pseudolocalize v1.0.5

An easy way to pseudolocalize strings, objects and arrays


Progmatic use

This module provides an easy way to progmatically pseudolocalize strings. Supports strings, objects, arrays, and strings with a variable.


const pseudolocalize = require('pseudolocalize')

// results in £ôřè₥ ïƥƨú₥ δôℓôř ƨïƭ á₥èƭ
const pseudolocalizedString = pseudolocalize('Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet')

// results in { foo: '£ôřè₥ ïƥƨú₥', bar: 'δôℓôř ƨïƭ á₥èƭ'}
const pseudolocalizedObject = pseudolocalize({ foo: 'Lorem ipsum', bar: 'dolor sit amet' })

// results in [ '£ôřè₥ ïƥƨú₥', 'δôℓôř ƨïƭ á₥èƭ' ]
const pseudolocalizedArray = pseudolocalize([ 'Lorem ipsum', 'dolor sit amet' ])

// results in £ôřè₥ ïƥƨú₥ {{dolor}} ƨïƭ á₥èƭ
const pseudolocalizedStringWithVariable = pseudolocalize('Lorem ipsum {{dolor}} sit amet')

Command line

It also provides a command line program that will pseudolocalize a JSON file, which is how i18n strings are usually provided.


npm i pseudolocalize -g
pseudolocalize strings.json

This will create a new JSON file called localized-strings.json containing exactly the same JSON data as the initial file, but with all strings pseudolocalized.


The tests can be run with npm test
