Seeing gettext mentioned here: What always bothered me about (what
little, really, I know about) gettext, is that AFAIU it is based on the
assumption that a single string S in input language A can always be
mapped to the same string in output language B, even if S appears in
multiple places in the source, with potentially different semantics
(that just happen to all be representable by the same phrase S in
language A, but not necessarily so in language B).
