DESCRIPTION
===========

The po4a (PO for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and 
more interestingly, the maintenance of translations) using gettext tools 
on areas where they were not expected like documentation.

po4a extracts the translatable material from the original document, and 
places it into a PO file that is well adapted to the translation work.

Once the translation is completed in the PO file, po4a re-injects the 
translation into the structure of the document to generate a translated 
document.

If the translation is only partially completed, the original (English) 
text is used instead. This ensures that your translated documentation is 
always both up to date with regard to the original one, and as 
translated as possible.

Automate all the translation maintenance with one configuration file 
that specifies all settings, and a list of documents to translate. po4a 
will update them automatically when something happens.

PORTING NOTES
==============

Failing tests: cfg-multi, cfg-single, cfg-split, fmt-sgml.
