9.3 Magic for End Users

We consider here those packages using GNU gettext internally, and for which the installers did not disable translation at configure time. Then, users only have to set the LANG environment variable to the appropriate `ll_CC' combination prior to using the programs in the package. See section 9.1 The Current `ABOUT-NLS' Matrix. For example, let's presume a German site. At the shell prompt, users merely have to execute `setenv LANG de_DE' (in csh) or `export LANG; LANG=de_DE' (in sh). They could even do this from their `.login' or `.profile' file.
