Note that settrans does almost nothing. It simply writes a STRING to an
INODE. Syntax is "settrans INODE STRING". There are some options that
specify what to do if a translator already exists (passive or active), but
this is "advanced" usage.

For translators in general, see

For individual translators, check their documentation.
