Laurine

A localisation code generator written in Swift. Laurine is a Swift script that scans your localisation file and generates actual structured code in Objective-C or Swift, making the usage of localised strings much easier. It allows you to remove magical strings from your code so the compiler can actually tell you when you forget to make changes if your localisation file changes. It also introduces type checking for strings that contain runtime format specifiers such as “%@” or “%d”. The generated structures can also be nested so your localisations can be descriptive and easy to traverse.

Local

A OS X app that provides fast, automatic localization for iOS developers. Local provides an alternative to paying for expensive translators by using Microsoft Translator to automate the process.

Local also allows you to create your first Localizable.strings file easily. After you enter all your keys and values into the app, you can copy the base localization into Xcode, which is useful if you want to translate the app by hand, or even have your own translator do so.
