Example 456. Translate the output of a web page

// Set the LANGUAGE using the value from the client's Accept-Language HTTP request header

// Bind a domain to directory
// gettext uses domains to know what directories to 
// search for translations to messages passed to gettext
bindtextdomain ('shopping_cart', './cart_translations');

// Set the current domain that gettext will use
textdomain ('shopping_cart');

if (TRUE == $checkout_succeeded) {
        // Filter the message through gettext
        print gettext ("Thank you for shopping with FooMall - fine purveyors of programming cliches!");
