Working with man page translations

Add a new .po file

To enable a new .po file, add its basename (in fact, the language code), to the first line of po4a.cfg:

[po4a_langs] de es fr pl uk

It is not crucial to sort the entries alphabetically, but do it anyway for better readability.

Update the template and create translated files

This is done in one step using the following simple command:

po4a po4a.cfg

If there's something wrong with a .po file, the command will fail. In any case, have a look at the first line of po4a.cfg if all of the mentioned files are present.

To the man page authors: Please don't forget to add your new man page to po4a.cfg!
