Ah, fine. I'll do that first.

Do I understand correctly that your implementation goal is to handle the
creation of .mo files programmatically?

This sounds interesting, but I'm under pressure of my deadline and the

way of using german language as basis.

Anything that can help me in reaching this goal is very much appreciated
and will give me more time for other tasks. ;)
