BTW: Someone of Lazarus Team reading sometimes this news group? I mean
should I post this proposition in bug tracker (mantis?). Exactly this

> I know there is many ways to do this in runtime (in my case, in my

> descendant forms override it and do translation on local controls) but

> 1. Drop TLabel on form
> 2. Go to object inspector, execute Caption editor
> 3. If you don't want translation then write raw text otherwise choise ID (some listbox) from associated translation file

> That exactly Eclipse works. It would be nice to see it future in Lazarus

I really like this solution of Eclipse. I don't know how Delphi > 2010
localization working (I had no chance to test it), but what I read, it
has some built in localization manager.
