Hi there,

If you download the source code, you will find that each translatable .c file has an associated .pot file, which is an empty translation file. When the strings have been translated, they get saved as .po file in a language-specific subdirectory. For example

src/programs/foo.c (source code)
src/programs/foo.pot (empty translation template)
src/programs/pl/foo.po (translated to Polish)

And you can submit the .po files back to us for inclusion in the package. Hope that makes sense.

We'll need to add ISO-8859-2 for you, so things can display properly. When you have translations ready, I can sort out the keyboard mapping and font stuff.

What about Polish Language? I can help you guys to translate to polish as well free of charge. That would be nice for my polish friends.

Will do Liss. I'll generate the PO files as one of the final steps. I'm planning to switch everything over to UTF-8 with 0.9, which mostly only affects the fonts though - with the PO files it's as simple as choosing the 'save as' format.
