I use as an example the German translation file. Dont forget to use it also for the plugins.

Note that the text shown in the menu screens are not generally located as described below, but are instead defined in XML files, e.g. mythtv/programs/mythfrontend/mainmenu.xml.

Checkout the svn version

svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythtv

Update translation files

Go to the mythtv directory and run lupdate. This will ensure that all translatable strings in the source code are included in the .ts file we will work on later.

Translate

Translate .ts file in the directory: i18n eg: i18n/mythfrontend_de.ts

You can use any editor for this, but it is most convenient to use the tool Linguist included in Qt (on Debian, this is found in the qt3-linguist package). linguist i18n/mythfrontend_de.ts

Compile translation

lrelease

After this you can test your translations in the Frontend. If all is OK you can proceed.

Create Diff

svn diff i18n/mythfrontend_de.ts >translation.diff

Submit the Patch

Submit the Diff to Oscar, via the URL: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/newticket
