SharePoint 2013 Localizing Display Template

SharePoint 2013 is new and we didn't find documentation for  many items. One of missing items detailed documentaion about scripts in display templates.

I need to localize my template after I checked existing templates I found localization through JavaScript:
  1. They added local string in resource javascript file. You can create a JavaScript and add to your code as below:
      $includeLanguageScript(this.url, "~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Language Files/{Locale}/YourCustomStrings.js");
    < /script >
  2. Code you will add to JavaScript:
    // Add your custom localized strings and then include these string dictionaries in your display templates using the $includeLanguageScript function

    $registerResourceDictionary("en-us", {
    "sampleCustomStringId": "Sample custom string",
    "rf_RefinementTitle_ManagedPropertyName": "Sample Refinement Title for ManagedPropertyName"
  3. To access resource using the following code:
    var diagRes = $resource("item_Diagnostic_ItemTitleFormat");
