digitalmars.D.announce - mofile - gettext library for D

It was a real concern for me that there's no gettext-compatible 
package for D (at least I could not find one in dub registry), 
because it's kind of standard. So I made it myself.

mofile is similar to GNU gettext, but gettext and ngettext 
functions are implemented as member functions of MoFile struct.

This package features only .mo file parsing and getting 
translated messages (with support for plural forms). No 
bindtextdomain present (so no globals)

To produce .mo files you still use standard utilities like 
xgettext, msginit, msgmerge and msgfmt.

Great! Support for i18n is an important step towards world domination (in more than one ways).
