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 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 corresponding to MSGID from TEXTDO‐
MAIN

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
