I will not be able to supply a link to you now , but from searches in
Github ( many ten thousand repositories ) and / or Internet , my
understanding is that there are such software that can be used instead of
gettext .

If you search the following phrase in Google :

permissive licensed software instead of gettext

you will see that there will be many links about this issue .
