This project aims to have a full translation for the Drupal Content Management System by translating strings in certain files (called *.po files) to Arabic. This is done by translating Messages used in the Drupal CMS (POT --> PO).


Current stable version of drupal does not use gettext and po files.
However CVS drupal does and this seems to be the future direction drupal will take, the gettext local module is backported to stable, thats what we are targeting. Eventualy we'll move to translating CVS and keep up with the project.
