Nice work from FadingRed. I never liked much Apple’s approach to localization where nib files needs to be manually edited by each translator. Even within Apple, it leads to strange things. Greenwich takes another approach: it loads the nib file and then translate user-visible strings in the created objects using a standard string table.

I have something like this under the sheaves too, I just did not spend the time to make it ready to publish. Looks like Greenwich does not work on Leopard, neither does it attempt to adjust the layout. Mine is better in those regards. On the other hand mine doesn’t have a system to allow the user to edit/create localizations by himself from within the application.

Chime in if you’re interested… I might be tempted to release it.
