 Some of the X2Go components can be internationalized/​localized (translated into many of the globe'​s languages as possible). Here is a short howto that explains what you need to do, to contribute your language to X2Go. Some of the X2Go components can be internationalized/​localized (translated into many of the globe'​s languages as possible).

 +**TL;DR;** All translators please send their translation efforts (''​.po''​ files, ''​.ts''​ files or git formatted patches) to the [[http://​lists.x2go.org/​listinfo/​x2go-i18n|X2Go i18n mailing list]]. Please prepare files that have a Unix EOL (line-ending) style. Thank you!

 ==== Translating pinentry-x2go ==== ==== Translating pinentry-x2go ====
  
-FIXME+X2Go's pinentry tool uses the same translation mechanism as X2Go Client (Qt4, Qt-Linguist,​ .ts files). Thus, see above. The ''​.ts''​ files are in the subfolder ''​pinentry-x2go/''​ of the project'​s source tree. 
 + 
 +==== Translating PyHoca-GUI ==== 
 + 
 +For PyHoca-GUI as a translater you have to use a gettext compatible (.po/.mo files) editor like '''​poedit'''​. The translation process is described in the ''​[[http://​code.x2go.org/​gitweb?​p=pyhoca-gui.git;​a=blob;​f=README.i18n|README.i18n]]''​ file within PyHoca-GUI'​s source tree. 
 + 
 +Please also note that there is an NSIS installer (for the win32 version of PyHoca-GUI),​ that also has a few translatable strings. Check the ''​nsis_include/''​ subfolder in the PyHoca-GUI source tree.

 +==== Translating X2Go Desktop Sharing ====

The ''​.po'' files are in the po/ subfolder in the source tree.
  
-==== Translating x2godesktopsharing ====+Additionally,​ the GNOMEv2 / MATE Bindings package ships a desktop file that needs to be translated:
