I've been searing for a good manual translation tool for android resource files (ie strings.xml).
What I found so far is:
Sequoyah, plugin for eclipse but non existant for Juno, so I have not tried it.
aiLocalizer, an external program written in C# (needs .NET framework, but I can live with that) but this messes up the xml. I would like the result xml to have the translations in the same order, and with the same inserted comments as the source xml.
MOTODEV Studio, discontinued.

I'm not looking for any online tool, but rather one that I can have locally and that helps me figure out which strings aren't already translated to the different supported languages.

Anyone has an Idea?

you can't translate only by a translator, because 70% it does grammar or vocab wrong. If you want to translate to a language, you need to ask a person. Just look at the thread in the same forum here

I'd suggest crowdin or getLocalized, I can't put links yet, but you can look for them. They don't directly translate, but it helps the translation process and let professional translators access your work.

App localizer
If you are looking for a great app translator, try Ackuna.com You can just upload your native files and get free crowdsourced translations of your content, or purchase professional translation by a single translator. When the translations are finished, you just download your file and all of the translations are right where they should be. No additional formatting or anything is required.

Android Lint can help you too. It shows which string isn't translated.

I'd recommend Crowdin too. It's a localization project management platfom and translation tool. You can order professional translators from their top vendors. Thier list of proven projects is quite impressive
