See  for the link.
Note that all you need to do is put comments on the line(s) just before
the line where the keyword (_ or gettext) is used and use xgettext
Note that the following sample will include all comments (so any
whitespace between comments is ignored):
// This is also included as a comment.
// Comment 1
printf(_("This is a test\n"));
