Is there a Portuguese language pack for askbot?

Hi, I am building a askbot Q&A website for my students. They do not speak English and this is the reason I am not telling them to use international Q&A websites. This is also a problem because I would like them to understand the website. I'be noticed that there is a pt_br folder in the localization folder, but if I change the LANGUAGE_CODE in the to pt_br, the website is only "half-translated". I imagine that the language pack is not completed? Is there any completed language pack for portuguese? I found this link: , downloaded, but I have no idea what I should do with the files.

I also tried to use rosetta (by using myAskbotUrl/rosetta/ ), but I get a 404. Could someone help me setting this website for my students?

You can edit .po files and compile them to make .mo files using the command python compilemessages Then you want to copy the .mo files into askbot/locale/pt/LC_MESSAGES to update them.
