If one of these directories exists (first found wins), it is searched for a subdirectories with name of current locale. For example: if '/usr/share/webkit/pillow/strings/locales' has been found, it is searched for subdirectories 'en-us', 'en' (given that current locale is en_US). Again, first found subdirectory is selected for further processing. Then selected directory is searched for requested resource, i.e. file 'str_table.js'. [...] This is could works for WAF apps also, as this mechanism is provided by underlying WebKit library.
BTW, long time ago I've found why it's so (and forgot to post here). Amazon just followed W3C Widget's packaging specification.

Also .acx files (located initially at /opt/amazon/acw and copied to /mnt/us/system/acw) are just simple zip archives and also W3C Widgets in fact. These files contains part of functionality accessible from stock reader (X-Ray, Bing translator and some more) and implemented in HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

(sorry for necroposting )

Unfortunately, this effort seems to have come to an end, at least for the time being. All initially active developers have switched their attention to other projects. However, this does not mean that internationalization/localization for newer firmware versions is impossible. In fact, all the required tools exist and are ready to use. The only thing that is needed is someone who is willing to spend some effort on this. All it takes is a little bit of initiative, but it seems like nobody is willing to do that.

Hi, ixtab

I always use your language packs on my KT of 5.0.4. Recently I update it to 5.1.2 and find some item not be translated into Chinese. I would like to translate these items of 5.1.2 into Chinese for free. Could you send me the item list of 5.1.2 to me, or tell me how to start this work?

If you go ahead and show some initiative, I will happily help you -- or at least, try to help you -- with the problems that you may encounter while adapting the code to current firmwares.
