Re: Finding strings in GNOME

Daniel than you for your reply.
GNOME files are not the problem. I have a complete control over those, I'm obviously looking for strings that come from other packages. I find a lot of them in, many times also in TP-Project. But searching takes time.

There used to be a PPA for ubuntu ubuntu-translations-coordinators that included ubuntu-l10n-tool, a package that did right that, but it is unactive for years.

I'm sure there is a way to search in e.g. .mo files on my sistem. If I find that file, I know, where the string is.

Do anyone know how to ignore these "_" memonics that might be in strings?
