The answer to your question(s) is in the gettext documentation.

I run a public access lynx which presently is set up to only do
Japanese.  It now will be possible to offer English or Japanese,
one of the reasons, btw, that I have expressed a desire to use
gettext over the include file method.  IMHO, it is best done with
the wrapper to Lynx, not within Lynx.  I see no benefit to offering
a runtime option to changing the language of the messages.  It's pure
luxury eating away at more memory.
