Thanks for the reply and suggestions.

I tried i18n:translate="", it works fine.

But if I change domain (e.g i18n:domain="mydomain") it doesn't work. Is 
domain attribute is related to the domain specified in .po file, coz the 
example .po file which comes with PlacelessTranslationService has domain 
as 'PlacelessTranslationService' and if I used same it works fine.

Actually I used i18n:target after reading - 
http://wiki.zope.org/zope3/ZPTInternationalizationExamples. I do 
understand that these are zope3 examples, but just thought of giving 
try. While searching further I found - 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/zope2/+bug/142771 which gives hint that 
i18n:target not supported at least for Zope 2.9.7-final, python 2.4.4, win32

I will try to check for incoming browser headers, but does zope provides 
any inbuilt method to do so ?

Thank you,
