Solution Description

Every now and then a developer has to work on a code base that is in a language that is unknown to him. In this case, he would need to copy variable, class, method names to Google Translate to see what they actually mean.

The Source Code Translation in Eclipse tries to help such developers, by providing a popup with the translated words, when hovering the mouse over them. The plugin is able to handle compound words or phrases that use camelCase or underscore "_" as separation methods.

For the plugin to work, a properties file containing the word to be translated, and the translation needs to be created and added from the Preferences section of the plugin.
