Translating synfig & synfigstudio

Synfig and Synfigstudio are now translatable. We are using the standard gettext system and .po files. The gettext manual has lots of good advice for translators and programmers alike.

If you add a cpp or h file who contain new translatable strings (standard gettext), you must add those files in the associated potfiles.in that you can found in the synfig-core or synfig-studio po directory.

When you are building the source, the build system will create a PO Template for both synfig (po/synfig.pot) and synfigstudio (po/synfigstudio.pot).

Online translation tool

Synfig can be traduced online : https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/synfig
