Hi Stephan,

Well, in my opinion, gettext has some advantages over simple csv dictionary 
translations, there are tools to translate also, like Poedit, while the 
issue is not about if there are or not better tools.

What makes gettext more powerful is that it supports different plural forms 
(for example), since there are languages that don't have only a singular and 
a plural form, and I guess it has more.

If you find time, you could look at it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gettext.
