    Is there any free/commercial tool for comparing Nib files. Like if I have some Nib files in a base repository and I modified some of the Nibs in a local directory. I need to see what Nibs have actually changed and in those Nibs, what Dialogs or Menus have changed. Does Apple Glot have this functionality. I understand that nibTool can extract the strings from the Dialogs and Menus. But it is commandline tool. The person who localizes the Dialogs is expected to give a localzied nib file. But he must have a way to know what Nibs have changed and Specifically what dialogs he has to localize. basically looking for a Diff and Merge tool for Nibs.

    I don't think this does exactly what you want (but maybe it does) but it's certainly designed to help the process you are talking about:

    Localization Suite

    I must admit I've never used it but it's on my list of things to download and try...

    Thanks for the link. But I am basically looking for a simple Diff/Compare tool first.
