Images in the user manual
Submitted by Mario Blättermann
currently I'm translating the Shotwell user manual. There is an image named »trash_process.png« which contains translatable strings. But it's a PNG file, which makes translations almost impossible.
Obviously the PNG file has been created from a vector graphics image. Due to the nature of such files, it would be much easier to replace the text parts by their corresponding translations. Would be really helpful for us to add your vector graphics source (whatever the file format is) to the help/C/figures folder in the Git repo.
One step further (for the future): SVG files are text files. So it would be possible to fetch the relevant text parts from this file using an appropriate gettext tool and put the translations back into the localized SVG file. Well, for the time being I don't know how this could work, but I'm quite sure I've already read about it somewhere.
