7.9 Invoking the msgen Program

 
msgen [option] inputfile

The msgen program creates an English translation catalog. The input file is the last created English PO file, or a PO Template file (generally created by xgettext). Untranslated entries are assigned a translation that is identical to the msgid, and are marked fuzzy.

Note: `msginit --no-translator --locale=en' performs a very similar task. The main difference is that msginit cares specially about the header entry, whereas msgen doesn't.
