.po files are text files in the end, so if you have some $EDITOR 
you like, if it has at least some extensibility it has probably 
support for ediitng po file. Emacs has 
https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/Gettext two modes, the latter 
has some nice functions to support jumping around the file and 
simplifies copying texts between different nodes. vim has 
https://github.com/vim-scripts/po.vim--Jelenak, which has nide 
key shortcuts as well. I am certain that SubEdit, VSCode, and 
Atom will have some support for po files as well.

What I wanted to say that poedit.net is not that super deal as 
it tries to look like. Of course, if anybody likes it, go for
