You can try your translations the right way by installing them in your
gaim's search path. For a normal gaim-package you'd have to do "msgfmt
sk.po -o /usr/share/locale/sk/LC_MESSAGES/gaim.mo"
If you compiled it yourself, you should replace /usr/share
gaim crashes when you try it while gaim is running. You should
restart it. :)
