Unlike KDE, Xfce adopts an integrated source tree,
i.e. PO files are located in the each po directories,
which are created by glib-gettextize, of course
Autotools are used as well. Therefore if you're expecting
a `install' as 'make install', you need to install
xfce4-dev-tools (Autotools) at first. See
for compilation order.
An alternative way is that manual install with the
$ msgfmt -c -o $gettext_domain.mo vi.po
# cp $gettext_domain.mo /usr/share/local/vi/LC_MESSAGES
`#' means you're root user. You have to grab PO files
before by using a script at

As far as I know, there's no way to switch a language
on-the-fly. Check your `locale', if that shows your
locale value (e.g. LANG/LC_ALL=vi.UTF-8 or the like),
then you're just seeing a English message due to lack
of installed .mo files.
