Ok, now I have .ts file, I did translate the strings, and produced the
.qm file.

So my next questions are:
1) how do I include the qm file in the rpm ? Should I put it in a
specific directory, or directly in /usr/share/MyApp ?

2) is there something special I need to do in my app to trigger the
magic, or is using qsTr() in the qml files sufficient to to make it
happen ?

3) Is there a way I can test if it is working from within the SDK (I
did not receive my device yet...) ? Should I ssh into the emulator and
play with LC_ALL, or is there another way ?

Thanks in advance,

which consists in listing the qml files this way in the .pro file:
