Testing for Localizable Strings -- separate string from code

Localizable string are strings that are no longer hard coded and compiled directly into the programs executable files. To do so for tester is to create a pseudo build automaticaly or manually. A pseudo language build means is that the native language string files are run through a parser that changes them in some way so they can easily be identified by testing department. Next a build is created using these strings so they show up in the user interface instead of the English strings. This helps find strings that haven't been put into separate string files. problems with displaying foreign text, and problems with string expansion where foreign strings will be truncated.
