We're about to start localizing a wordpress installation with a highly customized theme and several custom plugins. Unfortunately it is not gettext-ready, and also the original theme is not in English.
How would you do this? I'm thinking the best way to do it would be to go through the theme and plugin files, change all static text (currently in Swedish) to gettext-wrapped English, and then do a translation back to Swedish. It sound pretty tedious.
Can we just wrap the Swedish in gettext calls and provide an en_US translation?
Also, any thoughts on tools? WPML, Codestyling Localization, raw poedit, something else?
