eXtrans translates XML documents into other formats or representations. It can output formats HTML, XML, LateX, pictures, sound, or anything else that the python language can manipulate. Those translations are driven by abstract translators (xtrans scripts) embedding python code. The translators are easy to write, since the underlying system habdles all the complicated details of XML parsing, reference resolving, file management and even python programming in a way transparent to the user. This distribution includes GimpClient, a python module for communicating with Gimp. Through it, xtrans scripts can efficiently access a powerful graphics program.
