    Yes, exactly what I meant. You just replace translation which was
installed with your existing software and that software starts to use it
on next launch (in case of pcmanfm it is required to kill existing one
because pcmanfm uses single-instance approach).

I´m sorry but not so simple. Libfm pootle files are from master branch. This means that if we compile it some strings will not appear correct. Some strings in master branch are not the same in stable release.

    Until you press the button "Commit to VCS", your translation is
visible only on Pootle server, and when you press that button it is
submitting into sources, so if you want that translation to be used, you
should always press it after work is done.

Correct. You should always do this. If not, other people work could be compromised.
