using gettext format could bring the following pros:

  1. Extract the language definitions from source code with lots of tools or the sample code from other PHP applications
  2. Translators could translate modules without touch the source code with editors like poedit( http://www.poedit.net/ ) and more
  3. Translators could collaborate in many platforms, like Launchpad( https://dev.launchpad.net/Getting ), Pootle( http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/pootle/ ) or even Drupal ( http://localize.drupal.org/ ). The friends in Taiwan also made a similar tool for localization in Chinese.
  4. Modules could share the language definitions and translators don't have to translate the same sentences again and again.
