Follow-up Comment #1:

> we have a lot of strings defined in static contexts where gettext can't

This case is discussed in
https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/html_node/Special-cases.html .
Define a gettext_noop function (in JavaScript, for example, in the global
context) that returns its argument unmodified.

With this approach:
- You will not have to write down each string twice in the source code.
- You will not have to lie to xgettext about the language to parse.
