There is often a need to test your controllers for higher level functional tests. In Lithium using its own test suite this is easy.

Practical Internationalization in Lithium

Just thought I would write some jottings about internationalization as it is something I seem to do quite a lot of these days. (I have lived in Japan for 15 years with most of my websites being in Japanese so I get asked this a lot!).
