Does POEdit integrate the gettext "msgfmt -cv" check? If so, Nguyên  
could do his checks from inside the program. But if not, he still  
needs to be able to check his translation for errors.

I use LocFactoryEditor, which integrates the gettext functions, but  
it's only available for Mac OSX. However, I also use gettext itself,  
since it's a very useful package for translators. For example, I can  
use it with find to update files, or check for errors, across a whole  
tree of files. Creating a compendium from files at different  
directory levels also works better with gettext from the shell.
