If you use XSLT for templating you may have asked yourself how to do I18N since XSL does to not really specify a standard way to do it. If you also want to use I18N for the messages coming from your Perl application back-end but NOT want to have an additional message catalog, things get more complicated.
This talk gives an overview of a solution based on Locale::Maketext::Simple and XML::LibXSLT extension functions which enables the use of shared PO file catalogs for both Perl back-ends and XSLT based front-ends.
