MAKETEXT Variable

All English text in templates is enclosed in %MAKETEXT{"string" args="..."}% variables, which enables translators to translate the user interface into different languages.

And surely it slows the system down too.... -- TW

To speed up things WordPress uses compressed .po files: these are .mo files. Compression can be done using the maketext command.

Now we need TWiki to read .mo files. This seems easy. Maketext Gettext has the function read_mo.

/lib/CPAN/lib/Locale/Maketext/Lexicon/Gettext.pm has routine parse that automatically checks if a file is compressed to .mo.

Everything seems to be in place.

%MAKETEXT% does not work in plugins. How do I put translatable texts in plugin code?
