Handles all new i18n in my design

Tuesday 31 July 2012 11:33:45 am - 3 replies


I have just finished the templating part in a project and I need to send all the fix text for translation to my customer (those handled by i18n).

But it is quite a pain in the *** to manually get them and make a list.

Is there any tool out there to manage those easily (as poedit make for wordpress)

Thank you everyone.

There is a command-line tool that will parse your .tpl files and produce the .ts xml file to send to translators. It's in the "support" folder, called ezlupdate.

It's a C app, you need the Qt libs to compile it.

Or you can search around for prebuilt binaries shared by someone else. I'm sure you will find a few links

This tool is ezlupdate. The sources are in your eZ project in :


You will need to install qmake, then compile the sources :


Now you should be able to generate the .ts file :

<PATH_TO_EZLUPDATE>ezlupdate --extension extension/<EXTENSION> --verbose <LANGUAGE>
bin/macosx/ezlupdate --extension extension/myextension --verbose eng-US

Hi guys,

Thank you for your reply. It is exactly what i needed.

I have never manipulated C but I am sure it will be ok.
