NAME

gettext - translate message 

SYNOPSIS

gettext[OPTION] [[TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID]
gettext[OPTION] -s [MSGID]... 

DESCRIPTION

The gettext program translates a natural language message into theuser's language, by looking up the translation in a message catalog.

Display native language translation of a textual message.

-d, --domain=TEXTDOMAIN
retrieve translated messages from TEXTDOMAIN
-e
enable expansion of some escape sequences
-E
(ignored for compatibility)
-h, --help
display this help and exit
-n
suppress trailing newline
-V, --version
display version information and exit
[TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID
retrieve translated message correspondingto MSGID from TEXTDOMAIN

If the TEXTDOMAIN parameter is not given, the domain is determined from theenvironment variable TEXTDOMAIN. If the message catalog is not found in theregular directory, another location can be specified with the environmentvariable TEXTDOMAINDIR.When used with the -s option the program behaves like the `echo' command.But it does not simply copy its arguments to stdout. Instead those messagesfound in the selected catalog are translated.Standard search directory: /usr/share/locale
