PO gettext is an internationalization and localization (i18n) system commonly used for writing multilingual programs on Unix-like computer operating systems.
The PO gettext file filter by default imports files with the following extensions:
File Import Settings
- Export multi-line strings (This option is selected by default and improves the handling of .PO files with \n tags.)
- Convert to Memsource tags (This uses regular expressions for converting specific text to tags—see our Regexp manual for more information.)
The valid PO gettext file is bilingual, where 'msgid' contains source text and 'msgstr' contains target text.
#: src/name.c:36 msgid "My name is %s.\n" msgstr "Je m'appelle %s.\n"
