4.12.1 Localizing the topbanner Image
If you’d like the nice gnu image to be localized (i.e. “GNU Operating
System” to appear in your native language, here are the steps:
- Copy graphics/topbanner.svg as
graphics/topbanner.lang.svg where lang is the
language code, as usual. Edit the file with Inkscape or with a plain
text editor such as GNU Emacs, translating “GNU Operating System”.
Then with Inkscape, save the file as
graphics/topbanner.lang.png (File -> Export Bitmap…).
Then open the PNG image with the GIMP and flatten it (Image -> Flatten
Image). Don’t forget to save and
cvs add the files8.
- Create a style.lang.css at the toplevel directory, if it
doesn’t exist already. Normally, you would need only one line in it,
- If not done already for other reasons, update
banner.lang.html to include the language specific
style.lang.css. See CSS.
