As the name says, it's an eclipse plugin for "Android Development Tools (ADT)" to support the localization for string resources in android. This can be plugged/installed on existing ADT. This plugin supports the translation the elements of strings.xml to more than 60 languages.
How it works:
This plugin reads the "strings.xml" from "res/values" folder and parses each element in the XML file. Each element is then converted to the languages selected by user using Google Translate. The translated files are kept under respective folders for ex. For "FRENCH" languages, the file is kept under "res/values-fr" folder.
