I have some good news about translations. The new Qt 4.5 now has
improved support for the Gettext PO format:
Importantly, this includes a new tool “lconvert” which can translate
between file formats (e.g., to take from PO to TS). I was actually
able to compile lconvert against Qt 4.4 and it works just fine. I
tested with some of the new Launchpad translations (e.g., Chinese) and
it looks good.
This is better than po2ts because it’s actually from Trolltech, and I
think the resulting TS files should be more reliable.
I think now we have a good workflow for translations for 0.9 and 1.0
