PrEd is a Java-based graphical utility to find and edit Java property files in JAR, WAR, and other kinds of ZIP archives. It is an appropriate tool for customizing Java applications which use XML and Property files for their configuration. It provides an interface to edit the property values of property files and to edit the values of XML text nodes and attributes. No knowledge of XML is needed to edit XML files. The program can update JAR and WAR files without having to extract them.
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.
SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
The TMX Localization Editor allows for the viewing, editing, and saving of localization data in the TMX open standard. Based on locale4j and written in Java/Swing, it is a quick and useful tool for localizing applications. Currently, the editor implements the TMX 2.0 draft specification.
TongueTied is a Web based application that helps with the creation of keywords with support for multi-language or multi-region resources. One of the key features of TongueTied is that it allows static resources to be exported from the application and can import translations from resources into the application. The following formats are currently supported for both export and import: Java Properties, .NET Resources (.resx), CSV, and Excel. TongueTied integrates an optional work flow around a keyword to track changes to a translation and ensure the validity of that translation. Operators are allowed to query a translation if they believe it to be incorrect.
