I'm working on a Brazilian Portuguese translation for SV (and I have plans to make also a Spanish translation), but I realized that, apparently, the translations are inserted into the compiled binary files at design or compilation time. This makes testing and viewing the new translation very difficult, because I would need to compile the source myself and, maybe, even alter some code to make that work.
So, I would suggest to put all the translations (the .qm files) in a separate folder (like "translations" or "localization") inside the application's folder, and incorporate only the original language into the executable itself. Then, the executable could read this folder at startup and fill the languages box in the preferences dialog with the languages encountered.
What about? Is it possible?
