We have translated strings in xml files for style.

In Kopete 0.11,  the style are xslt, we put user visible strings in
 <kopete-i18n> tags.  and pass their content to i18n() in the code.
The rules to extract theses:

        $(EXTRACTRC) --context="Translators: The %FOO% placeholders are variables that are substituted in the code, please leave them untranslated" --tag-group=none --tag kopete-i18n styles/*.xsl > xml_doc.cpp
        $(EXTRACTRC) `find . -name \*.ui -o -name \*.rc | egrep -v '(libkopete/compat|protocols/testbed)'` > rc.cpp
        LIST=`find . -name \*.h -o -name \*.cpp -o -name \*.c | egrep -v '(libkopete/compat|protocols/testbed)'`; \
        if test -n "$$LIST"; then \
                $(XGETTEXT) $$LIST -o $(podir)/kopete.pot; \
        -rm xml_doc.cpp

Another idea is to use 
<foo xml:lang="en">Hello</foo>
<foo xml:lang="fr">Salut</foo>
<foo xml:lang="nl">Dag</foo>
But it's a bit unpractical
