Tools for working with gettext PO files

  • Lokalize is the replacement of the old KBabel. It's part of the KDE Applications releases. Lokalize is a Translation Memory based application, which provides more comfort to the translator and prevents unintentional translation mistakes.

KBabel is a set of tools for editing and managing gettext PO files. The main part is a powerful PO file editor with many features including the ability to search for translations in different dictionaries, to show diffs, perform spell and syntax checking, and many more. Also included is a "Catalog Manager", a file manager view which helps keeping an overview of PO files.
