There are three possible causes of this problem:
  - The English string in the source code is encoded in a different
    encoding than in the PO file. (Maybe ISO-8859-1 in one and UTF-8 in
    the other.)
  - You are not using glibc >= 2.3.3 (on glibc systems) or
    libintl from GNU gettext >= 0.13 (on non-glibc systems).
  - You are not using msgfmt from GNU gettext >= 0.13.
