GETTEXT(1)                            GNU                           GETTEXT(1)



NAME
       gettext - translate message

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  gettext program translates a natural language message into the user's language, by looking up the transla-
       tion 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 corresponding to MSGID from TEXTDOMAIN

       If the TEXTDOMAIN parameter is not given, the domain is determined from the  environment  variable  TEXTDOMAIN.
       If  the message catalog is not found in the regular directory, another location can be specified with the envi-
       ronment variable 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 messages found in the selected catalog are
       translated.  Standard search directory: /usr/share/locale
