First, you need to check with the development team on whether they have
internationalized the source code or not.

If so, have them extract a strings property file. This should have
everything you need. You can pass it over to your LSP and they'll do the
rest.

If not, heh, you're all in for a big headache. If your strings are
embedded, this means you will need to have a way to apply the translations
without duplicating your source code and without overwriting the source
language.
