I was less than impressed by POEdit. For the use case we had
(not so large application, only a few languages), Excel was 
definitely superior. For large translations, I'd want application
integration, as the texts also have to fit on the screen.
With the right abstractions, I should be able to generate
translation components in the web application. Both in the
sense as showing a translated part of a page, as in showing 
where a text is used. That is something that seems 
difficult to do with gettext. To me, the only advantage 
POEdit Pro seems to have is the reuse of existing translations.
