I am a backgammon player in Taiwan, found this program is really useful and have a lot of fun,and I want to share it to my friend in my country,
but I don't have any background of programming,
so what can I do if I want to provide a translation?

To add a translation you need to create a .po file for the language. It contains the translations of the messages used by the program (not necessarily all of them -- the missing ones will remain in english).

See for instance this message to the list and the follow-up by Guido Flohr : http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnubg/2013-03/msg00016.html

There is already a partial japanese translation and, as far as I can tell, it contains kanjis, not just simpler characters, so I suppose a chinese translation would be supported as well.

You could take a look at the po files for gnubg at http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/gnubg/gnubg/po/
and to some zh.po files for other software, for instance at
to get an idea of what is needed.
