I have written a piece of text which I would like to add to the Xfce
msgmerge wiki at http://wiki.xfce.org/translations/msgmerge

Here goes:


An example with a Dutch translation file for a package called
"packageW", which is fully translated in the stable "Xfce 4.8" and
needs to be merged with an incomplete Dutch translation file in the
development branch "master".

Both files are in the Downloads folder.

Copy/paste the following command in your terminal:
cd Downloads

(press Enter)

Now copy/paste the following command in your terminal:
msgmerge packageW-xfce-4-8.nl.po packageW-master.nl.po >

(press Enter)

Then delete both "packageW-xfce-4-8.nl.po" (you don't need it anymore)
and "packageW-master.nl.po" (you don't want a name conflict in the
next step).

Then rename "NEWpackageW.master.nl.po" to "packageW.master.nl.po".

Finally: upload "packageW.master.nl.po" in Transifex.


I have no editing rights for the wiki myself, so I hope that someone
who does, will want to add this....
