Re: Translating BuddyPress
Sounds like you have tried to edit the POT file in a text editor by doing something like a find and replace.
Or – you haven’t filled in all the headers correctly
Download the latest POT here : https://svn.buddypress.org/trunk/bp-languages/buddypress.pot
Before opening in POEDIT, open it in your fav text editor, lines 8 to 16 (assuming word wrap isn’t on) need to be filled in with your own values. Save and close
Open with POEDIT and make your changes in there and save.
