  • I’m trying to correct some pretty appalling English in the Woocommerce plugin, since I’m too embarrassed to have such schoolboy errors on my website. Here’s an example:
    “enter your state/county and zip/postcode to ensure their are no other available methods”.
    I’ve downloaded POEdit, which has to be the least intuitive piece of software I’ve ever come across. Having opened the woocommerce-en_GB.po file and corrected the entry, I saved the file and uploaded the new woocommerce-en_GB.mo file that was created when I saved the file, but the change hasn’t applied. The .mo file is only 1.22kb in size, while all the other languages .mo files are much larger, maybe 165kb. It looks like my new .mo file contains ONLY the edited text I’d applied on one entry, rather than ALL the entries including the one I’ve changed. How does this thing work – all I’m trying to do is change the display of a single text entry!
