Hi list,

I've got the same problem, I've made an es_ES file, and want to use it. Ardour 
seems to detect the file and the locales, and try to use it, but only a few 
messages are displayed translated (curious, exactly the same messages that 
Petter say: the punch in/punch out, click + solo/audition part. Nothing 
else), I think they're the first messages in the .po file, (I'm not sure 

I remember the first time I tried that, I could see all the translations in 
Ardour, but since an update to now, I only see those few ones.

The same happens when I change the locale to fr_FR, pt_BR, etc. always just 
the same few messages translated only, not the rest.

Even if I try a uninstall (scons -c install), and reinstall, or a version 
update it doesn't change.

I want to help with the spanish translation of Ardour before the 1.0 release, 
but can't work on it while this problem persists...

Any idea?

I'll try renaming the .po file to es_ES.UTF-8.po, as Taybin suggested...
