h1. Add a New Language (Localization) to MojoMojo

h2. Overview

MojoMojo uses .po files to stores words, phrases and sentences of a language. For example, the base language file is en.po for English. The .po files are found in lib/MojoMojo/I18N/.

  • Copy en.po to ca.po
  • Edit the ca.po by adding Catalan text on the msgstr line which is equivalent to the English text on the msgid line.

h2. Footnotes

fn1. The language choices are currently at the botton of MojoMojo pages - February 18, 2009.
