The easiest way is to build PSPP in the normal way.  Copy your modified .po
file into the po/ directory, rebuild and re-install.  This will automatically
regenerate the .mo file and install it.

Like Harry says, the best way is to submit it through the regular channels
at  - They have a "robot" which checks for
various problems so if it get's through the robot, you can be fairly sure
that the translated file is technically correct. Of course it can't check
for linguistic issues ....

Note that one of the things the robot checks for is that the necessary
disclaimer is on file, which is annoying but necessary.
