Thanks for also taking the time to reply.
In specific cases, as translating it to dutch, one can almost never do a find and replace,
cause it would alter more wrong than good. So yes, one by one would be good, whichbtw,
is also suggested in the manual, I quote page 467 “You can of course use the Find option,
so that you can manually edit each individually”. Can’t get that to work over here.
I would suggest to let the program use an language.ini file or language.lang file or .lng.
It would be easier to translate and implement in the program. Now I do not know if that can be done as I am not a programmer. I did work for a softwarehouse and was business consultant for three years. Implementing our software with clients was also one of my tasks. If changes where due i could give those to the developpers who took care of it.
I also think, if considering to have local distibutors to take care of the translation and give local technical support, it would be appropriate to have a development-kit for that man or woman, with which it will be easier to translate and learn the program to be able to give support. As some languages do need more space for some words it would be handy if one could adjust it a bit without harming the looks of the program of course. Major changes should be reported back to you naturally, but small adjustments only nescesarry for the local translation could than be made.
Just some thoughts. Any way, I do not have the time to do a translation in the way it is presented now. It would be to time-consuming. I am starting with a project to get my own business. Hopefully I will be ready to open the doors to my doors a a half year’s time.
I will start a ICT Advice Buro. Advice with buying new pc, repair or re-installexcisting pc, give courses and more. My market will be home pc users, small businesses and schools.
There will be a lot to learn in that half year. If you could provide me a handy solution or development-kit in the future for translating and local technical support,I would be happy to think about that.
(manual: there are places in the manual where the bullits do not match due to images. If youwant I will check this out and repair that. If ok, pls provide me a way than where I can send the repaired manual)
Thanks for now. Kind regards,
