Lost Two Hours because of Mistake on GlotPress

I spent two hours trying to get files I downloaded from GlotPress to work on a clean WordPress/Event Espresso 4 installation.

When you export a .po file from GlotPress, it’s named “event-espresso-4-en.po”. That name is wrong.

The dash between “event” and “espresso” should be an underscore.

Also, the “-4-” is not correct; it should not be in the filename.

The correct, usable-right-out-of-the-box name should be: “event_espresso-en_US.po”

Please fix GlotPress so it creates a file with a good name and saves the next person the same hours it took me to figure this out.

We are making an adjusting to the core plugin to check for a variation of the filename.
