JLokalize is a free, open source, editor for supporting the internationalization (i18n) of Java applications. Java programms usually store translatable text in properties files. JLokalize is an editor which makes organizing these files simple. This program is inspired by Attesoro. Features include:

  • Small and portable
  • Easy-to-use and specialized for its purpose
  • Supports the translation process of Java applications (e.g. by gathering usage statistics)
  • 100% compatible with standard ResourceBundle based implementations

JLokalize is published under the free GNU GPLv3 license.

The third and most probably last release, JLokalize version 1.1, has been released on November 11th, 2011. It is now a mature, stable, full-featured and quite polished application. Reversal of changes as well as spell checking have been implemented. Many bugs have been removed. Further development doesn't seem neccessary.

The second release, JLokalize version 1.0 edition rosetta, has been published on June 1st, 2011. It is fully functional, however with some unnecessary limitations which will be smoothed out in future versions.

The first release, JLokalize version 0.9 edition Attesoro, has been out since April 20, 2010. It is regarded to be a first working beta release.
