Joomla! 1.5 is shipped with a JavaScript library called MooTools, and using this library a Lightbox-variant called Squeezebox has been integrated. The Joomla! Administrator makes use of this effect when allowing you to choose an article. SimpleLists makes use of this effect in the backend as well, but you can also add it to the front-end.

If you want to create a language-pack, the best thing is to copy the English language-files and translate them. There are two separate language-packs you need to create: One for the frontend and one for the backend. The frontend only needs one language-file: language/en-GB/en-GB.com_simplelists.ini. For the backend two language-files are used: administrator/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_simplelists.ini and administrator/language/en-GB/ The last file only includes the translation of the menu-item, so could be skipped.
