I have noticed that not many of you submitted MythWeb translation files
possibly because there was almost no documentation on how this should be
I have added some information on how to do this on
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Translation. Some of that information came
from the translations.txt file in MythWeb lang directory, other came
from the information already given for the rest of the translation files
and finally some of which came from my own experience creating and
As question arises I will be adding information or modifying some of the
information already provided but it should provide you with a good idea
of what is involved in making a MythWeb translation & I believe enough
information to start working on one.
For some sections I referred to this mailing list (how to add a new
language, the category files) because I am not yet quite sure how much
information should be given on how to do this and/or I don't think the
translation page is the best place to explain it (for example the
categories regular expressions).
There are quite a few strings to translate but some of them are similar,
short or don't require as much research to find the appropriate
translation (for example acronyms such as HDTV probably have acronyms
you are already quite familiar with in your mother tongue (e.g. in
French you would say TVHD)) so you could probably have one completed
before the RCs (or at least the last one)...
Thank you very much for all the great work all of you have done!
