You don't have to finish the translation before you can upload the po,
however, uploading it frequently causes a little more work for us.  Users only
get the new translation when there is a new release of Pidgin, so you don't
gain very much by uploading early.

We generally make an announcement on this mailing list a few days before we
release a new version.  During those days we hope that translators will update
their .po file to account for any new strings, and submit the new file to us
using trac:

I think you need to convert the .po file to a .mo file, and then install it to
$PREFIX/share/$LANG/LC_MESSAGES/  I don't know how to do that off
the top of my head, but I think I might look it up.  If I figure it out before
someone else responds I'll let you know.
