Re: [Translation-i18n] gettext with non-en source language
in the gettext doc to do like this. English and American are the
most understood languages nowadays and for the next decades, not
German, Spanish or whatever. It is short-sighted to start a fresh
with user interface strings in any other language than English.
In the next decades and starting very soon, the world's most
understood languages will be Chinese and Hindi, and especially those
two will have a huge influence on the IT world. And only the people
who don't read Chinese on Hindi are blind to that.
It is very short sighted to not take that into account.
