Generated CMakeLists.txt file should enable i18n for translations enabled (qsTrId) projects




      Summary of the issue

      It's quite hard for developer to come up with the way to activate the translations edited in the translations editor in QDS to the other development environment such as Qt Creator. It's better the CMakeLists.txt file QDS generates automatically includes the function to include the edited translations.  If adding the function to CMakeLists.txt is hard, it’s better to document how to do it somewhere.

      About how to enable the translations, following is an example code snippet of CMakeLists function I can see it works. (English and Japanese translation are included in the QDS project).

          RESOURCE_PREFIX Main/i18n
          LRELEASE_OPTIONS -idbased

      Reproducible steps

      1. Create a QDS project (Qt 6.2 or later for the target).
      2. Change every qsTr based texts to qsTrId based texts. 
      3. By using Translations editor panel, add testing environment's native language to the project's language and add translations to each translation IDs by using the editor.
      4. Press translation editor panel's generate .ts and .qm button to generate .ts (and .qm) files for generating the translation files.
      5.  Press live preview button and make sure the translation works.
      6. Generate CMakeLists.txt file for the project through "File" -> "Export Project" -> "Generator CMakeLists.txt build files..."
      7. Open the CMakeLists.txt file through QtCreator
      8. Build and test the project through QtCreator 

      Expected behavior

      Translated texts are displayed in the app.

      Actual behavior

      TextIds are displayed in the app.


      There are miltiple inconsistency for multi-language support in Qt6. I took a note for it.
