hats off to translators!

i'm the kind of guy who prefer (most of the time) using the english locale for the applications i'm using.

however, being part of padre's development team, i'm updating the french locale (we try to remove everything that can be a barrier for people new to padre).

and this made me realize how time-consuming and difficult it is to correctly translate an application. indeed, you don't understand the hard work needed for a task unless you are to do this task yourself...

so, my hat off to the many translators that are working on open-source projects: even if your contribution has a lower profile than code, your task is nevertheless important!

ps: and if you think that you could:
  • make a better translation job than me
  • contribute a translation for your language
  • or even add features
to padre... join us!
