Your translation is added to locales cvs HEAD and SM-1_4_3. Translation is enabled in squirrelmail 1.5.1cvs and 1.4.4cvs. locales for SquirrelMail 1.4.3 will include patched version of functions/i18n.php. Statistics should show it in two days.
Several changes were made. I've removed "sec_remove_eng.png" translation. Correct translation is "sec_remove_ug.png", if you provide image that says "This image has been removed for security reasons" in your language. If you have problems working with image editors, send translated string and I'll try to create appropriate image file. I have also fixed "Project-id-version" header. Id string was moved to comments. header contains "squirrelmail 1.4.3a" string.
Check program that you are using for translations, I suspect that it inserts extra line feeds.
Your translation might have problems, if you use php with gettext support. I think FreeBSD and glibc systems does not support Uighur system locale.
Translation contains copyright assigned to Mamatjan, XinJiang University. Is it distributed under public domain or GPL? If it is not and copyright violation is reported, translation will be removed from SquirrelMail.
If you get two or more copies of same email - sorry. I've send message to email address that was used to send message and to email address listed on translation.
