I tried to download lo-build-nl.po from

however, I got a truncated? file with 377 messages instead of the
mentioned 1480 messages.

No, you're just confused by numbers a bit. :)

In your file, 1480 WORDS need attention. Total count of MESSAGES is 377
in all languages.



I consider mentioning the word count to be silly. The gettext application
msgfmt shows messages (translated, untranslated and fuzzy).

Having both counted (words and messages) is non-silly ;-)

Say I have a file with 4 untranslated MESSAGES but 200 WORDS, and another one with 200 untranslated MESSAGES but 300 WORDS; I might choose different CAT-tools for translating. Possibly I'd attack the former with OmegaT and the latter with Lokalize/KBabel/PoEdit or whatever.

Most of the tools count primarily the MESSAGES, but the WORD-count is also nice to have.
