NAME

       pomigrate2 - Migrates PO files from an old version using new POT files.

SYNOPSIS

       pomigrate [options] from to new-templates

       Where  from is a directory of existing PO files, to is the directory where the migrated PO
       files will be stored, and new-templates is the directory that  contains  the  PO  Template
       files.

DESCRIPTION

       pomigrate2  aims  to  move  an  existing  translation to a new version based on updated PO
       Template files automatically without user intervention.  Therefore it is  ideal  for  when
       you  are  migrating  many  languages  or  migrating from related but divergent products eg
       Mozilla to Firefox.

OPTIONS

       -F, --use-fuzzy-matching
              use fuzzy algorithms when merging to attempt to match strings

       -C, --use-compendium
              create and use a compendium built from the migrating files

       -C, --use-compendium=some-compendium.po
              use an external compendium during the migration

       --no-wrap
              do not wrap long lines

       --locale
              set locale for newly born files

       -q, --quiet
              suppress most output

       -p, --pot2po
              use pot2po(1) instead of msgmerge(1) to migrate (you cannot use compendia)

OPERATION

       pomigrate2 makes use of the Gettext tools msgmerge or Translate Toolkits pot2po to perform
       its merging tasks.

       It firstly finds all files with the same name and location in the from directory as in the
       new-template directory and copies these to the to directory. If there is no  file  in  the
       from  directory  to  match one needed by the new-template directory then it will msgcat(1)
       all files in the from  directory  with  the  same  name  and  copy  them  to  the  correct
       destination  in  the  to  directory.  If  all  of  that  fails  then msginit(1) is used to
       initialise any missing PO files.

       Lastly all the files in <to> are merged  using  msgmerge(1)  or  pot2po(1).  This  process
       updates  the files to match the layout and messages in new-templates. Optionally, by using
       --use-compendium, a compendium of all the translations in from can be created to  be  used
       in the final merge process.
