  • I looked at the swedish translation of WordPress at: and corrected a few thing.
    This might be a stupid question but how do you get the .po file to be a .mo file? I didn’t dare change anything on the wiki because I don’t really know how to do it.

  • you need a tool to convert the po to the binary mo file. e.g.

    …and to make changes in the Wiki, just click the “Edit” button at the bottom of the page.
    Then again, I’d advise putting changes in comments, and let the lead translator decide wether he should use them or not… My opinion…

    Ok, I’ll do that. Thanks!
    /Andreas added to the wiki as a download link.
    link manager strings are missing from the .po i think.

    @ andreas
    not sure really.
    i haven’t upgraded to mingus yet but changed the code in the template to utf-8 and didn’t notice any changes in those posts i’ve written in swedish or swedish characters used in other posts.
    the .po/.mo is worked in utf-8 as standard and that probably has a bearing on settings.
    som sagt, not sure really.

    If you previously posted in iso-8859-1 you will need to convert your old posts to utf-8. Consult this thread for some ideas. iconv does a good job, if you have it available. I might get around to writing an upgrade script that uses php’s iconv support, if it is compiled in, to convert old posts to utf-8 encoding.
