    From the site:

    “5) if you are really sure there is none making that translation, get this file and change the name from Resources_en.po to be Resources_YOUR-LANGUAGE.po where YOUR-LANGUAGE is the two-letters acronym for your language according to the ISO standard”

    Two things:

    1) When you click on “ISO standard”, it links to ISO 3166, which is country codes. I think you want ISO 639:

    2) Hope you don’t mind that Klingon’s ISO code (tlh) has three letters.

    Anyhow, I’ll definitely help with Swedish and Klingon if I can find the time for it 🙂

    Tackar jag och vi ses,
