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.
Checkout the svn version
Go to the
mythtv/i18n directory. All remaining steps will be done in this directory.
Update translation files
lupdate translate.pro. This will ensure that all translatable strings in the source code are included in the
.ts file we will work on later.
Translate .ts file, e.g. 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).
After restarting the frontend, you can test your translations. If all is OK you can proceed.
svn diff mythfrontend_de.ts > translation.diff
