Passolo addin for Qt®

We proudly present the advanced SDL Passolo parser for Qt®. It supports the TS file format and provides previews for UI files.


Qt® is a registered trademark of Digia.

Main characteristics:

  • reliable update and alignment process.
  • unique string identifiers.
  • support of numerus forms.
  • supports variants for translations.
  • preview capabilities for .ui files.

So, why not use an XML parser to parse TS files? This is possible as long as you do not use numerus forms and variants. However, it is not an ideal situation, because TS is not suitable for frequent project updates. In summary, an XML parser does not support the following:

  • Numerus forms. Qt will select the appropriate form (e.g. singular, plural or paucal) based on a value. The rules are complex and language specific. A standard XML parser will concatenate all forms to one string, messing up the project.
    The editor shall only present the relevant forms per language. When ready, the tool shall generates target TS files with the appropriate numerus forms for that language.
  • A string in a TS file may have variants, such as a short and long form. Qt will select the translation that fits, based on the available control size. Similar to numerus forms, an XML parser will concatenate all variants to one string, messing up the project.
    The editor shall present each variant. When ready, the tool shall generates target TS files with each translated variant.
  • Missing string identifiers. Strings in TS files often do not have unique string identifiers. It is not possible to do a reliable alignment, because a different sorting order of strings in the translated file will result in misalignments.

You will earn back the investment of our Passolo addin for Qt®.
