13.1 Translation of man pages

You can also contribute to the project working on the translation of the man pages for the different live-* packages that the project maintains. The procedure is different depending on whether you are starting a translation from scratch or continue working on an already existing one:

If you want to maintain the translation of an already existing language you have to make your changes to your manpages/po/${LANGUAGE}/*.po file or files and then run make rebuild from inside the manpages/ directory. This will update the actual man pages in manpages/${LANGUAGE}/*

In order to add a new translation of any of the project's man pages you have to follow a similar procedure. It could be summarized as follows:

Remember that you will have to add all the directories and files, then make the commit and finally push to the git server.
