intltool is a set of tools to centralize translation of many different file formats using GNU gettext-compatible PO files. The intltool collection can be used to do these things:

  • Extract translatable strings from various source files (, glade,,,
  • Collect the extracted strings together with messages from traditional source files (.c, .h) in po/$(PACKAGE).pot.
  • Merge back the translations from .po files into .xml, .desktop and oaf files. This merge step will happen at build resp. installation time.
