I would like to translate DBeaver to my language (Swedish) as a thanks for using it. However, I can't find any .PO files (the common way to do lang) or langpacks. Is this not supported?

Strings and texts are mostly stored in ".properties" files.
DBeaver is composed of various eclipse plugins, a few for core components and usually one per extension (db2, oracle..). Each plugin has usually at least 2 properties file with externalized strings ("" and "<ext>".
Some plugins have only english propery files, some already have russian, italian, chinese translations.
If you perform a "svn checkout" you will easily find them, the code can be accessed anonymously here :
From there, you can create new property file for swedish, and ask to Serge ( to give you a commiter acces, or you can send them to me ( and I can commit them for you. I can also send them to you without you to perform a checkout
It may be easier to become a commiter and build the application yourself and so you'll be abale to test your translations "In context"
