Review PO file

As a reviewer, tools to help you doing the job aren't very present, and the current Transifex installation doesn't ease the task either.

When someone sends you a newly translated PO file and you want to check the differences you will need a tool to show you only the changed messages. Hereby you will find a quick-n-dirty shell script that uses basic commands.

The script

#!/bin/sh
PO_ORIG=$1
PO_REVIEW=$2
PO_TEMPL=$3
 
MSGMERGE=msgmerge
DIFF=diff
PAGER=more
RM=/bin/rm
MKTEMP=mktemp
 
# Usage
if test "$1" = "" -o "$2" = "" -o "$3" = ""; then
    echo Usage: $0 orig.po review.po template.pot
    exit 1
fi
 
# Merge
TMP_ORIG=`$MKTEMP po-orig.XXX`
TMP_REVIEW=`$MKTEMP po-review.XXX`
$MSGMERGE $PO_ORIG $PO_TEMPL > $TMP_ORIG 2> /dev/null
$MSGMERGE $PO_REVIEW $PO_TEMPL > $TMP_REVIEW 2> /dev/null
 
# Diff
$DIFF -u $TMP_ORIG $TMP_REVIEW | $PAGER
 
# Clean up files
$RM $TMP_ORIG $TMP_REVIEW

Example

$ cd xfce4-settings/po
$ msgdiff.sh
Usage: msgdiff.sh orig.po review.po template.pot
$ msgdiff.sh fr.po 127.fr.po xfce4-settings.pot
