I'm very happy L18L joined the team today.
That reminded me to post about fd64-nls, which I kept forgetting.
fd64-nls is part of the FatDog internationalisation system. In FatDog all languages are in one fat sfs: 63MB of goodness...not just a couple of languages, 181 of them!
How to use it?
Fatdog does not care about old versions, thus 700 only is relevant at the moment.
The 64 is in fd is sort of a misnomer: there is nothing about 64-bit in a nls (Native Language support) package.
My recommendation: Add these .mo files at the end of your work.
What makes puppy „bark in your language“ is a lot of different small .mo files for Puppy‘s special scripts and the translated menu items.
This is part 1 of your work: translate shell scripts.
Part 2: Translate Items for menu and menu categories
. (Doc is a problem of its own)
Last part of your work: translate executable apps
Writing this I see that this is just the order in which they are in momanager!
Very last part: Add mo files selected from this fd64-nls.sfs (thus you do not need to find them „on the web“ ).
Creating a langpack without that „very last step“ should result in a langpack small enough to be posted in the forum. (There is a size limit of 256kB)
@Bert, maybe now it is not jumpstarting but the jump for finishing?
