- It began from the idea of making manual translation of PO files
(Portable Object files)
faster. These files are essential objects in making local language
computation a reality. The Anubadok package comes with an explicit
program anubadok_po for the purpose.
While the original motivation was translating PO files but later it's aim was broadend.
For example, this translator could become an useful tool in translating contents of
derivative language, Bengali has certain structural advantages for
machine synthesis of sentences. So, in feature complete state this
translator can handle preliminary translations reasonably well.

and it uses

plain text files, XML documents, HTML files with inline
directly translating Portable Object (PO) files.
Anubadok system writes out translated documents as Unicode encoded
