This article is about how to realize and use localized C:B. All the works have been done under Windows XP SP2.
'''1. Getting english POT file'''
The english POT file's url is here:
I will update this file aperiodically. Of course, you can use the tool which I have created (seen belown) to generate the POT file.
The content of the tool which is named as '''intl.bat''' is belown:

'''2. Getting the translating tool'''
Usually, we use the tool of poEdit which can be down at http://www.poedit.org/download.php.
'''3. Translating in poEdit'''
Rename codeblocks.pot into codeblocks.po. Using poEdit to open the file codeblocks.po. Remebering to change some settings
[Catalog]->[Settings]->[Project info]->[Team/email/Language/Charset]
If your C:B is compiled with UNICODE, the Charset should be setted to utf-8; If C:B is compiled with ANSI, the Charset should be setted to your own language charset like gb2312,koi8-r etc..
After these settings done, you can start the translating. It's a hard working! During the process, of course, you can use your translations an any time.
'''4. Geting and using mo file'''
Pressing Ctrl+S in poEdit, you can get a *.mo file like codeblocks.mo which is needed by we. To use codeblocks.mo, we just place it into C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks or C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\share\CodeBlocks\locale\<lang>/LC_MESSAGES or C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\share\CodeBlocks\locale\<lang>. My language is Chinese and I have installed C:B into E:\, so I place codeblocks.mo into E:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\share\CodeBlocks\locale\zh_CN.
If wanting to use codeblocks.mo under Linux or Unix, you just place it into /usr/X11R6/share/locale/<lang>/LC_MESSAGES/. For example, I put it into /usr/X11R6/share/locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES/ under FreeBSD.
Details about Internationalization of wxWidget can be seen from wxWidget's docment.
'''5. Troubleshooting'''
If having any questions, you can mail to me: zxpmyth at yahoo.com.cn.
