    Hi bp community,

    I’m planning on making a translation for the newest buddypress in Dutch, but I saw that there’s already an old translation for Dutch. It’s less time consuming to use an existing one after all..

    Can I see somewhere whats changed since then (1.0RC) and what I have to translate or change? I geuss the trac, but Im not farmiliar with working with that.

    Thanks,

    Mitchell

    If the dutch language pack comes with both po’s and mo’s, then you can rescan the buddypress directory with poedit, update the database from the source, and then proceed with your changes.

    If not, then you’re sort-of out of luck I think. I haven’t found a tool to merge an existing mo into a new po, so it would be a manual process of copy and pasting each preexisting translation.

    It has both his po and mo, so what do I do now? I’m new to translating. And since I’m also planning on translating both bbpress and wpmu. I’m eager to learn. :)

    And btw, I also use Poedit.

    Here’s a really helpful guide to translating using poedit: http://urbangiraffe.com/articles/translating-wordpress-themes-and-plugins/

    Found out how it works in poEdit, this’ll make my job easier. :)

    Instead of the full 100%, I only have to do about 30% translation.
