  1. Update from sources
    • Start Poedit and select the appropriate project and language you want to work on, this will open the Poedit with the appropriate .po file
    • Click on the wheel icon or select Catalog/Update from sources
  2. Review strings marked as "fuzzy" (yellow) or "not translated (greenish)
  3. When done save it and Poedit will create the .mo file (unless you changed your Preferences/Editor
