[MonoDevelop] German translation
Fri, 02 Jul 2004 21:26:21 +0200
Hi. I just created a swedish translation by:
1. Downloading the tarball
2. Entering the po/ directory and running 'intltool-update --pot'
3. 'cp monodevelop.pot sv_SE.po'
4. Adding translated strings to sv_SE.po
5. 'intltool-update sv_SE'
6. Converting sv_SE.po to utf-8 by running
'msgconv -t UTF-8 sv_SE.po > sv_SE.po.new && mv sv_SE.po.new
7. Adding sv_SE to ALL_LINGUAS in configure.in
8. running ./configure and make (but not make install, I already have
monodevelop installed from an ebuild)
9. Creating a .mo file by running msgfmt -cv sv_SE.po and copying it
After this I thought I could test the translation by entering the
build/bin/ directory and running MonoDevelop.exe from there, but I
seemed to be wrong.
What do I have to do to test my translation? I noticed that no .gmo file
was created during any of the steps described above, has it got
something to do with that?
Hope I provided enough info for you to help me.
