[Gambas-user] A curious thing happens with translations.

I think this topic is important and it would be interesting that 
somewhere be possible configure, when you open the translation form, the 
default language to be set as the neutral language, in this case common 
Then, when creating a new project it always defaults to US English, I 
think it should be common English since something similar to Spanish 
happens to the English language, a language that is spoken in many 
countries and each one has its variants.
I am trying to make a program in gambas3 that translates all the 
programs in the directory that is passed as parameter but I find things 
that in my opinion could be standardized.
I mean standardize in the sense that you can take advantage of the 
knowledge generated in the translations of other programs in an 
intelligent way.
translate-shell blocks translations after 20 or 30 translation attempts 
(I don't know exactly the number) so in practice it doesn't serve as a 
translation method for the whole program.
But... What happens if we manage to reduce the list to translate? that's 
where the knowledge of other programs that we have in our home comes in. 
many phrases that are already translated in other programs could 
alleviate the translation list and thus make the access to 
translate-shell not to be blocked.
For all this to be possible, I think, the first option has to be the 
common language for the case of languages like English or Spanish "xx.po".
