Thank you for the help.
I have set --enable-gettext in ./configure, installed the gnu utils
gettext, created the de.po file and modified the file makefile.am.
Then I have done a few translations. I have run make and make install.
When I try to start Maxima I get the following:
Maxima 5.20post http://maxima.sourceforge.net
debugger invoked on a TYPE-ERROR in thread #<THREAD "initial thread"
The value "" is not of type (SIMPLE-ARRAY BASE-CHAR (*)).
Type HELP for debugger help, or (SB-EXT:QUIT) to exit from SBCL.
restarts (invokable by number or by possibly-abbreviated name):
0: [MACSYMA-QUIT] Maxima top-level
1: [CONTINUE ] Ignore runtime option --eval "(cl-user::run)".
2: [ABORT ] Skip rest of --eval and --load options.
3: Skip to toplevel READ/EVAL/PRINT loop.
4: [QUIT ] Quit SBCL (calling #'QUIT, killing the process).
Most of the msgstr strings in the file de.po are empty strings. Is this
the problem? But what is the way to get a de.po file with the English
text as default value.
