B.A.R.T. Helps You Translate Android ROMs the Easy Way
Android is a worldwide phenomenon. As such, many of the developers who work on custom ROM’s are not native English speakers. Just because the official language of XDA is English, that does not mean we can’t show the world community some love.
XDA Member BurgerZ has done just that with his latest creation: B.A.R.T. Short for BurgerZ Android ROM Translator, the basic premise of the program is to translate any compatible Android ROM automatically and hassle-free. So far it features:
1. Translation of any Android based ROM (you need translation files!). Translation source can be like github repository or local folder
2. Deodex ROMs
3. Translation of single APK (JAR)
4. Feedback (you can send any info – bug reports, opinions and other info to the developer)
5. Check for program update
This is an amazing program for those in our community who do not want to waste precious development time having to manually translate every single file in a ROM. If you’re a developer looking to contribute to the translation repository, or are just interested in having an awesome tool to enhance your work, head over to the original thread.

It's a slippery slope...
