If you are translating a plug-in or a theme, this plug-in is a must-have. It allows you to pull your translations from translate.wordpress.org into your website to see these translations in context – which is often the only way to tell whether something is well translated or not. In the most recent version of the plug-in, this works not only for plug-in translations but for theme translations as well. Easy to use, works fine.

I am so glad to find this plugin. We have international users for our plugin that help out by submitting translations. The problem is, there is no way for them to use the translations until it goes through a formal approval process. This is a wonderful solution, we can point our users to this plugin so they can use the translations right away. Thanks so much for making this!

Bad description of the features in the readme: no possibility to import translations for themes. Bad support.
