On Wed, 20 Feb 2008 Till Tan­tau sub­mit­ted the new trans­la­tor pack­age to CTAN. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/la­tex/con­trib/trans­la­tor Li­cense: lppl An­nounce­ment for the pack­age:
> The trans­la­tor pack­age is in­tended to pro­vide an open plat­form for > pack­age's that need to be lo­cal­ized. Un­like the ba­bel pack­age (which > can and typ­i­cally will be used to­gether with trans­la­tor), the set of > words that can be trans­lated is not fixed and new words and > trans­la­tions can be added in a sim­ple man­ner. New trans­la­tions can be > added in a de­cen­tral­ized man­ner. > > The pack­age is writ­ten in com­pletely LaTeX and it is quite > lightweight. It could very eas­ily be ported to plain-TeX or ConTeXt, > pro­vided there is a "pub­lic de­mand" for this. > > A typ­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tion of this pack­age is the beamer class, which > al­ready uses it, if it present. Then words like "The­o­rem" will be > trans­lated to "Satz" if the doc­u­ment lan­guage is Ger­man, for in­stance.

trans­la­tor – Easy trans­la­tion of strings in

This pack­age pro­vides a flex­i­ble mech­a­nism for trans­lat­ing in­di­vid­ual words into dif­fer­ent lan­guages. For ex­am­ple, it can be used to trans­late a word like “fig­ure” into, say, the Ger­man word “Ab­bil­dung”. Such a trans­la­tion mech­a­nism is use­ful when the au­thor of some pack­age would like to lo­cal­ize the pack­age such that texts are cor­rectly trans­lated into the lan­guage pre­ferred by the user.

This pack­age is not in­tended to be used to au­to­mat­i­cally trans­late more than a few words.
