Ignored words

In writing out dates in common forms, there are a number of words that are typically not important.

There is frequently a word that appears in a phrase to designate that a time is going to be specified next. In English, you would use the word AT in the example:

December 3 at 12:00

The following words may be used:

klokken
kl
kl.

Another word is used to designate one member of a set. In English, you would use the words IN or OF:

1st day OF December
1st day IN December

The following words may be used:

om

Another word is use to specify that something is on a certain date. In English, you would use ON:

ON July 5th

The following words may be used:

pa
på

Words that set the date, time, or both

There are some words that can be used to specify a date, a time, or both relative to now.

Words that set the date are similar to the English words ’yesterday’ or ’tomorrow’. These are specified as a delta which is added to the current time to get a date. The time is NOT set however, so the delta is only partially used (it should only include year, month, week, and day fields).

The following words may be used:

idag 0:0:0:0:0:0:0
igar −0:0:0:1:0:0:0
igÃ¥r −0:0:0:1:0:0:0
imorgen +0:0:0:1:0:0:0

Words that set only the time of day are similar to the English words ’noon’ or ’midnight’.

The following words may be used:

midnat 00:00:00
midt pa dagen 12:00:00
midt på dagen 12:00:00

Words that set the entire time and date (relative to the current time and date) are also available.

In English, the word ’now’ is one of these.

The following words may be used:

nu 0:0:0:0:0:0:0

Hour/Minute/Second separators

When specifying the time of day, the most common separator is a colon (:) which can be used for both separators.

Some languages use different pairs. For example, French allows you to specify the time as 13h30:20, so it would use the following pairs:

: :
h :

The first column is the hour-minute separator and the second column is the minute-second separator. Both are perl regular expressions. When creating a new translation, be aware that regular expressions with utf−8 characters may be tricky. For example, don’t include the expression ’[x]’ where ’x’ is a utf−8 character.

A pair of colons is ALWAYS allowed for all languages. If a language allows additional pairs, they are listed here:

\. :

Fractional second separator

When specifying fractional seconds, the most common way is to use a decimal point (.). Some languages may specify a different separator that might be used. If this is done, it is a regular expression.

The decimal point is ALWAYS allowed for all languages. If a language allows another separator, it is listed here:

Not defined in this language
