    1919If you're opposed to using Transifex there are two other methods you could use to send us translations. These cause slightly more overhead for us, so we try to avoid them.
    2020 1. By [/newticket creating a new ticket] and attaching your translation file.  Please provide your full name, a contact email address, and the language and country code for your translation.

    23 === Stripping line numbers ===
    24 An older version of this document requested that translators strip line number information from .po files before submitting or committing them by running `XGETTEXT_ARGS=--no-location intltool-update LL`. This is now part of our release process and it is no longer necessary for translators to do this.

Before you commit a translation update, please strip line numbers from the .po file by running `XGETTEXT_ARGS=--no-location intltool-update LL`. This makes the diff smaller and more human-friendly.
