       gettext - translate message


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


       The  gettext  program  translates  a natural language message into the user'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

              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 environment 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
