Description of problem:
Te norwegian bokmï¿½l translation-files is placed in
/usr/share/locale/no/LC_MESSAGES/gaim.mo. This results in no
translation when bokmï¿½l is selected locale. Copying the file to
/usr/share/locale/nb/LC_MESSAGES/gaim.mo results in a translated gaim.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gaim with norwegian bokmï¿½l locale. There is no translation.
ping upstream, is this still an issue?
What's the relationship between no and nb? Would gaim need a new
our translators tell us that there are 3 kinds of norwegian,
code nno, Norwegian Nynorsk, = nn
code nob, Bokm?l, Norwegian(someone didn't send me unicode), = nb
code nor, Norwegian, = no
the above from http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/englangn.html
apparently Vietnam has something similar going on as well.
the Gnome translators are treating each of the above, nn, nb, and no,
as separate translations, so I would say that this is not a bug, and
that we simply do not have a nb translation and will not until someone
volunteers to do so. the submitter can contact me about being a
translator if he likes.
