To make the translation process easier, we now use Gettext, a GNU software. This thread aims to explain how to help to translate AdwCleaner in a very easy way thanks to Poedit.

Poedit is a free and multiplatform gettext translation editor, with a simple and efficient interface.

Poedit main window

  • Go to Edit > Preferences. In [General] tab, set your (nick)name & email and ensure that "Automatically compile MO file when saving" is unchecked.

Poedit Preferences

  • In [Advanced] tab, uncheck "Wrap at xx" and "Preserve formatting existing files".

Poedit Preferences - Advanced tab

  • Click on "Edit a translation" and open the .po file we gave you by email. The strings to translate appears on the left, and the translated one is on the right.
  • Before to begin the translation, go to Catalog > Properties and set the Charset as "UTF-8 (recommended)"

Catalog Properties

  • Finally, select the string to translate, and write the translation in "Translation" field on the bottom.
  • At the end, click on "Save" and send us back the same .po file.

You can also edit the .po file with your favorite text-editor (Notepad++ for instance), but Poedit makes this process a lot more easier.
