That's not everything:
1. You need to call textdomain() to set the translation domain,
usually your app's name, e.g. textdomain("your_app")
2. During build, you need to compile the .po files to .mo files using
msgfmt (there are Autotools scripts to help) and then put them in the
correct directory, e.g.
/usr/local/share/locale/ar/LC_MESSAGES/ (make install
should do this for you)
3. The text domain name you've set on program start must match the
name of the .mo file
