VLC use gettext to manage the localisation.
You can find the file to edit here:

If you are on Windows or Linux, I recommend you to edit this file with
poEdit (poedit.sf.net). If you are on Mac OS X, you probably want to
edit it with SubEthaEdit. Be sure that you edit it in UTF8, if you are
using the latter editor.

If you have problems or questions, ask here or on #videolan on

When you're finished or well advanced, you can send me the file or put
it somewhere online and we will integrate it in the SVN repository.

Thanks for your contributions to VLC.
