Are translation tools available?

I am just going through a translation of resource files and I am
wondering if there is additional support.

At the moment I have both the base strings.xml and the localised
version opened parallel in Eclipse. This quite works, but I am
thinking of the following tools:

- Showing both (or more) versions of a key together
- Showing missing keys in a version
- Integrating a lookup service (Google Translate, Wikipedia)

I didn't find anything like this, is such a tool available?

Not really what you're looking for: never seen such complete tool unluckyly
so we endede with some custom scripts. My practise shows that:

is wrong approach unless you want to end with crappy translation
that would make natives laughing their head off. Therefore we never
do the translation into any language we can't speak or proofread.
GT helps getting the picture, but I'd never use it as the trustworthy

This is quite easy. There's short PHP script which you can use for that:

2. Widget configuration

    I have 2 questions related to configuring widgets. I'd really
appreciate any help/pointers.

1) I use AppWidget Configuration Activity to get the user preferences
and when the user clicks 'Done', I add the widget on to the home
screen. Now when the user clicks on the widget, I want to take the
user back to the configuration screen. Is that possible? Currently, I'
trying to send an intent from the widget class to the the
configuration activity but the configuration screen does not come up.

2) In the configuration step, I take a timezone value from the user
and I want to add a clock widget (I have a custom class for the clock)
that displays the time for this timezone. My clock class is very
similar to android AnalogClock class except that, this has an
additional setTimeZone method. I use this clock class in the layout
file, from which the RemoteView is created. As far as I understand
there is no way to configure the timezone through RemoteViews
(RemoteViews supports only very few methods like setting text, image
If I send an intent to the clock class to configure the timezone,
would it be possible to configure each instance of the widget to a
different timezone? Or is there a way to achieve this, through
RemoteView itself? Any pointers will be of great help.
