  3. Launch Poedit and click on Create new translation. Navigate to the location of the affiliate-linkalizer-amazon.pot file.

Go to File → Save As… to save your translation to .po and .mo files. The file naming convention to use is affiliate-linkalizer-amazonlanguage_country.po, where language is one of the language codes, and country is one of the country codes. For example, if the translation is in French, the file name would be affiliate-linkalizer-amazon-fr_FR.po.
