That's generally right.

Yes and no:

- the source code is now automatically browsed by the
  make[file], see the locale/README how to do it
- still most of the message indications are missing in the
  source code (the gettext macro), so for one time the source
  code has to be touched and the fprintf macro inserted where
- the multi-byte support is not yet included in 5.7, I am
  working on that these days (merging the 5.0 efforts into 5.7).

To start, it's sufficient to translate the .po files, but
you will have to download the latest source code to generate
it (automatically).
