[wp-hackers] International plugins - how to test

One easy way I use for checking foreign languages is to use my plugin
It permits downloading the languages files available for your WordPress version
(including necessary additional files for rtl as example). Furthermore you can
activate the quick switcher option and can instantly switch between the
downloaded languages at dashboard on demand.

So if you place at your plugins/theme backend page the output for testing the
date formats (because the plugin operates at backend only), you should be able
to check them.
That's the way I am testing localized stuff.
hope this may help.
