How to translate "%a %H:%M"?

Asked by AJenbo on 2011-03-18

Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

If it is standard time format it would be:
"pm 15:MAR" but that doesn't make much sence so what format is it and what options does translatores have.

It's a strftime format string.

You can use any of the options on http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/intrepid/man3/strftime.3.html and test them before translating with the 'date' command.

For example, im my locale:

$ date +"%a %H:%M"
dv 10:27

This should be been a question all along.
