It would be nice to do the translation with Transifex. In contrast to github, Transifex is much easier for non-technical people. Moreover we can get an good overview how much is translated. Other projects also use Transifex for their translations:


This mail already explains some basic steps and demonstrates it in this fork. Moreover the documentation on the Transifex website is useful as well. Sphinx provides instructions as well.

I used this branch . Then I did this commands:

make gettext sphinx-intl update -p _build/locale tx init sphinx-intl update-txconfig-resources --pot-dir _build/locale --transifex-project-name osgeolive tx push -s

Then comes a error messages:

tx push -s
Pushing translations for resource osgeolive.index:
Pushing source file (_build/locale/index.pot)
Resource does not exist.  Creating...
Exception: Unexpected import error (cause: Syntax error in po file None (line 10))

The file "_build/locale/index.pot" looks like this:

"PO-Revision-Date: YEAR-MO-DA HO:MI+ZONE\n"
"Last-Translator: FULL NAME <EMAIL@ADDRESS>\n"
"Language-Team: LANGUAGE <>\n"
"MIME-Version: 1.0\n"

Somehow in line 10 there is a "\n" which causes trouble. When I fix this line, then I am able to push content to Transifex.

Changing the language team line by "Language-Team: ENGLISH <\n" seems mandatory.
