Bert Freudenberg commented on SQ-100:

Almost fixed now, using a modified JavaScript launcher. Sources and translations are at
We now have Spanish and German translations at
Possible improvements:
* make non-latin languages work. This means switching to UTF-8 content type, but not sure how to do that for a single page.
* use server-side language detection. Currently it uses the navigator.language property which reports the user's system language, not the browser's preferred languages.

> When showing an Etoys project in the browser under Sugar, the page displayed is in English. It should be translated.
> There should be a po file with the strings. Then we could convert to json which could be embedded in the launcher page script. This one seems to be BSD licensed: http://code.google.com/p/asynapse/source/browse/trunk/perl/Asynapse/bin/po2json.pl
> Not sure if we can access the Browser's language tag from javascript, possibly we have to generate the language tage on server-side and insert as variable to the script.
