Each PO file entry for which the
msgstr field has been filled with
a translation, and which is not marked as fuzzy (see Fuzzy Entries),
is said to be a translated entry. Only translated entries will
later be compiled by GNU
msgfmt and become usable in programs.
Other entry types will be excluded; translation will not occur for them.
Some commands are more specifically related to translated entry processing.
Find the next translated entry (
Find the previous translated entry (
The commands t (
po-next-translated-entry) and T
po-previous-translated-entry) move forwards or backwards, chasing
for an translated entry. If none is found, the search is extended and
wraps around in the PO file buffer.
Translated entries usually result from the translator having edited in
a translation for them, Modifying Translations. However, if the
po-auto-fuzzy-on-edit is not
nil, the entry having
received a new translation first becomes a fuzzy entry, which ought to
be later unfuzzied before becoming an official, genuine translated entry.
