Translation tools and PO files
« on: May 18, 2007, 08:00:29 PM »
Hi, mates:

I would like to translate SMF and was thinking about using a collaborative translation tool such as Entrans or Pootle to allow a translation team to work with ease.
I 've browsed this forums but found no information about it. Those tools need Gettext's PO files, so I was wondering if someone has already generated PO files for SMF or used some collaborative translation tool.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your effort to translate SMF into another language. Personally I think it's better to translate it manually because many tools destroy the sense of the language strings which will make it more complicate for users to understand and use SMF.
