Yes, the PO file format is totally independent of Zope and Python. > - Are ZPT's marked up in the same way as they were in Zope 2?

Zope 3 does not have a translation service. It is also not of the translation utility's concern to know about the negotiated language. There are other interfaces for this; I believe ILanguageNegotiator. > - How do I ask the translation service what all the available languages > are for a particular domain? I do not think there is an API for that, but you could certainly develop one. > - How do a write/register a negotiator that choose a language based on > an attribute of the user object and then falls back to normal browser > negotiation if that attribute isn't present? Just implement the right interface and register it. This is not too hard and I think there are code examples out there. > - How do I generate .pot files from ZPTs, Python Scipts and External > Methods?

In Zope 3 you can simply call utilities/i18nextract.py; it will extract all message strings from Python, ZPT and ZCML files.
