NAME

       Xacobeo::I18n - Utilities for internationalization (i18n).

SYNOPSIS

               # Initialize the i18n framework (done once)
               use FindBin;
               use Xacobeo::I18n;
               Xacobeo::I18n->init("$FindBin::Bin/../share/locale/");

               # Import the i18n utilities (used everywhere where i18n is needed)
               use Xacobeo::I18n;
               print __("Hello world"), "
";

DESCRIPTION

       This package provides utilities that perform i18n. This module relies
       on gettext.

       The initialization of the i18n framework should be performed only once,
       preferably as soon as possible. Once the framework is initialized any
       module requiring to translate a string can include this module.

       This module exports automatically the shortcut functions used for
       translating messages. This is done in order to make the translation
       transparent.
