Translations of GUI created with Glade, Python

A friend of mine is developing a program in Python. The GUI is created with Glade.

I meanwhile found out that Glade will create a subdirectory with a .pot file containing the translatable strings, which I can translate (e.g. with Gtranslator).

My questions now:
- What file name must the translated file use?
- Has this file to be "compiled" in some way? (Remember, it should be used by a python script.
- How can I make the python program use the translations?

If they're standard .pot, the translated ones should be .po (filename.pot -> filename.po). They're translated to the form used by the programs using msgfmt.
