Some notes for translators
There are three directories containing translations:
Contains the phrases used in the tasksel program.
Contain the phrases used in (a few of) the tasks themselves.
Contains the debconf templates.
Your language should be listed in LANGS and LANGS_DESC variables
in Makefile. (LANGS is for translations in po/, and LANGS_DESC
is for translations in tasks/po/.)
You should also translate the Descriptions of the task-* packages.
These are shown to the user when tasksel runs, so are actually
the most important thing to translate. This can be done via the
The Debian Description Translation Project:
When translating the Descriptions, the ones that matter are those
tasks that are displayed to the user. Translating the Descriptions
of the language-specific tasks, which are not shown to the user,
is not a priority.
