Things are moving quickly for me now on Day 4; I managed to deal with the process of downloading, translating, and then this morning with Pierros’ help uploading the translated files to Transifex. Pierros got me approved for cvsl10n so that I could work with the files on the site. Peirros also arranged commit permission for me, so the process is manageable by myself from .po file to uploaded completion at this point.
Getting my first two translated files uploaded and seeing the 100% completion report on Transifex was awesome! This afternoon though, I still need to understand the process of converting .pot files to .po, and I need to get the translation schedules.
