  • Hello,


    nice idee, as a matter of course are other language like klingon also possible :
    it's must be only generated and translated.


    See also XXV/locale/README


    This used translation system use the same functionality as GNU gettext does,
    it's use module Locale::gettext. on debian liblocale-gettext-perl


    Howto add new translation
    -------------------------
    *) Edit Makefile and add on target your my_language.po and my_language.pot filename
    *) Call "#> make clean", to force rebuild dependencies
    *) Call "#> make prepare", it's merge all gettext-entry on Modules
    for all *.po files (and your language.po file)
    *) Edit now my_language.po with your favored texteditor,
    leave field msgid "..." unedited,
    replace all fields msgstr "..." with your own translated text
    *) Call "#> make all" to convert language.po to GNU message catalog language.mo



    Select used language
    --------------------
    Your language will be select with your defined shell environment,
    as all messages from system are in your selected language
    export LANG="de_DE@euro"; ./xxvd ...



    Cheerio,
    Andreas
