Developer tool helps localize your app.


Developer website: Julien Dufour

Mushroom is an easy to use developer tool dedicated to the management of the localized strings. More than a simple editor, it is a fully featured solution which assists you to create and maintain the localized strings of your project and to keep them synchronized with the source code. Mushroom can make you save a considerable amount of time. Working with localized strings will never hurt anymore.
