The screen is divided into three columns.

The left columns holds the strings that need to be translate. A pale circle indiecates that this string need to be translated. A green cirle indactes that the string as already one translation.

Once a string is selected in the left column, the translation is done in the middle column and saved with "save translation".

The right column shows possible suggestions for a translation offered by the system. Choose one with a click if you want to use it.

Anything with curly brackets needs to be kept in the translate string (see screenshot).
