Hi Johnny,

I'm playing a little with macros (my level is probably one step or two
above beginner) and making extensions out of them. I found a few examples
online and I got it to work.

I don't know if I'm going to share anything in the future (because I don't
think my extensions will fulfil anyone else's needs than my own and they
are probably poorly written anyway), but if I want to do that, there's a
minor problem: My macros interact with the user (usually me) in Swedish,
and I guess it would be a good idea to at least write an English version
for sharing with others.

However, it would be nice if the extension adapts to the user's locale when
installed (and falls back to English when the user's locale is not
available, that is in most cases). Is that possible? A link to some guide
of some sort would be appreciated. I found nothing so far.

IMO, as English is the lingua franca of IT, writing *any* code should always be done in English (including comments). Using any other language leads to what you're experiencing: no one will read the code, other than a native.

As for user's interactions, yes, a translation into English could be of use. I'm using po files with a Basic adapted gettext() function I had written for that (well, it's a little more convoluted but you get the idea).

My 2 (euro)cents.
