Custom Handlebars Template for Plugin

Hi,
In my plugin I have added a new button to the toolbar using the API’s addButton method. Now I would like to show a custom text when the user hovers over the button, just like “Insert date/time” when hovering over the calendar icon. However, setting the label property does not seem to work, I guess due to lacking i18n information. How can I register and access localized labels?
Kind regards
Alexander

Here is how the discourse-local-dates plugin does it:

Hi,
I just spend 40 minutes debugging until I found out that my yml file ended up in config instead of config/locales :man_facepalming: Thank you for your help!
