Application_ru.qm is not detected automatically
I try to translate an application to russian and can't figure out how to do it properly.
I have managed to get .qm file as being told at http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/linguist-programmers.html.
Now there is a phrase at http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/linguist-manager.html saying:
bq. Once the QM files are available the application will detect them and use them automatically
I rebuild an application but there is no russian translation.
What other things should I check/do to get it working?
I test on laptop with locale:
My .pro part of file:
SOURCES = *.qml
TRANSLATIONS = tabatarium_ru.ts
All translations in .ts file are "finished".
You need to use "QTranslator":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qtranslator.html to load the QM file.

Should translation files be included into resource file or placed next to executable?

That is entirely up to you, depends on which you like more. I would recommend placing them next to the executable (for example, in "translations" folder), because it allows you to update the translation (or even add a new one) without having to compile and distribute your application binary again.
ok, thx a lot!
