If not mistaken, this is possible to do as you think. I think the
right location though is more likely:
Do you have this file?
You'll still have to override an existing file installed by your
package (so you may want to save it before overriding). But that
NOTE: actually I see in gettext manual that there is a TEXTDOMAINDIR
environment variable. If I understand correctly, if you set it,
gettext should search in $TEXTDOMAINDIR/LC_MESSAGES/pt/TEXTDOMAIN.mo
I suggest you test this. If this works, it will be better.

Do not take my word for perfect. As a developer, I am used to compile
GIMP, so I proposed the way I know. I didn't know poedit would compile
the po into a mo for instance (or probably I forgot. I used to use
poedit years ago, but have not since). Now that I know this, you
probably won't have to bother to all the building part I told about
(all the `configure` and `make` commands part).
You still want to get the last files though, but you may not even have
to clone the whole repository for it. Actually I guess you may just
download it through the web UI:
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp/tree/po/pt.po (click the "plain"
Or if you want to work on the 2.8.* stable version:
This is like 90% of my email directions which can get rid of. :-)
Anyway if you already had some experience with the GNOME translation
team, it is even highly probable that you already know more than me
the procedure. :-) They have access to our repo and all GIMP
localization go through them without passing through developers.
Thanks for your contribution in any cases.
