Yes. See 
messages target. It extracts messages from several types of XML files 
(partly with perl - I did not write that part, but copied from 
somewhere else .;-). The idea is to get the translatable strings from 
the XML (they should be marked somehow or always be the same attribute 
or inside the same tags) and create fake .cpp code from the strings.
