I have need to translate the contents of a QString variable for display. Currently QApplication::tr() and qApp::tr() require char literal strings.

Is there a way to use tr() to translate the contents of a QString by converting it to Local8bit or Latin1 or something? So far all efforts do not translate.

Have you tested to see if you are actually invoking the translation system by using tr() on a string literal for which you have created a translation?
