    Thanks!
    I downloaded poEdit, but norwegian characters, like Ø Æ Å and showed as "?" and "√•".
    Is it possible to _DOWNLOAD_ the po-file, insted of VIEWING it in my browser?

    Thanks, but a MO-file is a compiled PO-file :(
    I really need to *Download* the po-file. Otherwise I cant translate anything. This sucks :(

    Anon,
    where the Norvegian characters show wrong? In poEdit? or...?
    As for download - from the wiki you can't. The only way (from there) to highlight the .po part from that page and copy in an empty (text?) file and save it as nb_NO.po
    then edit it in the poEdit.

    Yeah, but the "real" characters are "lots in translation". Means that the browser threats them as one, then I paste them in a edit and save again. This way I loose the original charater.

    Hey, anon, I took a second look at the Norvegian .po file, and I think it's not your browser's fault!
    Try to contact the original translator (email in the .po file's heading) because despite claiming it's a utf-8 encoding his characters are NOT showing up correctly! My guess is he edited the file in a text editor without the capability to save it in utf-8 encoding, that's why the characters are not correct in the .po file on wiki.
