[Mapbender-dev] switchLocale

For Mapbender 2.5 we need a module to switch between different 
languages. Previously there was the module "switchLocale", which 
reloaded the GUI after switching the language. This module has now been 
replaced by switchLocale_noreload:


This is based on AJAX. Each module is responsible for getting the 
current language data, whenever the event "eventLocalize" is triggered 
by switchLocale_noreload (eventLocalize.trigger()). Besides the event 
"eventLocalize", the module should register its localization function 
with "eventInit", to make sure the correct language is displayed on 

We should write a tutorial on how to internazionalize a module. Any 
volunteers? As a template, we can take a look at "tabs" or "digitize". 
All i18nized modules also have to be tagged 
[[Category:Internationalized]] on their module site. The img buttons are 
i18nized in map.js, so they are not listed yet; we need to review and 
test first.

Any questions on i18n? Let us know
