Those strings are translated through the Questions themselves.

For example to alter ‘First Name’ you need to go to Event Espresso -> Questions.

Edit the ‘First Name’ question –

Then change the text to what ou want to be displayed –

Then on the registration form that text will display –

To translate the default ‘This field is required.’ search for ‘This field is required’ (no full stop/period)

Hi Markus, did you get the source file from POEdit or did you download a copy from GlotPress?

Also, did you replace the PO and the MO files in this location?
