Lazarus dxGetText is a conversion of the dxGetText project (http://dybdahl.dk/dxgettext/). From the dxGetTest website: "Initially, this project used a Windows port of the GNU gettext library, but has made it much further and today it is a complete reimplementation of the GNU gettext library with many enhancements".

With this lib you can create a localizable application with a minimum of work. You do not need to extract all your strings and to transform them into ResourceString.

You use syntax _('message') and the tool for extract... a few moments later, you have a .po file containing all the strings including those of the properties of the objects.

For more informations, see the help: http://dybdahl.dk/dxgettext/docs/online/

Conversion by

Olivier Guilbaud


http://dybdahl.dk/dxgettext/license/ (Seems like some older BSD license with advertising clause... as the page says, it's very liberal, but probably not compatible with GPL programs)


The latest stable release can be found on the Lazarus CCR Files page.
