What is Localizer?
Localizer is an online service that allows an extension developer or any other person to translate extension texts using Google Translate and edit it in a friendly environment, and then share the result with everyone else.
What is messages.json file?
Each internationalized extension has at least one file named messages.json that contains localized strings for the extension. Each locale having its own messages.json file that contains all the strings in that locale's encoding.
Where are the language files stored?
The default location is:
<chrome profile directory> /Extensions/ <extension id> / <version> /_locales/ <localeCode>
Chrome stores your data and settings, such browsing history, bookmarks, themes, extensions etc., in a special profile directory.
The default location of the Chrome profile directory is operating system-dependent:
- Windows XP
- Google Chrome: <drive>:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
- Chromium: <drive>:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default
- Google Chrome: <drive>:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
- Chromium: <drive>:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default
- Mac OS X
- Google Chrome: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default
- Chromium: ~/Library/Application Support/Chromium/Default
- Google Chrome: /home/<username>/.config/google-chrome/Default
- Chromium: /home/<username>/.config/chromium/Default
How can I add my extension to your list of templates?
To set up a template, usually we need at least one file: messages.json
Just send it to us and if it's correct we'll add it to the Localizer templates database.
