po files

These are used in UFO:AI to let people play the game in their own language. The number of languages available can be seen as a measure of the game's success.

compiling po files

via command-line

make lang

via gui

This must be done in order to play a bleeding edge version from the svn repository (at least with UFOpedia, intros, mail client, ... working properly).

  • get poEdit.[1]
  • find the *.po file for your chosen language. eg \trunk\src\po\fr.po for French.
  • save. poEdit defaults to compiling the po and saving a mo.
  • move and rename the mo to something like \trunk\base\i18n\fr\LC_MESSAGES\ufoai.mo. Again the fr directory here means this example is specific to French.
