Translate Launchy

Translation of my Mozilla extension Launchy are starting to happen. Launchy has now been translated into Danish (da-DK), Italian (it-IT), Polish (pl-PL) and Russian (ru-RU).

If you wish to translate Launchy into your language, please use the following steps:

Start by translating the following files:
- context.ent
- options.ent

Also change the first line of all this files from:
<!-- Translation done by Henrik Gemal -->
<!-- Translation done by Your Name and Your Contact information -->

Then change "en-US" in this file into your language code:
- contents.rdf

Now test the translation. You can do this very easily by downloading the latest launchy.xpi file and replacing the files in the locale/en-US/ directory with your own files. I don't have the resources to test it, so it's all up to you. If you're using UltraEdit as your editor remember to turn off the setting "Write UTF-8 BOM header". Otherwise Mozilla will fail loading the file.

Finally zip the files and send it to me. The email address is spam at gemal dot dk.

I have sent you a Dutch translation, have you received it? (does your email address really start with 'spam')?

Some time ago there was some confusion in one of the newsgroup if you were using the proper extensions for DTD files, since Mozilla uses .dtd instead of .ent internally.

I guess it would be a trivial change for you to make it .dtd, not?

Ben used .ent for some of his entities files in his extension so I changed .dtd into .ent to be consistent with the main developer of Firefox.
