ui5-translator CLI tool
I’ve always found it frustrating to have to maintain several i18n files by hand. Maybe when you need to support 2 languages is not a big deal. But when you have to support 4 or more, you can easily add the entry on the main i18n file but forget to update the said entry on the other i18n languages.
With this in mind I created a nodejs based CLI ui5-translator tool to ease the developer experience.
Just to give a demonstration of it’s features I created a test project. project2 using the basic Project Template on BAS.
To begin, run the installer on the root of the UI5 Application project.
The CLI tool will look for the i18n file on ./webapp/i18n/i18n.properties
npm install -g @facuferrer86/ui5-translator
Note: The CLI tool looks for translations on 3 sources:
- Previously created i18n files with already translated entries.
- SAP Translation HUB.
- Google Translator.
If it can’t find the prior it will look it on the following source.
All languages on iso639-2 are supported.
