Generic Twain Driver Mac Os X

This is a TWAIN datasource for MacOS X that aquires images using theSANE backend libraries. Helloap calculus. The SANE backend libraries provide access to alarge range of scanners connected through SCSI or USB. For a completelist see the documentation on the SANE project homepage. Itworks with my HP SCSI scanner, and many people have reported successwith a large number of different scanners. The feedback from usershave helped the SANE developers to fix problems with various backends,so with each release of the SANE backends more of the MacOS X specificproblems have been solved.

The TWAIN SANE interface is not a standalone application. It isdesigned to be used from within other applications. It works withapplications supporting the TWAIN specification, which includes mostapplications on Mac OS X that handles images. However using it withApple‘s Image Capture application has become increasingly tricky withevery version of Mac OS X. You will have an easier experience if youchoose any other application.

The TWAIN SANE Interface has been localized to the followinglanguages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian andSwedish. For most of the translation it relies on the localizationsupport in the SANE backend libraries.

If you want to provide localization support for a different language you arewelcome to do that. What you should do is the following:

  • You might want to check with me that I did not already recieve thelocalization for your language from someone else..
  • First check if there exists a file called/usr/local/share/locale/〈langcode〉/LC_MESSAGES/sane-backends.mocontaining the localizations for the SANE backend libraries for your language.If there is no such file you must first localize the SANE backend libraries.For more information about this see theSANE project homepage.
  • Download the TWAIN SANE Interface source code.
  • After unpacking the source tarball you will find in it a directory called src.In this directory there is one language project directory for each language(English.lproj, Swedish.lproj, etc.). In these directories there are two filescalled InfoPlist.strings and Localizable.strings.
  • You should create your own copy of these two files and change the translations.These files contain several lines of the type 'key' = 'value'. Do not changethe keys, but translate the values. Note that these files should be in theUTF-8 encoding.
  • There is also a set of language project files in the pkg/Resourcesdirectory. These contain localization files for the Installer called.If you want you can also provide localized versions of these. Thesefiles are also of the 'key' = 'value' type and should also be in theUTF-8 encoding.
  • Send the files to me, and I will include them in my next release.
