I am pretty sure that this is possible.  Bruno's code is highly portable.

I don't known.  But there is another option.  For historicial reasons
GnuPG for Windows uses its own gettext implementaion.  It is part of
libgpg-error but only build and used under Windows - should be easy to
modify it to work on all OSes.  There are some limitations in the code;
for example the mo files must be utf-8 encoded (which is easy to
achieve) and only the additional Germanic plural is supported.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
