Re: How to Replace Word Supplier with Vendor in Reporting System

Change the word "Supplier" in the translated string in the .po file and compile and use the .mo file.

Here is what I used in bash:

grep "Supplier" empty.po > msgid.txt
grep "Supplier" empty.po | sed -e "s/Supplier/Vendor/g" | sed -e "s/^msgid/msgstr/g" > msgstr.txt
msgunfmt -i en_US.mo -o en_US.po
## Append the output of the following to en_US.po
exec 6<"msgstr.txt"
while read -r line
do
    read -r f2line <&6
    echo
    echo "${line}"
    echo "${f2line}"
done <"msgid.txt"
exec 6<&-
## Re-compile the .mo file
msgfmt en_US.po -o en_US.mo

The resultant output is attached for use.
