I got a notice of a fault in the uploaded PO file

Asked by Wim Vleeshhouwer on 2011-10-13

I just got a message saying there is a fault in the uploaded nl.po file:PO file: duplicate msgid ending on line 8932

I used NoteTab light, which, unfortunately does not display linenumbers. I do not have any other program with this feature either, so I cannot find the error.
I have made a number of changes and saved it again. I think the file extension may be wrong, as it now shows on my screen as a file to be opened with Notepad or Wordpad.
Please have a look at the file again, and please let me know where to look.

Regards, Wim Vleeshhouwer

Try using another editor like the free Notepad++ <http://notepad-plus-plus.org/> to find the issue in the file.

Can try to edit it with poedit (http://www.poedit.net) and see it you can fix the problem with that editor?
