Translate Stoq into a new language
This page describes the necessary steps to translate Stoq into a new language.
Stoq uses gettext, which is a GNU utility to make programs translatable. What you need to do is to translate a couple of POT files which contains the english strings used by Stoq into your own language.
There are four of them:
- kiwi.pot: link to kiwi.pot
- stoqdrivers.pot: link to stoqdrivers.pot
- stoqlib.pot: link to stoqlib.pot
- stoq.pot: link to stoq.pot
Stoqlib is by far the largest one. Stoqdrivers is mostly necessary in Brazil, as it contains strings related to equipment mostly necessary there. It's not very important to translate that one to your own language at the moment.
Download the files you want to translate. Open them in a program such as gtranslator or just a normal text editing problem (gedit,vim,notepad). When you're done, send them to by mail to stoq-devel (at) async.com.br.
