Question Yast Text Translation For Internationalization

As part of a company project we have created a customized version of YaST. Now that we have most of our functionality in place, we need to provide for internationalization and/or localization of the product.

I'm looking for information on the internationalization/localization of YaST text strings. I know about the convention of specifying text strings with the format "_(string)" as the first step. And I know that the .pot files in each YaST package are involved in text translation. But that's about it.

Any help, documents, or good links to info would be greatly appreciated.
