MPS support for localized languages (Unicode, i18n in constructs, etc)

Good day.

I found something strange: is MPS ready for making localized languages (Cyrillic) at least at the end-user level, not saying about using Unicode names in MPS and lower Java level?

I’m following this as I’m interested too.

This is something that @voelter has complained about a few times :slight_smile:

As far as I know, no. You could in your editor use the “read only access” cells, that permits to calculate logic to calculate some string to display and that logic could look into some user configuration and show localized strings, however there is no mechanism to localize the aliases, which is a problem.

So, no MPS has not support for localization. If you know what you are doing you can get most stuff done through tricks but you have the alias problem and there is not known solution for that.
