How to add a language translation from svn?

As Kevin said, you must "translate" PO files into (binary) MO files.
msgfmt utility (from gettext package) might be used to do that:

$ msgfmt -o file.po

Then, MO files should be put into 

Additionally, you need 
file. Without it, you won't be able to pick up Tamil from list of
existing languages. Simplified file content is below:

[KCM Locale]
Name[ta]=Tamil in Tamil

On my system, localization files are owned by user root, group root, and
have 644 permissions.

Hope that helps
