=== Make the code translatable ===
+
-
 
+
-
* Import the gettext module
+
-
 
+
-
from gettext import gettext as _
+
-
 
+
-
* Mark strings as translatable using <tt>_('String')</tt>
+
-
 
+
-
self._forward.set_tooltip('''_('Forward')''')
+
-
 
+
-
=== Generate the POT file for translators ===
+
-
 
+
-
* You will need to generate it and push it in the repository every time you add strings. (XXX how do we automatize it)
+
-
 
+
-
./setup.py dist
+
-
 
+
-
=== Get your strings localized ===
+
-
 
+
-
* Open a new [http://dev.laptop.org/newticket Trac ticket], in the Localization component, specifying the source repository location.  You will need to include the following information (with examples):
+
-
** Module name (''Write'')
+
-
** Maintainer Name + Email (''Foo Bar / foo@foo.com'')
+
-
** Maintainer URL (''http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ChristopherBlizzard'')
+
-
** URL to your repository (i.e. ''http://dev.laptop.org/git.do?p=sugar;a=summary'')
+
-
 
+
-
Once that's done the people who [[Translators|care about localization]] can get the <tt>.pot</tt> files to translate and can contribute them back.

+
-
* Once your translation is ready open a new [http://dev.laptop.org/newticket Trac ticket], in the Localization component and '''attach''' your translation (as a <tt>.po</tt> file).  You will need an account ([http://dev.laptop.org/login login] or [http://dev.laptop.org/register register])
