I noticed pkcon doesn't use its translations at all. I have translated packagekit's fi.po completely, but pkcon doesn't display any of the messages in Finnish on a system with the Finnish locale set. I haven't looked at the code yet at all (I won't have time to in the next few days) but by doing strace it seems pkcon never even reads anything from /usr/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/ An example: $ pkcon install foo Command failed: The package 'foo' could not be installed: The package could not be found Should be translated but is not. $ strace pkcon install foo 2>&1|grep LC_MESSAGES Returns nothing. But if we look at gnome-packagekit: strace gpk-log 2>&1|grep LC_MESSAGES Returns multiple lines, one of which is open("/usr/share/locale/fi/LC_MESSAGES/gnome-packagekit.mo", O_RDONLY) = 3 This is how it should work in pkcon too.
