There is a handy app called "rosetta" - you can just install it and then you should be able to edit the .po files.

Also - the files are plain text - editable in any text editor.

To compile:

cd askbot
python ../manage.py compilemessages


And to rebuild the file:

cd askbot
python ../manage.py jinja2_makemessages -l en -e html,py,txt


Please note that the compilation command is different from django standard because askbot uses jinja2 templates.
