Since javascript files are plain text their internatinalization is harder. Is it possible that all .js files are converted to .php ones?

Here is a sample patch for wp-admin/list-manipulation.js.

Translated strings cannot be concatenated into a sentence because you cannot assume word order.

'<?php echo addslashes(__('Are you sure you want to delete this')); ?>' + ' ' + what + '?'

should be

'<?php echo addslashes(sprintf(__('Are you sure you want to delete this %s?'), $what)); ?>'
