If you would like to translate Bino into your language, please contact

translation will have to be updated regularly as Bino changes, and unmaintained
translations will have to be removed.
Bino uses the gettext system for translations. To add a translation, e.g. for
pt (portuguese), add a line "pt" to po/LINGUAS. Then update the translation
$ cd po
$ make bino.pot
and copy it to your new translation file:
