Translation of plugins - dont have a .mo file

Hello,

your support is great! I really apreciate it! :slight_smile:

But one problem still remains - it should be clear enough I guess but I still don't get it.

When I want to have a plugin in another language than English I know now that I can take a look if there already is a translation of the plugin into my prefered language.

Let's say there is - I click on export to get the files and load them up on my webserver into /wp-content/plugin_name/languages (or some similar path).

But: I do only get .po files when clicking on the "Export" Button. Where do I get the .mo file from? Or do I need a software to create the .mo file?

Thanks a lot for your help,
Fabian
