Howdy all. I have a string that inserts the date and time into a long script (I do telephonic legal interpreting, so I have a variety of scripts I have to read along with date and time), but I would like to have it enter it in spanish.
Barring that, I would like to be able to have it search and replace the english terms with the corresponding spanish terms.
For instance, my string would insert "Estamos grabando la audiencia el Wednesday, July 04, 2018 aproximadamente a las 04:20 PM.", but I would like to either have it insert the day and month in spanish, or replace those with the spanish terms.
I haven't found a way of doing this unfortunately. I tried using image found and screenshotting the actual words followed by clicking and inserting the replacement text but that's really complicated and doesn't work reliably. The only search and replace function I have found has to do with the Clipboard, and not a window. I haven't found ANYTHING about ICU date/time formatting in spanish.
Keyboard Maestro’s text tokens can insert the date in your localised format, but if that is not Spanish, then Keyboard Maestro has no direct help for you.
There might be scripts you could use to get the localised time/date in Spanish (I am sure it could be done with JXA), maybe with the date command.
Yes, indeed the date command will do the trick, specifying a Spanish locale, and an appropriate format (as described by the strftime man page.

This is fantastic! With the regular ICU date/time format I know how to modify the time string to offset for other time zones (for instance I'm in MST but a lot of my calls come from PST), is there a way to do this with your script? I've tried a few things but haven't had success.
Here's how I get local time in Italy using Peter's solution:
TZ=":Europe/Madrid" should do it for Spain or TZ=":America/Mexico_City" for Mexico.
Awesome! I replaced "Mexico_City" with "Tijuana" and it worked.
Is there a way to look up other cities?
I tried ones like "San_Francisco", "Dallas" etc. but it kept giving me the wrong time.
All the cities are in folders for the areas in /usr/share/zoneinfo so if you look in /usr/share/zoneinfo/America you'll find:
