I seriously wish that this would be added to the official development guide.
The solution has been posted here, the first was by Serial, he was replying to me since I had the same issue.
What you have to do is:
1. download Gettext like v0.21, from the following github:
2. extract it somewhere, then set the path before running scons pot.
of course change it depending on the path you are going to extract in.
After that, scons pot should work as expected.

Apologies for sending several messages to the list today. I am new to the translating process of add-ons, so bare with me please.
I have a problem with running the command scons pot. The command produces 4 errors for 4 missing dlls after it tried to execute the xgettext exe file. I am using a virtual python environment with all the dependencies installed using pip. The dependencies are: markdown, scons, gettext. I also have downloaded gettext build using the link in the add-on development guide, installed it, and copied the xgettextexe and msfmt.exe files to the add-on directory.
After doing all of this, and while the environment is active of course, I am getting the mentioned missing dll errors. What am I doing wrong?
Any help will be much appreciated!
