With this utility, it is possible to upload files in formats such as QPH, TS, PO and XLF, as well as save them using the aforementioned extensions. You can release them as QMs, while printing items is also possible with just a click of the button.
The main window enables you to view the source text next to its translation, so that you can process the text in a more efficient fashion. In addition to that, it is possible to add comments and bring up statistics regarding the words and characters in the original file and the ones you have translated.
It is possible to undo or redo your actions, cut, copy and paste elements, as well as look for a specific item, use a search and translate function, as well as a batch translation one. You can go to the previous or next text, mark a translation as done, add words to the phrase book and enable validation for accelerators, ending punctuation, and phrase and marker matches.
Last but not least, it is possible to customize translation settings, in the sense that you can change the source and target language and country/region, with just a few clicks, by using the built-in drop-down menus.
To wrap it up, Qt Linguist is an efficient piece of software for Qt developers which are interested in translating their apps, without putting a strain on their computer’s performance. The tool encloses plenty of options to keep you busy for quite a while and you will not experience any kind of lag.
