What’s this?

Ruby-GetText-Package is a Localization(L10n) library and tool
which is modeled after the GNU gettext package.

This library translates original messages to localized
messages using client-side locale information(environment
variable, using system locale API or CGI variable).

The tools for developers support creating, useing, and modifying
localized message files(message catalogs).
