Please help translate ISO Master into your language.

I put together a list of steps you can follow if you want to help:

  • Download isomaster.pot, the template for your .po file.

  • Use your favourite po editor (I like poedit) to translate as many strings as you wish. Remember that even a few words translated is better than nothing. If you're not sure what something means don't translate it or you can contact me and ask.

  • Save the file as xx.po where xx is the ISO 639-1 code for the language. Alternatively you can save it as xx_YY.po where YY is the ISO3166 country code.

  • Please make sure when you save the .po file that it's saved in UTF-8 encoding, I'll have trouble reading them otherwise.

  • Use the contact form to send me your email address and I'll email you back the same day. Sorry for the complication, I can't afford to post my email address on the internet cause I'll get spammed to death.

Thanks in advance

Version Control

The version control repository for the linux/bsd version of ISO Master and bkisofs is freely accessible, you can get it like this:

svn co svn://

The windows versions are not available for free.


There is documentation for bkisofs available here, for those who want to create their own applications that work with ISO9660 files. The documentation is for the Linux version but it applies to the windows iso9660 library as well.
