Change the default language of an application with Alfred


I just finished my work on a new extension for the Alfred Powerpack.
This extension detects all available localizations for a specific application and let’s you choose one of them.


Then it changes the language of the application and restarts it.
It’s easy to use and could come in handy if you want to see another localizations of an application or if you don’t like the localizations in your language without changing your system’s default language.

Just download this extension, install it and it’s ready to use.

Download!

This extension is written in AppleScript and Unix.

If you experience any troubles with this, hit me on twitter.
Enjoy.

EDIT:
If you don’t have the Alfred Powerpack or you don’t want to use Alfred for this task, here is the source code of the extension.

Convert ASCII-text to binary and vice versa via Alfred

Update:
I wrote a new and better version of this extension. You can find it here.

Here’s another fun thing to do with the Alfred Powerpack.

With this extension you are able to convert regular text to binary code. Or decode binary ASCII to human-readable text.

Just type “bin con ” into Alfred followed by either ” en” and the text you want to encode or ” de” and the text you want to decode.
This extension will do the conversion for you and copies the result to your clipboard.

BinToASCII

This extension is written in AppleScript and does not require an internet connection to work; the conversion is done inside the script and does not rely on an extern service.
It also uses growl to notify you, when the script is done.

Enjoy.

UPDATE:
The extension uses Growl v1.3.
If you use a earlier version of growl, change
“tell application “Growl”” to
“tell application “GrowlHelperApp”“
