Well, what I was thinking was of having the Scheme programmer write

  (_ "foo")

instead of


Here, _ would be a wrapper to gettext(3), which receives "foo" and
returns the translated string.  So it would be activated by the
programmer on a string-by-string basis.


the GNU internationalization utilities support guile with exactly the proposed syntax -- so it shouldn't really be a problem to get them working with CHICKEN. Probably one would just need a wrapper for all the C procedures from the internationalization library.
