I've seen that Docky can't be translated from Launchpad, so, how can it be translated?

Please go here: https://translations.launchpad.net/docky/trunk

Then make sure to upload a .po file for your language, if it is not already listed. If your language is already listed you can edit the strings directly in launchpad.

To generate a .po file for your language so you can upload it to launchpad:

        First of all you create a template to base your translation on:
                intltool-update --pot

        Then copy it to your translation:
                cp docky.pot ca_ES.po
        Do your translation, with some kind of editor:
                vim ca_ES.po
        Make sure it is UTF-8 encoded.

        Then edit LINGUAS and add your l10n to it.

We also just made launchpad setup to handle translations, so you should be able to start a new language on launchpad and let lp manage things (much easier).

Thanks!
