popuretext — Extracts all the source text from a directory of POT files, removes po headers and optionally the accelerator keys.
popuretext pot-dir file.txt [accelerator]

If you want to use other tools to analyse the text within a translation project to for instance use word frequency to create an initial glossary then this tool is the starting point to get hold of the pure text.
