GnuCash Translators: Current translation work is done on "trunk" now

Dear translators of gnucash,

as now explained on :

According to recent discussion on the gnucash-devel mailing lists and 
(hopefully), we will be 
releasing 2.3.x releases as a preparation of the next stable release 2.4.0. 
The 2.3.x releases will be made from the trunk branch, and once 2.4.0 is 
released, there will be a "2.4" branch (to be expected in summer or fall of 
2009). This means that in preparation for and during the 2.3.x phase, every 
translator should work on the *trunk* branch. The old translations from the 
2.2 branch have been copied to trunk before the 2.3.0 release, so no work is 

Also, the old translations have been merged with the up-to-date translation 
template of trunk, so you can directly download the updated file from

Some 200-300 strings have changed from 2.2.x to 2.3.x/trunk.

To repeat this again: The gnucash Subversion repository has several different 
branches. As of April 2009, the development for the next stable release is 
prepared on the trunk branch. This trunk branch is different from 2.2-branch 
which was the previous stable branch, but is no longer in use anymore! You 
should therefore translate the trunk branch instead of the 2.2 branch, until 
a new stable branch (2.4) will be created.

A String Freeze period will (hopefully) be planned during a later 2.3.x 
release. For that period the developers will guarantee that no string changes 
will occur, so that you can translate these without any lost work.

Thank you very much for all of your contributions!
