And here I thought it was about documentation. Now suddenly it is about
translating programs. Writing Documentation and even translating
Documentation is something different then translating a program.

A running program should be enough to translate your .po file. However it
could then indeed be that some sourcecode editing is needed.

This was not what I thought we were talking about. I understood that we
were talking about documentation of a program. Now that it looks we are
talking about translation of a program, so it can be used in multiple
languages natively, everything that has been said means nothing, as we
were talking about different things.
