I'm working on a multilingual PHP application, using the Smarty / Gettext extension (available on source forge).

The gettext extension works well and allows phrases within smarty templates to be translated.
for example;
<span> {t}Hello World{/t}</span>
becomes (in French)
<span>bonjour monde</span>

The problem is we have a number of custom functions and included templates we need to pass translated parameter text.
for example;
{include file="operations/include/contact_list.tpl" table_tile="{t}Company Contacts{/t}" }

generates this error;
Fatal error: Smarty error: [in operations/company/company_detail.tpl line 72]: syntax error: mismatched tag {/t}. (Smarty_Compiler.class.php, line 2300)

Any ideas on how to fix this?
