CA - Providence translation


I have forked the Providence repo and installed CA 1.7.8 with Installation Profile set to [Testing] Profile for test cases. Then I logged in with the administrator user provided after the installation finished and set User Inteface locale to português (Portugal) in menu Manage > My Preferences.
I edited some dashboard message strings in Providence > app > locale > pt_PT > messages.po and generated the corresponding messages.po file using command: msgfmt messages.po -o
However, when reloading the dashboard page, the edited message strings are not updated (the default pt_EN text is still displayed). Could You please advise on the procedure for testing translations on a local installation?
