It's sometimes even impossible to tell. For instance, a string might
appear in a library like GNU libc, which is not even a command line
program: it's a library.
Yet, this string might be used in both CLI programs and GUI programs.
There is no way anyone can easily determine if one particular string
from any particular CLI library/program is never used in any GUI
Of course, a heuristic David suggests is usually more than good enough,
but once you find a string that is just reused in GUI app (i.e. I can
imagine Synaptic showing a lot of apt messages), you'd have to go and
translate it anyway if you want full UI translated.
