You can find the file there:
You can use poEdit or Lokalize ((or a simple text editor to translate)).
Make sure that you use UTF-8 as encoding.
The Hindi localisation is not very complete but you can download it at
if it helps.
We don't really have a detailled documentation on the localisation
process. If you have question you can ask them on irc #videolan on
irc.freenode.net or on the mailing-list vlc-devel at videolan.org
When you have done a part of it you can send it to me or put it online
and send us the link.
There is a mailing list dedicated to translators. you can subscribe at
