Hi Kadal,
I've already tried to explain this, but I'll try to be clearer.

You are currently helping with the (important) task of 
translating/fixing the
website. This has nothing, really nothing, to do with translating the 
OpenOffice program into Tamil.

PO files are only needed to translate the OpenOffice program into Tamil. 
This is what Kannan and SR Kumar will hopefully start now. Documentation 
for working with PO files is available at
but, again, it is not needed for what you (Kadal) are currently doing. 
Of course, if after the website you have time to help with the program 
translation I think your help will be welcome there too! But I'd 
recommend to let Kannan and SR Kumar start this task now; it's good to 
have several volunteers working in parallel on different tasks.
