You can use poEdit to easily extract your strings, then save the 
resultant file as [name].pot. However, in order to get your plugin 
correctly tagged, you must use the function 
load_plugin_textdomain('[name]') and add this textdomain to your tags 
like this: __('[some text string]', '[name]'). [name] could be an 
abbreviated version of your plugin's name; the different languages .po 
files shuld be named as [name]_xx.XX.po, where xx.XX is the locale for 
that language.
