Add or update the app translations using Poedit.

Developer note:

  • use grunt gettext to extract the labels from the code and update the template file (template.pot)
  • use scripts/ to update current existing *.po language files based on the template (before editing them)
  • use grunt compiletext to regenerate *.json language files (these are what the IDE really need) to test them

Developer note: use export NWJS_BUILD_TYPE=sdk after npm install to enable the chrome web console.
