Hi Marcos,

I hope your issue has already been solved, but...

... no, it's not possible to do that. If you want to merge the PO
template, you need to use the gettext distribution from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gettext for win32. It provides the
msgmerge program you had for linux to do the merging for the template

When you want to maintain a branch translation, you need to use
po-merge.py to transfer translations from the trunk to the branch.

I hope that clarifies things? If not, please tell me.
