6. Help us translate

Please download StartMenu8 Language.lng firstly.

Please help us translate both of them via following method:
- Open the '.lng' file with Windows "NotePad" or any other text editors. And you can translate these English words into your own language now.
- All you need to do is translating the words to the right of “=”. Note: Please Do not translate "%s", "%d", "<a>%s</a>" or "<a>%d</a>".
- Please strictly follow the format. Please send you translations to beta-feedback@iobit.com
(edit: We should not allow downloads of translations to be attached. They should be vetted by you prior to posting them. This would be a great avenue for malware.)
Thanks -so- much in advance!


Cheers.

First post is edited for new Start Menu 8 Beta 2.0.

Please use the English.lng file in the Language folder @:
C:\Program Files\IObit\StartMenu8\Language

Attention: (EDIT: The link is re-linked to the English.lng file at post #4 in this thread)
The file, of which the link is connected below, which is shown in the first post quote is wrong and the file downloaded is for Beta 1.0!
