Following bash's syntax for gettext:

menuentry $"This menu entry will be translated!" {

  echo $"The value of \$example_variable is: $example_variable !"


  echo $"$my_favorite_color_translated is my favorite color!"

For a complete example, including setup of po, pot, and mo files, a
menu entry allowing selection of another language, and setting up
gfxterm with unifont to support displaying (almost) all unicode
strings/characters, see Super GRUB2 Disk (the "baells" branch of the
git repository):
