What is it?

verify-string-files is a tiny little Mac command-line tool that verifies localized .strings files against the given "master" .strings file (typically the one in Base.lproj or your development language).

The tool will output problems (like missing strings in your localizations) as errors, warnings or notes that Xcode will pick up and display.

Combined with a custom build step in your Xcode project, it can be used to automatically give compile-time checked keys for your localised strings.
