Great, we have a new developer/translator!

Try looking at msdn.microsoft.com and/or Wine (www.winehq.com) code.

We don't have lot things to translate yet. (Currently there is only one -
the Explorer :-) When the project will get more mature...

I could do some things here if you pont me exactly where is the code, I got

I know what's wrong.
1) When you compile with MSYS, you need to change SEP := \$(EMPTY_VAR) to
SEP := / in rules.mak.
2) or you can try "mingw32-make" instead of "make"
