NAME

       itstool - convert between XML and PO using ITS

SYNOPSIS

       itstool [OPTIONS] [XMLFILES]
       itstool -m <MOFILE> [OPTIONS] [XMLFILES]

DESCRIPTION

       itstool  extracts  messages  from  XML  files  and  outputs PO template files, then merges
       translations from MO files to create translated XML files. It determines what to translate
       and how to chunk it into messages using the W3C Internationalization Tag Set (ITS).

       To extract messages from XML files FILES and output them to OUT.pot:

       itstool -o OUT.pot FILES

       After  merging with existing translations or translating strings, generate an MO file with
       msgfmt(1), then output translated files to the directory DIR:

       itstool -m OUT.mo -o DIR FILES

       ITS definitions are loaded from the built-in rules,  rules  embedded  in  the  source  XML
       files,  files passed with the -i option, and ITS attributes in the source XML files. Later
       definitions take precedence.
