|In reply to Comment 51 (Joël EHRET):
"you need a catalog description file to generate a catalog translation
file and then a catalog file...
so if the program author doesn't provide the catalog description file,
you can't localise a program...."
Of course, but the usual thing is to provide a few catalogs with the program, and then work with various native speakers (probably through ATO) to provide more. There are many catalogs for various programs on Aminet.
