I’ve finally finished and posted my article and corresponding sample code covering how to localize a Firefox extension:


In addition, I’ve gone back through the previous samples and fixed a glitch that caused a garbage character to appear in the tooltip on Linux and other systems that use both CR and LF for end-of-line characters. The old version of the code was stripping just the last character. The new version finds the last CR and the last LF and yanks them out.

  1. Hmm… It’s not about Localization, it’s about Internationalization.
    Internationalization is a process of making software localizable. Localization is a process of prepating the product for given langauge.

  2. That’s a good point.

  3. Eric: Want me to move it to Internationalizing an extension name?

  4. Perhaps “Making an extension localizable”? Internationalizing an extension sounds scary…

  5. Well… I could also just do a tad of work on the article and it would become “Internationalizing and localizing extensions”.
