Localization folks are most well versed in these things.
Anyway I shall contribute my mite.
Usually applications are layered on top of libraries that expose an API. This makes stuff well layered, well organized and clean.
And nearly 75% of the logic and code rests with the library. This library may be statically or dynamically linked(two types of dyn linking), and can be shared blah blah blah
So QT library implements the bulk of the infrastructure that KDE uses.
GTK library does the same thing for GNOME.
