For this so called Translation Source files (*.ts) are used. Later these files will be used to create QT message files (*.qm).

This are binary files which will be used by Open LP to translate all the displayed text within the Open LP User Interface.

:-) You will usually find a complete blank set, like this, in a file which has not yet been translated at all, a . There are two headers which may or may not appear in that block, but it’s better if they before the information.
