How to add and modify .mo file

    To edit a .mo file you first need to have the .po version of it.

    Then you can edit it with POEDIT

    If you don’t have any of those things, first get POEDIT

    http://www.poedit.net/download.php

    If you only have a .mo file and not the .po but wish to add/edit the translations, you can “decompile” or reverse the .mo file into a .po file from the command line with poedit , ie.

    START -> RUN

    /program files/poedit/bin/msgunfmt ab_AB.mo > ab_AB.po

    Thank you, so much !

    I’m updating the italian version of the language file,

    i found several mistakes and missing translations in that file.

    Would you like to have a copy of file with the right words ?

    The svn looks badly out of date for Italian

    http://svn.automattic.com/bbpress-i18n/it_IT/tags/

    so you if you want to link your results here and state which version it is for we’ll see if Sam or Michael can update the SVN…

    I use a Mac and I tried the terminal command changing what is need under osx with this

    /Applications/BBEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/BBEdit msgunfmt /[here I put my path]/enigma2.mo > [here I put my path]/enigma2.po

    It actually tries do perform something but it just creates a zero length file.

    Terminal produces the errors I’ll report afterwards: what can I do?
    Isn’t there a way to use .po edit directly from its interface to perform the .mo-.po transformation?

    @alexwilmac no idea what you are trying to do, but you will need to use a proper tool to manipulate and change .mo files.

    If you at just after a coupe of changes easier to use ‘gettext’ in a child theme functions file.

    Perhaps come back with some further details

    I’m simply trying to do what’s written in post#2, to perform this online command
    /program files/poedit/bin/msgunfmt ab_AB.mo > ab_AB.po

    not under Windows but under OsX, instead. This means that the same example under oSx would be

    /Applications/BBEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/BBEdit msgunfmt ab_AB.mo > ab_AB.po

    Only it produces a zero length file .po and the errors I reported.

    Sorry, I posted a wrong command with BBedit and not Poedit. But the result it’s the same with Poedit.

    Actually your link was the opposite I needed (po to mo, but this is not a problem, as Poedit it’s able to produce .mo files from .po
    But I found another one that, at least for now, works:

    great – glad you’re fixed !!

    Hi @alexwilmac,
    Are you trying to update bbPress translation? Because that’s all centrally managed, so better do it there. If you need any help with that, just leave me a message here.
