Marek - having a tool would be great, but I'm worried about how much
effort it would be, unless there's something out there already.
the property files and CRUD operations around properties is
quite an easy task.
A bit more challenging is checking git history. However I've tried some
playing with jgit  and it works fine to read the git history of some
file and see the diff of changes, which are newer than some particular
timestamp. So the fact that translation messages will be in different
repository than messages_en.properties is not an issue. Translator can
then just run something like:
mvn exec:java -Ptranslate
The disadvantage is, that translator will need sources of both keycloak
repository with english locale and the translations repository, so tool
is able to read git history. However I am not seeing very big issue, as
currently all translators needs to have keycloak sources anyway to being
able to send PRs.
My guess to do some tool like that could be around 2 working days.
Thomas - for now you can send a PR to main repository with the
translation if you are happy to be maintainer for the translation.

Not directly related, but IMO we can potentially improve the
experience for translators/maintainers and create some tool, which
will simplify their work. This can result in better experience for
them and hence more contributions for more languages.
IMO it is currently a bit of pain to maintain the translation and
manually check if there were some recent changes in english file
"messages_en.properties" and then adding/updating them to my
locale (assume it's messages_es.properties) . So I am wondering
that we will have a tool (or maybe we can reuse some already
existing tool), which will:
- Check the last github revision of my "messages_es.properties"
file. Let's assume this is revision XY
- Then check english locale file "messages_en.properties" and look
for all the commits newer than XY
- The tool will automatically remove all the keys from
"messages_es.properties", which were in the meantime removed from
- Then tool will create/update the key/value pairs in
"messages_es.properties" for all the keys, which were added or
updated in the meantime in "messages_en.properties" .
So assume that in messages_en.properties you added the key:
then in messages_es.properties, the tool will generate something like:
So the translator will be just required to check the keys with
<TRANSLATE_ME> and translate them to his language like:
Note that translator doesn't need to manually check what was added
or updated in the meantime. He is also not required to
continuously switch between messages_en.properties and
messages_es.properties and compare what is the english translation
for "greetings.key" etc.
Having separate repositories will be good, on the other hand it
may complicate things if we want to have some tool like I
mentioned above (but maybe not, if it's able to work with times of
