Localization in THL is the translation of application interfaces into Tibetan, Chinese, and Dzongkha so that the website interface is in those languages.
For each Rails application, there is a separate .yaml file for the Tibetan, Dzongkha, and Chinese translations of the interface. These files are stored in GITHUB along with the Rails code.
Andres has developed a sequence of search-and-replaces that when run on a spreadsheet file transform it into a .yaml file. He needs to document this process (https://issues.shanti.virginia.edu/jira/browse/THLTRANS-105).
For each app, there is a separate XML file for Tibetan, Chinese, and Dzongkha translations. THL Frame page has its own file of translations. THL Index, Show Menu/Hide Menu in green navbar, and name in banner are images.
Than has developed a way to export translations from a spreadsheet into an XML file. He needs to document this.
