Hi Markus,
     Sorry for a later reponse. 
     We prepaire to start the simple chinese translation now.  Firstly, I
want to download the latest po files,  and  go to
http://freegis.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/grass6/locale/po/, but I don't know
which file is the English version, so where can I get the latest English po
files? Secondly, I am planing use poEdit to do the translation as some of us
use the windows operating system, are there any problems with this solution?
Or any other more efficiency solution? 
     Best wish,

     Yours sincerely,
Liangxu Wang
