Cool, thank you!

If you have a Debian GNU/Linux at hand and are interested in help with 
compiling you can ask me questions by mail or in #gpg4win on freenode IRC.

The INSTALL instructions should work and I would be interested where you 
failed to improve the instructions.

To be honest I don't keep proper track on dependencies and e.g. rely on new 
GPGME features as soon as they are added :-/ Sorry. The NEED_GPGME_VERSION 
part in your patch is also correct. ;-)

But test the new translation yo do not need to recompile GpgOL.

Just run msgfmt on the po file and copy the resulting  gpgol.mo to

GpgOL should pick it up automatically.

Basically what you prefer. Patches done with git format-patch are good, but If 
you give me a ping saying that you've updated your github clone I can also 
fetch the patch.

Again thanks!
Can I also interest you in translating GpgEX and the Gpg4win Installer? :-P
