Learning to use poedit

There is an application that is gettext-ready and that we want to translate using poedit. There is a working installation of poedit, but none of us in the company knows how to use it. Is there a brief tutorial or can someone explain how to use this application? If there is no .po file, should one be created? Is the .po file the only file that has to be edited?

Thanks in advance


EDIT: Overlooked the fairly extensive help file that is included in poedit. Problem solved.

NAME
gettext - translate message SYNOPSIS
gettext [OPTION] [[TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID] gettext [OPTION] -s [MSGID]... DESCRIPTION
The gettext program translates a natural language message into the user's language, by looking up the translation in a message catalog. Display native language translation of a textual message. -d, --domain=TEXTDOMAIN retrieve translated messages from TEXTDOMAIN -e enable expansion of some escape sequences -E (ignored for compatibility) -h, --help display this help and exit -n suppress trailing newline -V, --version display version information and exit [TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID retrieve translated message corresponding to MSGID from TEXTDOMAIN If the TEXTDOMAIN parameter is not given, the domain is determined from the environment variable TEXTDOMAIN. If the message catalog is not found in the regular directory, another location can be specified with the environment variable TEXTDOMAINDIR. When used with the -s option the program behaves like the `echo' command. But it does not simply copy its arguments to stdout. Instead those messages found in the selected catalog are translated.
