Here is my first messages resource bundle for the Fibs Companion. Any comments on the phrasing (in english) are welcome, as well as any translations. If you have never done software localization work before, it is only the stuff on the right of the = that should change The .tooltip version for each one will help you understand what the thing is, as well as looking at the pictures above. A tooltip is the little bit of text that pops up when you hover your mouse over something. If you have any questions, please ask. Oh yes, you will be given full credit for your translation work of course!  And if you want to add a language not listed in the bundle yet, go for it.

The way this will eventually work, I think, is that the OS's locale will be read and the default configuration for both language and country will be adjusted automatically. The configuration dialog will allow you to change either one, and will be a selection by flag icon, even for language (unless anyone has a better idea).

A cool idea for a future plugin would be to make a horizontal row of (internationalized) icons for common phrases that generate the correct kibitz for the person you are playing (if they are using the FibsCompanion or JavaFibs, or any other client that implements the JavaFibs profile protocol thingie. It would start with these: http://fibs.com/languagesdictionary.html but expand over time with input from users, or maybe via some fancy dynamic sharing mechanism.
