PO Gettext files

PO files are localization files, mostly used for writing multilingual programs on Unix computers. PO Gettext files are bilingual and can contain a single source and target language.

memoQ can directly work with PO Gettext files. The exported file is bilingual.

How to get here

  1. Start importing a PO Gettext (.po) file.
  2. In the Document import options window, select the PO Gettext files, and click Change filter and configuration.
  3. The Document import settings window appears. From the Filter drop-down list, choose PO Gettext filter.


What can you do?

When you finish

In the Document import options window: Click OK again to start importing the documents.

  • If this is a cascading filter, you can change the settings of another filter in the chain: Click the name of the filter at the top of the window.

It is possible to cascade filters after the bilingual and multilingual filters. For example, Multilingual Excel and delimited text can be the first filter in a filter chain, but remember that regex tagger should always be the last filter applied.
