform a developer (unless you know how to fix it).


  • subversion command for checking out just the QT4 code:

svn checkout svn://svn.videolan.org/vlc/trunk/modules/gui/qt4 QT4Strings


  • You can also use a nightly build to spot errors

What to do

  • jb says dialogs are free to work on at this point. --tonsofpcs 01:17, 27 June 2007 (CEST)
  • Menus and systray Menu too. jb 08:11, 27 June 2007 (CEST)
  • Menus, then main interface, then tooltips, then anything remaining. --tonsofpcs 02:34, 25 October 2007 (CEST) (via j-b on IRC)


  • When you begin working on a file, if necessary add it to the table, then assign your name to it. Once you finish it, mark it appropriately.
