Issue from the gallery2 install manual.

 Gettext extension

    * In order to make the localization of g2 (multi-language) work you need the gettext extension of php. This can be enabled
in php.ini. G2 does hint you for that. However gettext is a little strange extension.

    * Find


replace it with


But now comes the crux. php_gettext.dll is depending on \php-install-dir\dll\iconv.dll All other extensions work flawlessly for
me. But gettext.dll required me to put iconv.dll into a dir that is included in the searchpath. E.g. /windows/system32 I then
overreacted and copied all dll's to that /system32 dir. The manual of php 4 tells you to copy the dll's to the /php-install-dir/
but that only works if you add manually the php dir into the path statement of windows.

In other way I would suggest to put the extension dir into the system path.
