According to http://www.videolan.org/developers/i18n/vlcstat.php it
should be something like 42% untranslated in 0.9.8a. So i'm not too sure
how you have only 30% translated. Which OS do you use ? (and distro if

There is a few problems on some of the strings with c-format (like %d or
%s). You can't change the order in which the %x, %d, %s, ... appear in
%the strings. This is a limitation of the system we use to translate.
It is a problem at least for modules/access/dvdread.c:574
Also if you wish to continue translating VLC for next versions, it is
better to get the file from
. So that the headers don't get lost and you have the strings which
might have been changed since the last release.
You may also want to contact Wei Mingzhi <whistler at openoffice.org> who
is the current Chinese translator.
I'll try to merged you translation without the strings where the
c-format cause problem
