Ok, I'm back. I had quite a week!

I managed to produce the pot file to use for translation, the file is
banner.pot in bug 1013280 [1].

If you want your language translated, you should first produce a
langcode.po file, with poedit or something similar. Replace langcode
with your language code, for example, fr.po for French.

There are strings that should not be translated, you will know which ones are.

Download the svg sources produced by Dominique, from the en-svg.zip
file in the bug or from Dominique's source. Uncompress the files in
your home directory and with a terminal go to en-svg folder (under
Fedora, of course).

Put the langcode.po file with translations in en-svg folder.

With po4a-translate produce the svg in your language:

po4a-translate -f xml -m Make-Fedora-Better.svg -p langcode.po -l

Proofread the translations: you can do it with Files in gnome, as it
shows the bitmaps directly on screen. You will see that some strings
should be properly placed in the strings in the po file. Some other
strings should be summarized.

I will need the translated svg, preferably in langcode.tar.gz or
langcode.zip to include them in fedora-logos package in jpg format.

The utility po4a-translate is in po4a package:

su -c 'yum install po4a'

I can convert from svg to png with inkscape:

inkscape --export-png=Cd-or-dvd.png Cd-or-dvd.svg

Later, it should be converted to jpg. I don't know what tool to use.
It's not much problem, it can be done with gimp too.

To spot: can we include these translated bitmaps in fedora-logos to
have them translated for anaconda?

Are we still on time for the release date?
