Dear Mesar,

I am fine. Thank you for fixing the po file. I use both Notepad++ and
Poedit. Notepad++ for translating and Poedit to compile the mo file so
that I can test it.

In future, I shall ensure that the file is not utf8-bom and only utf8.
 The option is in the "encoding" menu in Notepad++.

Thanks again.
