po to mo

by yushang » Thu Jan 09, 2020 02:22

Hi dear all,
I'm running a pre-built minetest , found the zh_CN locale is missing in locale directory , so I pull the po for zh_CN from the minetest source repository . I'v tried some online po/mo converter , but did not work. my question is how to convert po to mo correctly on Windows ? many thanks!!!

There is Poedit, that can automatically create MO files when saving the PO file.


Maybe there are Windows tools for just converting, too, but I don't know. On Linux there is msgfmt from the Gettext package for that.

FYI: It is missing in the locale because there are display issues. The text might be unreadable.

Also ensure that `font_path` and `mono_font_path` are set to a font which supports Chinese characters.
