Little touch of localization

No doubt many translators deal with software user interface on daily basis or just for fun. Here I'm going to show you the nib filter plugin, specifically for those who love to do some weekend localization of Cocoa applications.

Once you install this plugin to AppleTrans, you can directly open a nib file and get the strings out of it. Well that's about it. This plugin does not just make it simple, it demonstrates some potential of AppleTrans. Let's take a look at it.

I'd remind you that this is not something for professional localizers, who are encouraged to set up a localization environment with AppleGlot or alternative tools from 3rd parties.
