HEBCI is a technique that allows a Web form handler to transparently detect the character set with which its data was encoded. By using carefully-chosen character references, the browser's encoding can be inferred. Thus, it is possible to guarantee that data is in a standard encoding without relying on (often unreliable) Web server/browser encoding interactions.
tinyglot.pl is a useful script for maintaining localization of .strings files in Cocoa applications. It compares two files (the new unlocalized one and the old localized one) and merges their strings into a new file. New strings that have no translation are put at the end of the file so that it's easy to complete them. This script reads and generates both plain .strings files (UTF-16 encoding) and XML plist files (UTF-8) encoding.
JInto is a plugin for Eclipse that lets the developer easily edit and maintain resource bundles (files that hold the localized strings for an application). It features parallel editing of all language versions (side by side), warnings when no text has been provided for a specific key, or when the text for one key is identical for different languages, and a search wizard to locate unused strings (strings that are referenced, but not actually defined in the resource bundle). It has been tested under Windows and Linux.
The zen Platform is a Java development environment for J2SE/J2EE. It eases and accelerates the Java application development by visual methods (RAD). Complete applications can be modelled in an intuitive fashion without the need for technical expertise. The complexity of Java and J2EE programming is tremendously hidden - reducing the learning curve for Java novices. Java experts are by no means restricted - they may apply their knowledge without limitations. Application flexibility is a core feature of the platform, which is delivered as an Eclipse plugin.
PHP Net_IDNA is a class to convert between the Punycode and Unicode formats. Punycode is a standard described in RFC 3492 and part of IDNA (Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications [RFC3490]) . This class allows PHP scripts to convert these domain names without having one of the PHP extensions installed. It supports both IDNA 2003 and IDNA 2008.
