Pango is not for translation. Pango is to "layout" text given to it, and
it happens to support a wide (vast!) variety of languages, alphabets
etc. Generally, if you use GTK, Pango is "under the hood", doing things
like generating on-screen rendering of the text in buttons and just
about every other widget.

For translation, you want gettext, which is very widely used by the open
source software community.
