    Hi, somehow I am not getting the translation work.
    I am editing the en_US.po translation with POedit. Save it. Upload the modified files. Clearing wordpress cache, reloading, and still the same old strings... I am missing some step, but can not find it.

    Thanks. :)

    You should save .po file and compile or update binary .mo file in PoEdit. After this translation will be updated on server.
