My little announcement... Forward around if you like...

Subject: Apache::MP3 localization

So I decided a good thing to do would be to internationalize Apache::MP3 
using Locale::Maketext.

With the help of some patient native-speakers of French, I made a
sample localization into French.  Here's the lexicon file:

Now, what would really make it wonderful is if people would submit 
translations for their own languages; then we'll have a demonstration 
application of localization in Perl.  And besides, everyone likes mp3s!

The way you can provide me with a translation is by downloading the above 
"" file, replacing all the French bits with bits in your own 
language, and emailing it to me.  If the data isn't in Latin-1, tell me 
what its encoding name is.

So you can see where the phrases end up, these are screenshots of two 
screens produced from the above French lexicon:

Feel free to email me any questions about the meaning of things.
If you can read French, one thing you might notice is that I've translated 
"stream" as the word meaning simply "play".  That might be a good idea for 
your language too.

Once I get a few translations, I'll maybe add more comments to the 
file and then ask various Perl Mongers groups to provide translations of 
what still needs translating.
