make_strings - tool to build lists of localizable strings from
make_strings [--help] [--verbose] [--aggresive-import] [--aggressive-
match] [--aggressive-remove] [-L languages] files.[hmc...]
make_strings parses Objective-C files and builds lists of localizable
strings. It then creates new .strings files or merges the strings with
existing .strings files. It’s fairly intelligent when matching old and
new strings, and produces .strings files that are (supposed to be) easy
for a translator to work with.
make_strings accepts the following options:
--help Prints a short list of available options.
Prints additional information while processing.
Specify which languages to process. Multuple -L options are
accepted, or multiple languages defined in one -L flag.
Activates --aggresive-match and automatically removes "dummy"
entries that are added by importing .strings files which were
not created by make_strings program. This option is suitable
when make_strings is run for the first time and there is an
existing .strings file which contains a fairly accurate
This option will make make_strings assume that matching keys
should have matching translations. This can save lots of work,
but it increases the risk of erroneous translation.
Removes obsolete strings/keys.
