Projects / KBabel


KBabel is a set of tools for editing and managing PO files created by gettext. Its main component is a powerful and comfortable PO file editor which features full navigation capabilities, full editing functionality, the ability to search for translations in different dictionaries, spell and syntax checking, showing diffs, and much more. It also includes a "Catalog Manager", which is a file manager view that provides an overview of PO files. Last but not least, it includes a standalone dictionary application which provides the additional capability of accessing KBabel's powerful dictionaries.
