       jgmenu-i18n - support translation of jgmenu flavoured CSV menu data

       jgmenu_run i18n <translation-file>

       jgmenu_run i18n --init [<translation-file>]

       jgmenu_run i18n reads jgmenu flavoured CSV menu data from stdin and ei-
       ther translates it, or creates a	po style translation file

       The <translation-file> argument can be a	file or	directory.  If	it  is
       the  latter,  translation  files	will be	searched for in	this directory
       based on	the environment	variable $LANG,	which will be assumed to be in
       the  format  ll_CC.UTF8 where ll	is an ISO 639 two-letter language code
       and CC is an ISO	3166 two-letter	country	code.  Files named  ll_CC  and
       ll will be used in said order.

       --init Create a template	po style translation file with blank msgid en-

   Create translation file template for	manual translation
       Modules jgmenu-apps(1) and jgmenu-ob(1) have built-in i18n support.  In
       order  to use this features, a translation file is required.  Here fol-
       low examples of how a translation file can be created:

       Example 1.

	      jgmenu_run ob | jgmenu_run i18n --init >sv

       Example 2.

	      jgmenu_run i18n --init <prepend.csv >sv

       The result of the above commands	would be a skeleton  translation  file
       (sv in this case) containing entries like this:

	      msgid "Web Browser"
	      msgstr ""

       Manually	translate the empty msgstr fields.

   Use translation file
       If  using  modules jgmenu-apps(1) or jgmenu-ob(1), just set csv_i18n in
       jgmenurc	to directly point to a translation-file	or  a  directory  con-
       taining translation files.

       In  special  circumstances,  you	 may  wish  to include i18n in command
       plumbing.  Here follow an example of how	this could be constructed:

	      <csv-generating-command> \
		  | jgmenu_run i18n <translation-file> \
		  | jgmenu --vsimple
