Question How to edit (.mo) files ??!!

Hello.. how can I edit .mo files ??!!
The reason is because that I installed KDE translated interface in my language
but is contain a lot of mistakes.. and the translation team is offline since 2002 !!!!!
so I was wondering if I could edit some (.mo) files in the KDE translation to make it better.
the translation tools could be in Windows or in Linux..
I will appreciate that, and it will help a lot of people out there ..
thank you.

Well, mo files are not to be edited, as they are a kinf of compiled format of po files. For editing po files try kbabel. Try to search for the po files of your language here. Select your language and on the new page search for PO file archives.
