GETTEXT(1)                                                 User Commands                                                 GETTEXT(1)

       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 mes‐
       sage 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 TEXTDOMAIN

   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 TEXTDO‐
       MAINDIR.  When used with the -s option the program behaves like the 'echo' command.  But it does not simply copy  its  argu‐
       ments  to  stdout.   Instead  those  messages  found  in  the  selected  catalog are translated.  Standard search directory:
