Japanese can be tricky.  Context makes a difference.  Maybe someone fluent in Japanese can shed more light on it but I remember when ordering something like "yakatori kudasai", or "Kirin kudasai" (I used this one alot  ;D) means "Please bring me ......"  So I could see either translation being correct.  Again, depending on the context.

Japanese-Russian dictionary says, one of the meanings:
Ganbatte-kudasai! - formal parting words to the worker before challenging work. :)

Ford Mustang is right.
  "Ganbatte kudasai!" does, in fact, mean "Do your best!".
"kudasai" is add for polite usage.
Also "kudasai" is used for " I want .... ",  such as Yakitori kudasai.

We can use  "Ganbatte !" for more casual.
