Akelos is an MVC framework for PHP that tries to bring the magic of Ruby on Rails to the PHP world. Akelos based applications can run on most shared hosting service providers since Akelos only requires a standard PHP installation on the server. Akelos is designed to make developers lives simpler by solving complex problems with unusual speed and productivity. Favoring "convention over configuration" leads to the creation of uniform and simpler-to-understand code.
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.
The CSets collection is a set of mapping tables between various character sets and Unicode, and is intended to provide mappings not included in most character set conversion tools available today. The origin of this distribution was several projects that involved text encoded in many obscure character encodings. Many of these encodings are not supported in the most frequently used character set conversion tools (i.e. iconv), so this package was put together to provide the encoding information in a simple, consistent format.
RusXMMS provides character set conversion for languages which can be represented with more than one character set. It originally handled XMMS playlists, but can be useful for any program that works with small pieces of text in different languages and encodings. The library features language and encoding autodetection for most European languages, extensibility regarding new languages and encodings, recoding/translation of multi-language playlists, on-the-fly translation between languages using online services, and a GTK/GTK2 UI library.
Eigenbase Resource Generator (ResGen) generates wrapper classes for Java resource bundles. The generated classes contain a 'get' method for every resource string, with parameters appropriate to the parameters embedded in the resource string. If the resource is some kind of exception, it also generates a 'new' method to create an instance of that exception. C++ generation is also supported.
Openbakery Translation is an internationalization tool for Java. Unlike standard i18n in Java, openbakery translation uses the text in the default locale as the key. There is also a tool which checks all of the source code for translations. This tool then provides a list of key/value pairs which have to be added to a certain resource file, and another list of pairs which can be removed. The translation works by simply calling a static method called "translate". The code works out of the box, without writing any properties files. You only write properties files when you really translate the program to a second language.
