How to translate Tagzania.com to your language

All you need to do is download the actual PO file in english, and translate it to your language.

PO files can be edited with any plain-text editor (avoid MS-Word, OpenOffice and similars). There are some PO file editing tools out there, but some of them could be modifying the headers of the file, so we prefer that you do it with your plain-text editor.

Please follow these steps

  1. Download the actual PO file here: Actual english PO file
  2. Open it with a plain text editor
  3. Substitute the text in english in the lines starting with "msgstr" with the needed translation:
  4. For example, this is the original text in english:

    msgid "general_idea_tried_adding_videos"
    msgstr "Have you tried adding videos?"

    This would be the translation to spanish

    msgid "general_idea_tried_adding_videos"
    msgstr "¿Has probado a agregar videos?"
  5. Send us back ( tagzania at gmail.com) your translated file, and that's it!
