I also added an entry in as it appears that is
being used for localization. I am still not seeing the additional
field in my interface. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what
could be happening?

you go any listView's "fields:" definition you will find examples. You can add the field/column
there. If the "dataProvider" of the listView is already getting this column as part of the
current API response (eg. debug it with FireBug or see the API), you are done. If not then
the dataProvider needs to be changed as well.
