      Description

      We could do some improvements for externalizing strings in alloy view files.

      1. we could add the Externalize Strings... option in Source context menu (mouse right click > Source ) as well.
        Here I have attached the context menu I am getting.
      2. It would be better if we can disable Externalize Strings... menu option when cursor is placed on an already localized message key.
        I feel, It's a better option rather than having an active menu item without any action.
      3. We could do the same (disabling menu option) if the cursor is placed at random position or non-alloy view file.
