Creating the POT File

You might have to wait a few minutes for your domainified file to appear in the Subversion repository. (You can use the link to the Trac browser at the top of the Admin page to check the file's modification time.) Once it's there, you can use it to create the POT (Portable Object Template) file. This is the file that will contain all the translatable strings for your future translators to work with.

Choose the trunk or the appropriate tag from the dropdown menu and press Get POT. The POT file will be downloaded to your computer. Place it somewhere in your plugin directory. I like to create a languages subdirectory to hold the POT file and any translations, but this is entirely up to you.
