Generating .po files with poEdit

Post by MISIIM » Sat Nov 08, 2008 10:52 am

Can someone tell me how to generate a .po file with poEdit. I can't find anywhere that says how to do this. Thanks.

You don't generate a .po file WITH poEdit. You first generate a .po file with xgettext, then use poEdit (or any other text editor) to translate the strings to localize.

You can do a quick search in this forum with the following terms:
xgettext
i18n (stands for internationalization)
wxLocale
poEdit

Moreover, there must be a sample for localization in wxWidgets samples directory (its name is i18n).

Regards,
Bénédicte

You didn't state your platform.

This document explains it well for at least mac and linux : http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Internationalization
