Yes. Sorry for the typo ...

First you need to add
add_language('lv', _('Latvian'), 'utf-8', 'ltr')
to the list at the end of Mailman/Defaults.py, and copy the English (or
come other languge if you prefer) templates to templates/lv. E.g.
cp -a en lv
You also need to do
cp /path/to/unpack/messages/mailman.pot \
And make sure the ownership and permissions of these are the same as
for other languages. Then do
to make the binary mailman.mo file. Then you can do
to restart Mailman at which point Mailman should recognize Latvian as a
language, but of course it won't be translated.
Then as you make translated templates and add translated messages, you
can replace files in /path/to/templates/ and/or the
You then do
(only necessary if you changed mailman.po), and
Note that there is an experimental Pootle server for Mailman (see
<http://wiki.list.org/x/KIBJ>). I can't help with that, but others on
this list can.

I so decided, there must be a mailing list in my rural area and it is then
quite necessary, that its support and interfaces are in the native language.
Latvian in this case. At this point I don't know what to do, because in the
manual it was written: "First of all, please join the mailman-i18n mailing
list. mailman-i18n is where we discuss any and all i18n
(internationalization) issues. Please introduce yourself, so we get to meet
you, and to find out what you are going to contribute."
Well, now I understand why was that mentioned "a champion" about translator:
8667 lines in mailman.pot! Wiii... I wonder, if it was clear to me about the
translation, how long would they take? 7 days full time? Your guess?
Ok. What does this effectively mean:
"The instructions about the templates directory is specific to Mailman 2.1.
There are some changes here for Mailman 2.2, although we're not sure what the
final form of the templates will be. Please contact the
mailman-i18n(a)python.org mailing list for details."
Besides, why can't I access http://bugs.list.org/? Maybe
needs to be updated?
So in short, I want to translate, but can I translate the list slowly by
uploading the latest files to my server, so more and more is translated,
while lists are fully operational?
Feel free to advice me and best regards from a Latvian - lets take this nation
out of various kinds of shame!
