+###Tips for translators
+If you are a new translator, you can find the following tips helpful.
+Please ask on the
+[ooo-L10n list](
+if you have any questions.
+ 1. Do not translate the file <tt>basic/source/app.po</tt>; these strings belong
+to an outdated tool (TestTool) no longer distributed with OpenOffice. Ignore that
+file and return it exactly as you received it.
+ 1. When you save a file in POEdit, you may receive the error "Header Field
+Project-Id-Version still has the initial default value"; you can safely ignore it;
+that field is not used in the current localization process.
+ 1. Some strings contain a "~", like "All ~Pages"; these are meant for keyboard
+accelerators; you should ignore the "~" in newly translated strings: OpenOffice
+will automatically assign an accelerator to commands.
+ 1. If you are a team, or you plan to have someone else review your changes,
+please note that PO files do not have a way to mark a translation as "to be
+reviewed". Most teams who want to review translated file before submitting them
+agree to mark new and modified translations as "Fuzzy" in Pootle, so that
+reviewers can immediately see what has changed and "unfuzzy" those strings
+after verifying that the translation is correct.
