Virtaal is a graphical translation tool. It is meant to be easy to use and powerful at the same time. Although the initial focus is on software translation (localisation or l10n), we definitely intend it to be useful for several purposes.

While it can translate many formats its primary focus is on Gettext PO and XLIFF files.

You can also export your Gettext PO files to compiled MO files for work in translation of Wordpress themes.

Continuously crashes on Mac OS X Lion. Unusable. Anyway I figure out to check the tutorial and if it becomes stable, it could be worth. More work… Switched to Poedit.
