While implementing VikBooking plugin I needed a PO editor and though well lets do it quickly online, but then I found this great plugin. No need to browse your WordPress files what I expected, no this nice designed utility shows the plugins and other items where translation files are in use. Open - edit - save and the job is done! Well done & thank you!
...machine translation. I have created a modification of the plugin in order to translate with Yandex Translate (it is free, compared to Google Translate or Bing Translate). To my surprise, translations of most of the texts are pretty damn correct (from English to Bulgarian that is and vice-versa). If the developer or someone else is interested and want to integrate it by default, drop me a note.
I've started using this tool after doing some research. I've been using it every time I have a new plugin update. When some tools decide to change their text inputs. This tool + Poedit are powerful tools to do something tedious in a breeze. Since then, I've not been shy in recommending this tool in a heart beat.
This plugin is amazing. It helps me a lot in translating themes and plugins into my language. Very easy to use! Congratulations to the developers!
