    Help get Wine translated into your language!

    To check Wine's translation status, visit this page - as of this writing, only 4 languages (Dutch, French, German, and Lithuanian) are fully translated.

    Wine is different from most programs in Ubuntu - it doesn't use the standard Rosetta translation infrastructure. The reason is that Wine, internally, must use the same translation mechanisms as Windows. That means resource files, which in the Windows world require some manual adjustments other than simply changing strings.

    However, if you don't like messing around with resource files, fear not! Several Wine developers have volunteered to do all the dirty work for you (even sending patches); all you need to do is translate the actual words. They send you a glorified text file (.po), and you send it back with your translations included.

    It's very easy to get involved, just visit this page: http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine1.2Translations -- pick one of the developers listed there, shoot them an email, and tell them the language you'd like to translate for.

    Wine binary files can contain the same resource in several languages.
    Wine will choose which language to display based on user settings. For example, the command "LANG=ru_RU wine winecfg" will launch winecfg in Russian (this requires that you have Russian locale information installed in Linux/your other native system).
    The resources are stored in Windows standard .rc files, which can be compiled with wrc (the Wine resource compiler). There are also gettext .po translations in the po/ directory.

    The English locales all default to another English locale (British if I recall correctly). There is so little difference between them that it's not worth the extra code to duplicate translations. Therefore I would be very surprised if all English locales were not 100%.

    Believe me, I've done a fair bit of work on the translations throughout Ubuntu (including parts of Wine).
