to make it a bit more user freindly I want to translate merkaartor (in

Now my questions is - how to do that for linux? QT uses the linguist and
it's own fileformat, whereas under linux gettext is used. Is there a style
guide or a generic approach for QT localization under Linux? I know KDE
uses gettext as well, but never looked into the details. I also did not
find something helpful when using Google. Any tips?

There is a pretty good general explanation in the official Qt

This answer how to translate Qt. That was not the question. The question is "How to translate Qt in the context of Linux, which is using a different system called gettext". This are two totally different things.

Topics here are:
- Is there a way to use gettext instead of Qt internal format
- In case Qt internal is recommended, where are the Qt-files to be stored
- How is the packaging done and lots of stuff like that.

If you have any exact questions, feel free to ask.

I already did. Reread my text.
