Development of Lagrange Points Tools

Post requests, images, descriptions and reports about work in progress here.

How do you use the Lagrange Point addon, and what enhancements would you like?

I do not use the addon.

I would find the proposed labeling script useful.

Sorry guys, but a few more translations needed for (it) (nl) and (ru).

Might be best to PM translations to me as this thread is just getting filled up with translations... (let's keep it tidy). :wink:

The latest round of never ending translations is for the following phrases:
["ERROR"]
["Nothing selected - Please select a valid object."]
["Selected Object must be a Planet, DwarfPlanet, Moon, or Asteroid."]
["Selected System Object must be a Planet, DwarfPlanet, or the Sun."]
Many thanks,
CC

As version 1.1 is close to release, here are the latest translations files.
Currently French, Italian, Dutch, and Russian translations are in-progress, thanks to Jogad, Fenerit, Marco, and and Margarita (and possibly new volunteer Alex) :) .

If you are multilingual with a good grasp of English and would like to use this tool in your native language, as well as make it accessible to others in that language, then please consider providing a translation.
All that's required is substitution of the appropriate words and phrases of your own language in the 2 files below...

Substitute the words and phrases in "quotes" to the right of the "=" sign:

Code: Select all

lp_loc_str = {
   ["Lagrange Points"] = "Points de Lagrange";
   ["by"]            = "by";
   ["Selected"]       = "S?lectionn?";
   ["System"]          = "Syst?me";
   ["Sub-Objects"]    = "Sous-objets";
   ["Mode"]          = "Mode";
   ["Labels"]          = "?tiquettes";   
   ["Marks"]          = "Marqueurs";   
   ["Clear"]          = "Effacer";
   ["Clear All"]       = "Effacer tout";
   ["Reset"]          = "R?init.";
   ["Verbose"]       = "Complet";   
   ["Concise"]       = "Concis";   
   ["ERROR"]         = "Erreur";
   ["Please select a valid object."]                               = "s?lectionnez un objet valide svp";
   ["Selected Object must be a Planet, DwarfPlanet, Moon, or Asteroid."]    = "l'objet s?lectionn? doit ?tre une plan?te, une plan?te naine, une lune ou un ast?ro?de";
   ["Selected Object must be a Planet, DwarfPlanet, or the Sun."]          = "l'objet s?lectionn? doit ?tre une plan?te, une plan?te naine ou le Soleil";
   ["In 'System' mode the selected Object must be a Planet, DwarfPlanet, or the Sun."]   = "??????? l'objet s?lectionn? doit ?tre une plan?te, une plan?te naine ou le Soleil"
   ["meta-stable"]      = "m?tastable";
   ["unstable"]      = "instable";
   ["Orrery"]         = "?????";
}


Replace the English words and phrases between the [[ ]]'s to the right of the "=" sign with their equivalents in your language:

i_welcome_note6      =

Lagrange points are locations in space where the combined gravitational pull of two large
masses matches the centripetal force required to orbit with them. They were discovered by
French mathematician Louis Lagrange in 1772 in his gravitational studies of the
‘Three body problem’: how a third, small body would orbit around two orbiting large ones.
]]

i_welcome_note7      = [[
There are five Lagrangian points in the Sun-Earth system (and such points also exist in the
Earth-Moon system).  Two of these, L4 and L5 (the 'trojan' points) are generally stable,
which means that theoretically, a tiny object such as a spacecraft (or station) can exist in
a quasi-periodic 'Lissajous Orbit' in the region indefinitely, without expenditure of fuel.
]]

i_exiting         = [[Exiting]]
