of our translation process. Thanks!

Ah, I see.

We have the .po files included, but the .pot not (currently).

We have 3 types of .po files per language (see locale/po/):

- grasslibs_LANG.po: messages from libraries
- grassmods_LANG.po: messages from commands ("modules")
- grasstcl_LANG.po:  messages from TclTk graphical user interface

Can it work with those 3 files per language?

I'll start uploading after confirmation that our structure works.

Thanks again
