    First steps towards Drupal in Malayalam

    The following files are essential to translating the core drupal interface and installation interface.

    In each file place the relevant malayalam words in:
    msgstr ""


    I'll be looking into how to integrate the above into the installer and have the translation for the core interface hosted in the d.o cvs

    The files are in .txt as g.d.o does not allow any file to be uploaded
    You can use any ftp manager to remove the .txt extension.
