The translation for the LibreOffice interface and help is maintained by the l10n teams via Pootle. The format of the files there are .po files. The .po files are spread across multiple directories, which makes working with them difficult. By using a tool called 'Translate toolkit' we can modify this structure to get a big .csv file. This .csv file can be added to OmegaT to serve as a glossary. The glossary has a major benefit: while translating, you will be proposed the exact terms used in the menus and the dialog boxes, which is very important for consistency and the quality of the guides.
