moderated Re: Translating scripts from one language into another


JSM files can be opened and edited in a text editor like Notepad. and of course the Script Manager can also be used to modify JSM files since it comes with JAWS.

do not use a word processor like Word or Wordpad. you want to use a program that does not process text, thus leaving anomalies when saving the edited file.

hi Norman,

I understand, but how do I actually  open  the .jsm file?

when translating scripts, there is not really a single software you're
going to use, since most scripts have multiple messages and usage
hints accross various files.

Most scripts will use .jsm files containing the strings to be
localised, while some messages may also be contained in .jsd
documentation files (keyboard help with JAWSKey+1).

Doug lee has worked with a lot of folks so he knows how to structure
his files such that they're not too hard to translate.

Look for quotation marks with messages that are spoken or Brailled
while using a particular programme.

Not sure if that was remotely helpful, that's all I know from some of
my projects, though.
