Can someone point me to some step-by-step guide on extracting the POT file from my WP theme?

I recommend Codestyling Localization plugin – it automatically scans your theme or plugin and creates a .po file. It’s also a good tool for translating a theme or a plugin.

I second this. You can translate everything from your wp-admin with a nice interface. Poedit is a pain to use.

Thanks guys, that helped a lot! I’m now done with the translation for my client. I’ve used the poedit way, the part about the paths was a bit confusing though.

It doesn’t work on my local WP 3 .2.1:

  • 1) All popups display just -1
  • 2) enable low memory mode doesn’t work, checkbox is always unchecked

Anyone had similar problems?
