[bug-gettext] Appropriate place for usage questions?

This is a bug list, I’m after some guidance on usage of gettext, is there a more appropriate place?


My question regards how to deal with some text that needs translating. I need to generate output from a program that consists, in English, of, for example:


Message sent:

   To : address@hidden

   To : address@hidden

   Cc : address@hidden

   Subject: New cypher algorithm


What’s the best approach for internationalising this? Do I have one message “Message sent:”, then one message “To:”, one “CC:” one “Subject:”? Since there can be multiple TO:, CC: lines etc, I don’t see what alternative there is, but would this be able to produce sensible output in, say, Japanese?


I have similar examples such as:

Processing took:

   Cpu time: 1.2

   Real time: 3.4

   Memory : 2M

   Page swaps : 10


Etc. Is each line of that a separate message?
