> Hi Jakob, and welcome to the i18n team.
> It's great that you join us, since we didn't have a Swedish
> translation team, as you saw on the wiki. You were right to add
> yourself there.
> I added your Mageia account to the mga-i18n group: it will enable you

> able to start the real work.
> As you can see here:
> https://transifex.mageia.org/projects/p/mageia_i18n/r/mga2/ only 14%
> of the strings of the software specific to Mageia are translated in
> Swedish for Mageia 2. Though, most of those tools come from Mandriva
> where most of them were translated, so the first step is:
> - Have a look at this page to know which .po files were already
> imported to Transifex (short Tx), namely the project which are mostly
> translated.
> - Use this wiki page
> https://wiki.mageia.org/en/List_of_Mageia_transifex_projects to find
> on our SVN the sv.po files for the other softwares. There are a few
> projects which are partly translated on Tx (like 20% or so), you
> should check if the .po files which are on the SVN do not contain more
> translated strings (maybe Umeaboy, who seems not to be active now,
> started translating from 0 while there were already .po files he could
> have used).
> - Import those .po files to Tx under the right project name (see the
> page linked above for a correspondance).
> - Then you can start the strings which were modified after the fork,
> mostly strings in which "Mageia" replaced "Mandriva" or new/fixed
> strings added by the developers.
> If one of the point is not clear enough, feel free to ask for more details.
> You can have a look here for a short guide to Tx:
