<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="++resource++jquery.datatables/media/css/jquery.dataTables.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="++resource++jquery.datatables/media/css/jquery.dataTables_themeroller.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="++resource++jquery.datatables/extras/TableTools/media/css/dataTables.tableTools.min.css">
<script type="text/javascript" src="++resource++jquery.datatables.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="++resource++jquery.datatables/extras/TableTools/media/js/dataTables.TableTools.js"></script>
<style type="text/css">.clear{clear:both}</style>

Next you can create your datatable:

var oTable = $('#mydatatable').dataTable({
  "sDom": 'T<"clear">lfrtip',
  "oTableTools": {"sSwfPath": "++resource++jquery.datatables/extras/TableTools/media/swf/copy_csv_xls_pdf.swf"}

How to use translations

This addon provide translations of datatables. To use translations you have to init your datatables providing sUrl param:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#example').dataTable( {
      "oLanguage": {
          "sUrl": "@@collective.js.datatables.translation"
  } );
} );
