One of our clients would like us to translate some content that looks like this:

public class Testcase {
public void test() {
String s = "a";
if (s.equals("b"))
s = s.trim();
else ;

The reason is that in many popular programming languages "if", "else" and others can be localized, for example in vbscript, sql, java etc.

Is there some reference with such localized terms or at least a list of non-translatable items?

Thank you
