Anyone want to help privacytools.io with some somewhat tedious tasks? 😆

I'm trying to add i18n support to the site so we can get some translations up! But it means I need pretty much every English string to be copied to a separate file to be translated. Info @ github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv

@jonah, I can help. can you give permission to me to check in? I made a small edit to browser-addon.html and the en.yml. If that is correct I'll keep at it.

my git hub ID is @yeet647.

@Yeet can't find your account: github.com/yeet647 (?)

Do you know how the pull request functionality works? If so you can submit PRs to the i18n branch on the repo and I'll merge them in ASAP 😃

@Yeet seems like it! I'm not actually able to add users to push to this repository but if you do your work in a fork I can merge your commits in to the branch 😃

@jonah - hey, thanks for patience. I'm new to this.

Check out change below and make sure I have the pattern correct. If so I will continue my cut and paste mastery to support the cause.

github.com/yeet648/privacytool

@Yeet 🙏 Thanks! Two quick things. 1) I want to use underscores instead of dashes/spaces in en.yml. 2) I forgot to mention and this is my bad but the {%t tags don't actually work in the include cards.

Take a look at what I did here to work around that (github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv) and then here (github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv) and tell me if that makes any sense to you. I'll add that info to the issue page.

@jonah thanks for the example. I think I got it and will give this another try.

@Yeet I updated the issue if that's more helpful at all. Otherwise this is fantastic! Thank you for helping out 😃 I would have been very sad if I had to do *everything* myself lol

@jonah I wrapped up browser-addons page - github.com/yeet648/privacytool

What is best way for me to notify you as I complete additional pages?

I'll keep fetching from the i18n branch to pick up other changes

@Yeet thank you! You’re wonderful lol

You can either leave a comment on this issue and I’ll handle it when I get a chance:
github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv

Or, you can open a Pull Request here:
github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv (when you do so, make sure you change the branch from “master” to “i18n” at the top, like the screenshot in my issue).

@jonah hi - can you update issue 1106 with the pages that still need to strings replaced with tokens? I'm ready to support the cause with my copy/paste skills.

i see some of the pages, like android add on, are makred as needed tokens in the issue check list, but the source file looks like it's already been tokenized.

Follow

@Yeet updated! I think that was the only one that hadn't been checked off. I'll also bring the i18n branch up-to-date with master in a couple minutes.
