We all know Drupal and Symfony do have multilingual support (i18n, l10n, pluralization). But do they match? Or do they equally well? How does one test this? This is what I did.
I wanted to add tests for Symfonfy's PluralizationRules as there were none and I wanted to have support for PluralForms loading Drupals *.po files clean and simple. How hard can it be?!?
These tests should cover:
Langcodes. Are all known language codes available (or easy to add)?
One of the goals of Drupal 8 Multilingual Inititive is to refactor Gettext file handling by a component. The first effort was Make gettext .po generation its own abstracted functionality by Gábor Hojtsy, Sutharsan, fubhy, sun and clemens.tolboom
While I (clemens.tolboom) was working on that issue I skimmed over the Translation component delivered by Symfony to see whether we could match their architecture (why reinvent components?) or even take over their components.
Yesterday I ordered The definitive Guide to Drupal from the dutch online site comcol.nl. Awesome delivery.
I have to read the monster 1047 pages but decided to cut it two pieces as that split version is allowed on my desk.
