Step 1 ) Open Poedit, click on Open and locate your po file to edit. In this example I am going to edit es_ES.po. See image below.


Step 2 ) The es_ES.po file is open for editing. You can see many entries here. See image below.


Step 3 ) Locate the Source text entry you wish to change and click on the source text entry to display below for editing.

I am going to edit Center. In this example I am going to change Centrar in the Translation: area. See image below.

Hint: Only change the Translation: entry


Step 4 ) I have changed the text to El Centro. Of course you can make any number of changes that suit your needs. This allows you to make your translation more personal. See image below.


Step 5 ) Once you have completed all the changes, click on Save. See image below.


Step 6 ) After saving your changes, go back to the source “The location where you open the file to edit”. You will have two files with updated entries, in my example the translated files are:


The es_ES.mo file is generated automatically when you save the changes to your es_ES.po file. All you have to do now is copy the new edited files back to your server. Refresh your browser and you should see your new changes. See image below.

  1. Hi,
    If you’re interested to localize web software, PC software, mobile software or any other type of software, I warmly recommend a new l10n tool that my team recently developed and will probably make your work a lot faster and easier: http://poeditor.com/
    POEditor is intuitive and collaborative and has a lot of useful features to help your translations management process, which you can find enlisted on our website.
    You can import from multiple localization file formats (like pot, po, xls, xlsx, strings, xml, resx, properties) or just use our REST API.
    Feel free to try it out and recommend it to developers and everyone who might find it useful.

    • Hello and thank you for your comment. It looks promising your new developed software. I am sure that many readers will find this software to be a great tool to add to their list.

      Thank you for sharing.

      Kind regards
