Create better XLIFF Files for Oracle APEX Translations
One of the many good things about Oracle APEX is the builtin capability to create multilingual Applications. It gives you a set of tools to translate your Application and provide it in multiple languages at the same time.
One of the Key Components of this Translation Mechanism is the creation of an XLIFF File. This File contains all text strings of your Application (that is all your UI Strings, not your Data) and from which to which language it should be translated.

Plugin: resizeable Textarea (remembers Size)
When that little box on that web form you need to fill in is simply too small to show all your information at once, you wish to make the box bigger.
Recreate lost APEX Translations
A couple of days ago i got an emergency call from someone who attended my presentation at DOAG 2010 about APEX Translations.
Apparently they deleted (by accident) their APEX Translations (which reside in WWV_FLOW_TRANSLATABLE_TEXT$) and have neither a DB-Backup of this table nor a Backup of the XLIFF Files. Continue reading

Important things first: i just uploaded ApexLib Framwork 2.1.3, which is a minor bugfixing release.
