Indeed. There are some notes on the OLPC wiki at


It seems to be just a question of adding at the top of add_newdocs.py

from gettext import gettext as _

... and putting the docstrings in a _() function call, although perhaps 
I miss something important, like a performance hit? This would catch 
everything in add_newdocs at least. It seems like a relatively minor 
change if you are overhauling anyway?
