need help with gettext

I'm following the wiki instructions for using gettext:

I run 'rake updatepo' and it creates a myapp.pot file in rails_root/po. I then create a sub-directory (rails_root/po/en_GB) and copy a translated myapp.pot into it. When I run 'rake makemo' it doesn't create a 'locale' folder like I expect it to. The task doesn't produce any errors either

can anyone suggest where I might be going wrong? alan

Did you rename the translated file to ".po"? I believe the makemo task looks for .po files, so if you left the .pot extension on by mistake, it might get skipped.

Hope this helps.
