When you configure a Google Gadget widget using Widgets, the default component name and property display names are localized properly such that when you run Expeditor, for example, in another locale, those names appear in the language of the active locale.
However, if you change the component name from its Google Gadget default, or if you add or change any property display names from their Google Gadget preference defaults, those names will not be localized properly when using that widget in another locale, but rather will remain in the language in which you modified them. This consideration applies specifically to the Component name
and Display name
fields on the Configure a Component
wizard panel. If the component name or property display names are modified, those modified names will not appear localized when using the widget in a different locale.
For example, if you create a Google Gadget widget while active in the US English locale and change a default display name using the Configure a Component
dialog, when you later use that widget while active in a different locale, such as German, the changed name will appear in US English, not that of the active German locale. For background information, see Google Gadgets and Internationalization
