Gettext does not parse non English strings

Hi all,

I’ve got an application where the default language are Greek (strings in source files) and using gettext trying to translate them in English.
If I set the default language to be the English then all texts are translated fine to Greek but when I set as default the Greek then nothing is translated over to English.

It seems that Gettext can only recognize English inside the source files (php) and not any other language.

Any ideas?
