       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

       If the TEXTDOMAIN parameter is not given, the domain is determined from
       the environment variable TEXTDOMAIN.  If the  message  catalog  is  not

       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:
