Ernst Van der Linden pointed me out to a great eclipse plugin to use when using ColdBox's Internationalization features. This plugin is the Eclipse Resource Bundles Plugin

This is an incredible plugin that will help you work with multi-language resource bundles right from within eclipse. I Include the Attessor tool with ColdBox to facilitiate the usage of resource bundles, but this tool takes the cake.

  • It shows the property keys as a list or as a tree
  • It shows all the available locales at the same time
  • You can easily see multi-language translations at one time
  • Change languages with ease
  • New Language wizard that will blow your mind
  • If founds missed keys in any locale and displays a warning icon.
  • It saves the keys grouped, in alphabetical order and with the equal signs aligned.
  • It escapes Unicode characters that are not inside the ASCII subset. Example: Cu00F3digo postal for Código postal.
  • It founds duplicate property values.
  • Much More...

if this is the same plug-in i'm thinking about: - it also trashes every other s/w RB so be very careful if you have to use RB from multiple sources (ask the farcry folks if you don't believe me) - it can write stuff out as UTF-8 (default behavior?), this can be incredibly BAD except for flex i guess ;-) btw "escaping" chars & the rest of the stuff you mention is supposed to be standard behavior for RB editors.

Unfortunately, we often hear this message from clients who thought it would never happen to them... until it did.
