2.2.1 How to Submit a Translation in PO Format

Since September 2008 all new translations at are installed in .po format, and the .html is generated automatically. Here are the steps to produce and submit such a translation:

It is quite possible that there will be errors or typos, so once you are informed that the translation is online, check it carefully and if necessary, resubmit the PO file with corrections.
