Hi Gunther,

welcome to the mailing-list.

You could start at the i18n.xfce.org web page some very useful 
information is to be found there as well as scripts to create the 
working SVN directories you will need to translate Xfce to your language.

To answer your question, POedit, the only app I use so I can't tell for 
the others but they most probably have the same feature, can generate a 
.mo file that you have to rename to the PACKAGE.mo file you were working 
on and place it in /usr/share/locale/ADD_YOUR_LANGUAGE_HERE/LC_MESSAGES/ 
. This replaces the actual translated file with your translation so you 
just need to launch the application to verify your work.

You're welcome.
