7 - use the template .pot file (e.g. sat.pot) and name it to your translated language (e.g. fr.po for french); you can preferably generate a new template directly from the source with the following command (eventually adapted, the following command use zsh's globbing syntax), launched from root sat dir after having emptied the build directory:
