The guide has been updated lately. Do you get any error messages when running this command?
This generates the HTML files for all translations (saved in PO files).
If that works, check you have the same locale code as the PO file you’ve been editing, for example, if it’s
./ubuntu-mate-welcome --verbose --locale=de_de
(The code is case sensitive!)
For reference, some German locale codes:
German - Austria -
German - Germany -
German - Liechtenstein -
German - Luxembourg -
German - Switzerland -
No. Git is decentralized, they’re both separate until you start pushing and pulling changes. To share your changes so far, you’d type:
git add *
git commit -m "Partial German translation"
Then your changes will appear on your fork.
