I am going to translate a theme into Danish - just for myself, so no fuzz about making .mo .po or other such files!
I would like to know if a translation of E.g:
<h2><?php _e('Pages'); ?></h2>
<h2><?php _e('Sider'); ?></h2>
... I just doesnt get the idea with the php-code ... I have the idea that if I would do it correct, I should make a translation file and use the php - but that the simple version will work just as fine... right??
