This interface provides a method for translating a message or message id, including text with interpolation. The message catalog basically serves as a fairly simple mapping object.

This is a read-only attribute. domain -- The translation domain for these messages. This is a read-only attribute. See ITranslationService.

When we refer to text here, we mean text that follows the standard Zope 3 text representation. The domain is used to specify which translation to use. Different products will often use a specific domain naming translations supplied with the product. A favorite example is: How do you translate 'Sun'? Is it our star, the abbreviation of Sunday or the company? Specifying the domain, such as 'Stars' or 'DaysOfWeek' will solve this problem for us. Standard arguments in the methods described below: msgid -- The id of the message that should be translated. This may be an implicit or an explicit message id. mapping -- The object to get the interpolation data from. target_language -- The language to translate to. context -- An object that provides contextual information for determining client language preferences. It must implement or have an adapter that implements IUserPreferredLanguages. It will be to determine the language to translate to if target_language is not specified explicitly. Also note that language tags are defined by RFC 1766.
