Localisations portlet
module: Publishing module
supplier: [[{{{supplier}}}]]

This portlet lists all localisation keys and messages. Consists of an editing mode within the portlet, in the basic form this mode can be used to create new localisation keys.

For example:

Locale Message Key: Basket en Basket en_US Cart

This can be used to allow users to freely create new localization keys and edit existing ones from the front end, which will cut down time spent accessing this feature within the backend. Should be used specifically when sites are being built that will be serve multi region users and it is essential to have various language interpretations.
