I built ZenMulti to make my products multilingual in minutes (zenmulti.cc)

For the past two years, I've spent my weekends building PrettyClean, a macOS disk cleanup tool whose main feature is that it cleans up the cache generated during development by tools such as SBT, NodeJS, Tauri, Maven, and many others. Luckily, PrettyClean is loved by developers in different parts of the world. In order to make PrettyClean support multi-languages, I have to copy, paste, upload, translate, check, download over and over again, and I was quite confused when facing those unfamiliar languages, and had to ask my friends for help. In the end, the progress and results were not very satisfactory. Until I built ZenMulti.

Not wanting to repeat the painful process, the reasons for building ZenMulti are: 1. to take advantage of the GPT to make translations more accurate, even in languages that are unfamiliar to me. 2. I didn't want to repeat the copy, paste, upload, and download operations; I wanted to focus on what was important: building my business.

ZenMulti runs in vscode as an extension (reads and writes are automated) and utilizes the GPT model to translate the code's language resource packs into multiple languages to achieve the goal of multilingualism. I hope ZenMulti will be as helpful to you as it is for me, and I'd love to get your feedback.
