I am working on externalizing strings used in an RCP application. I wanted to know if it was possible to externalize string values used inside an introContent XML file. For instance, is something the following code possible where overview.label and tutorial.label are externalized strings?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<introContent>
	<!-- STANDBY PAGE  -->
	<page style="css/standby.css" id="standby">
		<group id="page-links-standby">
			<anchor id="beginAnchor" />
			<link label="%overview.label"
				url="http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/showPage?id=overview&amp;standby=false"
				id="overview">
				<text>Provides information for the quick start.</text>
			</link>
			<link label="%tutorial.label"
				url="http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/showPage?id=tutorials&amp;standby=false"
				id="tutorials">
				<text> Offers several step-by-step tutorials for quick access.
				</text>
			</link>
			<anchor id="endAnchor" />
		</group>
	</page>
</introContent>

I don't think you can. You have to create a fragment for each language that you want to support and do some search and replace magic yourself in your build process.
