 +**NOTE** If you have trouble installing your translated .po-files, make sure you are installing your files in valid gettext-standard PO-format. Things to look for include (but not limited to):
 +  * BOM BOM! Gettext tools do not support BOM (http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​BOM)
 +  * Runaway newlines. Some translators like to end their translations to a newline. On each row, msgid and msgstr definitions must have a starting and ending double quote
