Custom translation – empty .po file

Hi EE,

Besides from my other topic I have some trouble with the translation files. I’ve download the nl_NL .po file from your (github) site and placed it in the EE > languages folder, but when I open the .po file no strings are displayed. So Poedit stays empty and I can’t customize any of the translations.

Where can I find the used .po file for the plugin? It must be there, cause (most of the strings) are translated in my language, but I need some small adjustments.

Please try downloading the files again, as Githubs downloading methods are a bit weird:

To download the PO file – left click the link on the main page and then right click the Raw button in the top right of the page that comes up and save as.

To download the MO file – left click the link on the main page, and then left click the View Raw text link in the middle of the page that comes up.

If you don’t do this you may end up with a MO and PO file that contains garbage data and the language wont work.
