Hallo Fanen Ahua, and welcome to the world of localisation. The warnings
indicate that your system don't yet have the most basic information
about your language to allow you to install translations. This is called
a locale, and you can read more about it here:
If you want to test your translations, you can "cheat", by installing it
into another language code that you are not interested in. If you
install the Zulu locale, for example, you can just copy your mo files
into the correct place for Zulu translations and set your system to
Zulu. This way you can test your translation before you have a proper
locale installed for tiv.
