This is the conventional equivalent to GNU gettext used by most Python
programs.  Find the definition of '_' which will either look like

def _(x):
    # code here

or like

_ = gettext

(or some other name that looks like it might be a function that
translates an English string into some other language).  Then replace
it with

def _(x):
    return x

and win (unless you really want to see the messages in a language
other than the original, which is almost certainly English<wink>).
