Hi everyone,

as a member of the CDO component, we are trying to fulfill our
localization needs for the Galileo release. I'll try to expose here what
I've understood.

(Please correct me if wrong) The steps to properly prepare our project
for babel are:

1. Externalize all Strings that are subject to be shown in the UI from
our plugins (in our case, I expect only UI and Exceptions are subject to
be shown). Use JDT and PDE tooling to externalize strings.

2. Create a babel map. If I understand it correctly, this is kind of a
file that exposes which externalized Strings can be translated by the
Babel community. I saw this is done through a webapp. The first thing I
see is our project does not appear, which I understand since we are not
top level project under modeling, but rather under modeling.emf. How can
we add our component to this list? Is there anything we should do?

4. Perform PTT to see everything is fine?

How is exactly the Pseudo Translation Test performed? I believe I should
download the PTT plugin and then configure eclipse.ini to use it? Which
is the flag I should use? If I understood correctly:

a. Hard-coded strings don't have prefix
b. Externalized Strings have prefix. If the string has the prefix, what
does it exactly mean?

Question: where is the index file that maps prefix to file containing
the string?

Thanks in advance :D
