Great, Tibi!

Etoys used a translation system different from gettext until now. All  
the translations that are in there use Squeak's own translation  
mechanism. You could use that - press Alt-Shift-W to bring up a menu  
and select open... - Language editor.

However, we are working on switching to gettext to make it simpler  
for others to contribute translations:


We already can generate .pot files, but are not completely satisfied  
with the results yet:

Takashi, I just notice that all the tile commands are missing,  
perhaps because these are no literal senders of #translated?

Tibi, I'd ask you to wait a bit on the translations. If you want to  
start now, use the old tools, or work off the .pot files I attached,  
but be prepared that these will change soon (they will be merged to  
fewer files).

Thank you!
