[PD] more to translate: the new documentation system (aka search-plugin)

Ok, so there is now an almost complete Greek translation and a 55% Italian translation :-).  In the process of adding the new translations, I found two strings that I had missed before, that's why the Greek one is now missing two translations. Let me know if you see something that is not translatable or has display issues, like not enough width, etc.

You can generate and try the translations yourself if you have 'gettext' installed on your machine.  On Debian/Ubuntu/etc its 'apt-get install gettext'.  For Mac OS X, you have to get it from Fink, MacPorts, or brew.  For Fink its 'fink install gettext-tools'.

Getting the source from svn is probably easiest, do this in either ~/pd-externals (GNU/Linux) or ~/Library/Pd (Mac OS X:

svn checkout https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/trunk/scripts/guiplugins/search-plugin

Then to make the translations, do:

cd search-plugin/po

Just make sure you've downloaded the file "for use" and copied it in place of the one that's in search-plugin/po.

This is included in Pd-extended 0.43.4 by default.  It can also be localized, but its a separate translation project from Pd itself (it shares basically no strings anyway).
