The english lang file is the reference.

Example: to build the francais.lng file:

(in the rockbox-devel directory)

# tools/binlang apps/lang/english.lang apps/lang/francais.lang francais.lng

The newly created francais.lng is now in the current directory.

This example applies to Linux, for Windows you might have to call Perl

C:> perl tools/binlang apps/lang/english.lang apps/lang/francais.lang
