39f79fa9 9If you are using a regular SquirrelMail release, translations should be
10available from the SquirrelMail download page:
26857b2c 11
12http://squirrelmail.org/download.php
13
14Packaged translations are distributed in archives named
15
16xx_XX-{sm-version}-{release-date}.tar.gz
17xx_XX-{sm-version}-{release-date}.tar.bz2
18xx_XX-{sm-version}-{release-date}.zip
19
20For example:
39f79fa9 21es_ES-1.5.0-20031201.tar.gz should contain the Spanish translation of SquirrelMail
221.5.0 strings released on December 01, 2003. Translation is packaged with tar and
23gzip.
26857b2c 24
39f79fa9 25The all_locales-{sm-version}-{release-date}.{tar.gz|tar.bz2|zip} packages contain
26all available translations.
26857b2c 27
39f79fa9 28The locales-{sm-version}-{release-date}-src.{tar.gz|tar.bz2|zip} packages contain
29all available SquirrelMail translations without compiled gettext strings. The
30compilelocales script that is included in package should create all required .mo
31files if you have the msgfmt program (this is useful if you want to create or
32update translation files yourself).
26857b2c 33

39f79fa9 373.(optional) translated help files (*.hlp)
26857b2c 384.(optional) translated images (sec_remove_*.png)

39f79fa9 41locale/<language_country>/LC_MESSAGES/ directory.
42Help files are placed in help/<language_country>/ directory.
26857b2c 43
44For example:
