Well, I'm not a translator, but I know ppl that are. We use gettext both in pgAdmin III (which supports over 30 languages, at least a couple of which are rtl iirc) and on it's website and my understanding is that it is a nice and convenient method. Apps like poEdit make it easy to see untranslated or updated strings and translate them. Also, Peter Eisentraut suggested gettext and he is certainly experienced in these issues.

So, are we happy to update CVS and whichever dev vhost you are using to this version and think about what else needs doing before we can go live?

Regards, Dave.
