gettext in windows

Hello,

I have some programs which are developed on Linux and uses gettext for
the language support.
While they run without problem on a win32 platform i haven't a clue how
to get the gettext stuff working.
Also locale settings are different.

Can somebody give me some pointers on how this sort of thing is
implemented in windows?
I must also confess that i have problems installing GNU/gettext on windows
I'm quite clueless on windows :-)

Thanks,

Stas

You need gettext + iconv, get it from GNU site. Unpack zip archive to
any directory according to your taste (c:\gnu seems to be reasonable
proposition), then add (install-dir)\bin directory to PATH.
