Why sometimes translation works and sometimes not?

I made two installations of Askbot one remote and one local, same files, same structure, etc... In the remote installation translation seems to work fine now, but in the local one some texts are translated and some not.

I already compiled the messages, etc.

I solved my issue doing this:

  1. I delete the compiled .mo files (they were compiled in another OS, maybe that was the problem?)

  2. re-compile the translations :)

Recompiling should be enough, the files will be automatically overwritten. According to gettext manual, the .mo files may not be portable, but .po are.
