It is that simple. However, you should give a try to kbabel which is
way easier to edit .po files.
It also has useful checks about the .po, such punctuation, right
number of placeholer in translated string compared to the original
one, and so on.

Do not forget to "msgfmt eo.po" to check syntax if you edit it by hand.
