Until now, you only translated the strings in TSVN. But now, we can
create a pot file for our docs (the ones in docbook format, which are
used to create the help file) too.

Now, you can even use poEdit to translate the docs, not just the program
strings. Of course, that's only if you want to. There are much more
strings to translate in the docs than just in the program, and it will
require *a lot* of work to get that done.
But it's definitely easier (to translate and also to keep up with the
changes) to use poEdit for the docs too instead of translating the xml
