Thank you! After resolving some problems with my xgettext command, 
everything went ok.

Yes, you are totally right, but grassmods is partially translated and 
grasstcl is smaller ;-)

And now, one question. In spanish as in other latin languages there are 
two "ways" of talking and writting. The formal and the colloquial one. I 
mean, not as in english, for example, that in all cases "you" is used. 
So, which one do I use for the translation?
I don't know if I'm clear :-(
