The following screenshots show a browser action's tooltip that has been translated into English, Spanish, Serbian, and Korean.
To localize the extension manifest, extract all user-visible strings into message catalogs, and define the default locale.
chrome.i18n.getMessage("messagename", "one parameter")
chrome.i18n.getMessage("messagename", ["one", "to", "nine", "parameters"])
For more details, see the documentation.
We're more than happy to hear your feedback, not only on our implementation and documentation, but also on the API design. You can reach us at the chromium-extensions group.
