translate$() -- translate a string
Translation$ = TRANSLATE$(Source$)
The counterpart to the localize command is translate$(). It translates the string Source$ according to known dictionaries (see localize for more information about dictionaries) into the language currently set as default.
Note: However, supporting the localization of your program is a good idea for BeOS users too because localization support might be added soon to BeOS yab.
Using only the system dictionaries, we can obtain the translation of "File" according to the language set in the preferences.
