    4444for a Plone translation). Some of these are sentences or paragraphs, but the major part are one or 
    4545two words. These strings are scattered around in Plone, for example in page templates. Other items 
    4646to translate are widget labels, and workflow states. All those strings are collected in master 
    47 files. Currently eduCommons contains six .pot files. Each language requires its own .po files that

    84 eduCommons.po). Remember, unless there is already an existing translation available, you need 
    85 to grab the .pot files.</p>
