how to build the help files from existing html ?

The script we used when migrating to gettext-based documentation failed to extract, save, and reuse the glossary translations, I did never find out why. :-(

From this older post I understand that the documentation is now in gettext format (?) and that there is/was an utility to convert an existing html text to gettext (?).

Where can I find more details about this ?

There is someone who has translated the 2.6.x in Romanian as html http://gimp.e3.ro/
(less the translated snapshots)

He is now ready to update the text to suit 2.8. What is the way he must go on ?

No. If I remember correctly, that script converted our multi-language XML-files to several single-language XML-files of exactly the same structure, e.g.

old-doc.xml -----------

...


...


...

etc.

was converted to

en/new-doc.xml xx/new-doc.xml yy/new-doc.xml etc. -------------- -------------- --------------
... ... ...

and then these XML-files were converted to po-files.

Hmm, no idea right now... :-(
