Qt Linguist Manual: TS File Format

[Previous: Qt Linguist Manual: Programmers][Qt Linguist Manual]

The .ts file format used by Qt Linguist is described by the DTD presented below, which we include for your convenience. Be aware that the format may change in future Qt releases.

 ! Some notes to the DTD:
 ! The location element is set as optional since it was introduced first in Qt 4.2.
 ! The userdata element is set as optional since it was introduced first in Qt 4.4.
 ! Macro used in order to escape byte entities not allowed in an xml document
 ! for instance, only #x9, #xA and #xD are allowed characters below #x20.
<!ENTITY % evilstring '(#PCDATA | byte)*' >
<!ATTLIST byte
          value CDATA #REQUIRED>
<!ELEMENT TS (defaultcodec?, context+) > 
          version CDATA #IMPLIED
          language CDATA #IMPLIED>
<!ELEMENT defaultcodec (#PCDATA) >
<!ELEMENT context (name, comment?, extracomment?, message+) > 
<!ATTLIST context
          encoding CDATA #IMPLIED>
<!ELEMENT name %evilstring; >
<!ELEMENT comment %evilstring; >
<!ELEMENT oldcomment %evilstring; >
<!ELEMENT translatorcomment %evilstring; >
<!ELEMENT extracomment %evilstring; >
<!ELEMENT message (location*, source, oldsource?, comment?, oldcomment?, extracomment?, translatorcomment?, translation, userdata?) >
<!ATTLIST message
          encoding CDATA #IMPLIED
          numerus (yes|no) "no">
<!ELEMENT location EMPTY>
<!ATTLIST location 
          filename CDATA #REQUIRED
          line CDATA #REQUIRED>
<!ELEMENT source %evilstring;>
 ! The following should really say one evilstring macro or several numerusform elements, 
 ! but the DTD can't express this. 
<!ELEMENT translation (#PCDATA|byte|numerusform)* >
<!ATTLIST translation
          type (unfinished|obsolete) #IMPLIED
          encoding CDATA #IMPLIED>
<!ELEMENT userdata (#PCDATA)* >
<!ELEMENT numerusform %evilstring; >
