Check out Catalyst::Plugin::Localize::Simple


I made it to overcome the learning curve of i18n, and it works very well.
Used it to translate English to Spanish, French, Japanese, Italian,
Portuguese, and Chinese Simplified. I provided a CMS for the translation
team to create and modify these translation files. Very simple and straight
forward. Let me know if you have questions on usage.
