I want to translate and use Nagios Core 4.3.4 version web interface with Turkish language.
Is it possible with creating locale .po file and compiling as .mo? Or do you have any suggesstion?

I think @mcapra's answer pretty much covered everything. Let me know if you have any other questions for us so far?
