What's the current status of the i18n process?
I'm still seeing a english-only version when I launch 3.5.1. If you
switch to a resource file I could translate to German.

Everything should be using resource bundles already - this issue is more
of a placeholder noting that it's a requirement for new versions
(there's an automated tool to check this as long as raw strings in
source files are followed on the same line with //NOI18N).

Have a look at and maybe mention
it on nbannounce - there are already french, russian, japanese and
chinese localizations - it would be wonderful to have a german
localization as well!

Useless issue.
