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

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

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -n     suppress trailing	newline

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

       [TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID
	      retrieve translated message corresponding	to MSGID from  TEXTDO-
	      MAIN

   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  se-
       lected  catalog	are  translated.   Standard search directory: /usr/lo-
       cal/share/locale
