It is such a wonderful and simple plugin to translate a plugin. However, I found two things missing. It would be nice to have more precision while deciding the text domain of a plugin and it would be nice if the strings get synced automatically once a plugin is updated. Thanks for such a nice and useful plugin.

I take 1 minute to thank the authors of this plugin, which allows you to carry out an often necessary and difficult job for free, namely that of translating theme strings and plugins.

I downloaded loco translate in order to translate an invoicing plugin that I had recently installed on my website. The loco translate was able to identify the .pot file (also assisted me with correctly naming certain files on my SFTP server too) and generated the correct .po and .mo files in my language folder. Great application overall. I would highly recommend to those who are looking to translate their plugins. Another nice feature is that the plugin allows for automatic translation through professional translation services from Google, Microsoft, and more.
