Main page for localisation is Translation help to improve this page



First of all package creator/maintainer have to create *.pot file with all messages included. Search for this files in source tree and you can edit them.


Rule of thumb: It's better to have some translation than nothing, so feel free to translate.


There are specialised tools for *.pot (*.po) files edition gtranslator, po4a, poedit, pootle, potool ...

Most of text editors will fit also: vim, emacs, ed ...


TODO: descript SVN update after editing (See: To-Do List)


  • Encoding for *.po is UTF-8
  • Most of packages in Openembedded tree allready iternationalised, its worth to review them
