I've been following the localization tutorial found here: http://docs.orchardproject.net/Documentation/Creating-global-ready-applications. The steps are simple and easy to follow. I've downloaded the translation package from http://orchardproject.net/localization, installed it from command line, added French culture and set it as default for site.

Aaaaaaand absolutely nothing happened.

I've verified that the .po files are properly installed and present in appropriate subfolders. I'm running Orchard from Visual Studio 2013 with full course, everything else is working just fine. But translations are just not showing up. Any ideas?
