SlippyCheeze: This is for the Guild Hall Button add-on.

I know that .po files can be hand-edited but that strikes me as state-of-the-art 1998 and isn't something I'd ask a volunteer to do, because I wouldn't want to do it myself.

The ESO approach to internationalization is catgets-style, which I heartily dislike. So I'm emulating gettext, and asking volunteers to work with .po files that I then convert into xx.lua files. That way I, and they, get the convenience of gettext, at the small cost of writing a .po file parser.

There are nice tools for .po files, but I haven't found anything remotely comparable for catgets catalogues.
