       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

       -c, --context=CONTEXT
              specify context for MSGID

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -n     suppress trailing newline

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

              retrieve translated message corresponding to MSGID from

   Informative output:
       -h, --help
              display this help and exit

       -V, --version
              display version information and exit

       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:
