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

es_ES.mo
es_ES.po

The es_ES.mo file is generated automatically by Poedit when you save the changes to your es_ES.po file. All you have to do now is upload the new edited files back to your server.

Note: Make sure you refresh your browser and delete your cache if you have a cache plugin installed.

  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
