Localization - translate Noosfero in your language

Noosfero uses the widely adopted GetText infrastructure, so its easily translatable for the huge collection of languages in this world.

Helping with an existing translation

Look for your language in the repository, download noosfero.po and/or noosfero-doc.po from the appropriate directory, translate, and send it back to us in the development mailing list. (if you want to contribute to Noosfero it is nice to join to the mailing list)

Adding a new language

Basically what you must do is to download noosfero.pot and noosfero-doc.pot, rename them to noosfero.po and noosfero-doc.po respectively, translate, and send back to us in the development mailing list. (if you want to contribute to Noosfero is nice to join to the mailing list)

Translating

You may translate noosfero.pot with any plain text editor (like gEdit for GNU/Linux or Windows) following the GetText pattern. Or you may use a GUI program to do this, like Gtranslator or Lokalize.

New translators will probably find the following readings to be useful:

  • PO files, from GNU gettext documentation. Describes the file format of the translation files. (only useful if you do not use a GUI program to translate)
  • GNU gettext at Wikipedia
