GNU `gettext' is an important step for the GNU Translation Project, as it is an asset on which we may build many other steps. gettext package offers to programmers, translators, and even users, a well integrated set of tools and documentation.
Specifically, the GNU `gettext' utilities are a set of tools that provides a framework to help other GNU packages produce multi-lingual messages.
These tools include a set of conventions about how programs should be written to support message catalogs, a directory and file naming organization for the message catalogs themselves, a runtime library supporting the retrieval of translated messages, and a few stand-alone programs to massage in various ways the sets of translatable strings, or already translated strings.
A special GNU Emacs mode also helps interested parties in preparing these sets, or bringing them up to date.
