when using a browser whereas not in command line (when executing 
To make sure try the following command:
php -i | grep gettext
or look for gettext in:
php -i | less

Anyway if your "web" PHP is gettext-enabled and if gettext binaries are 
installed on your computer, you should be able to use gettext 
translation with your cartoweb.

Have you tried running the demoCW3 project? It provides FR and EN 
example translations. Installing this project is quite easy: after 
installing CW3, simply type "php cw3setup.php --fetch-demo".
