LanguageSys is meant to internationalize your applications. It handles the access to language files, which are based on an INI style. It is possible to precompile the language files to increase the speed of processing. This system is focused on being highly object-oriented, so it makes the language aliases aviable as member variables of the own class. It contains a system to fetch a list of all the available languages by a given directory where the language files are located. A distinction of languages is drawn as RFC1766 recommends. Examples, documentation, and a simple script to precompile your language files are included.
JInto is a plugin for Eclipse that lets the developer easily edit and maintain resource bundles (files that hold the localized strings for an application). It features parallel editing of all language versions (side by side), warnings when no text has been provided for a specific key, or when the text for one key is identical for different languages, and a search wizard to locate unused strings (strings that are referenced, but not actually defined in the resource bundle). It has been tested under Windows and Linux.
The zen Platform is a Java development environment for J2SE/J2EE. It eases and accelerates the Java application development by visual methods (RAD). Complete applications can be modelled in an intuitive fashion without the need for technical expertise. The complexity of Java and J2EE programming is tremendously hidden - reducing the learning curve for Java novices. Java experts are by no means restricted - they may apply their knowledge without limitations. Application flexibility is a core feature of the platform, which is delivered as an Eclipse plugin.
i18nHTML is a collection of scripts that can be used to write Web pages that visitors can translate into their respective native languages. It uses a database to match sentences from the Web page against translations and defines a set of PHP functions that generate either the translated HTML sentences or the original (typically English) text with decorations that allow users to provide translations. It requires that internationalized pages be written using the functions but does not constrain the page design in any way. Internationalized pages can be updated without losing existing translations for sentences that were not changed.
cpdetector is a small yet clever framework for codepage detection that integrates different strategies. It may be used as a library for third party software that accesses textual data over network. It also includes a best-practice implementation in form of a command line tool that allows sorting and transforming large collections of documents based on their codepage. Available strategies include: jchardet (exclusion, frequency analysis, and guessing), detection of the HTML charset property, and detection of the XML encoding declaration.
Prologia-I18N allows easy internationalization in extracting hard-coded strings from Java sources. A GUI allows you to decide which string should be internationalized. A front-end to the Attesoro software is provided to allow easy editing of resource bundles. Finally, your Java sources are automatically modified in order to use localized strings located in resourceBundles rather than hard-coded strings.
