Hi

The application is still in beta, but I think it is possible to "fool" the program.

Copy the existing English.lng and place it temporarily on your desktop and rename it to OriginalEnglish.lng

Copy the content of your translated file and paste it in the folder in the application called English.lng (remember to mark up all the previous content first.)

That worked for me with another IObit program in similar circumstances some years ago.

Cheers

Can somebody tell me how to change language?

I put the lng file into C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\StartMenu8\Language

Hi

I have counted the words that needs to be translated in StartMenu and it comes out as less the <76 as far as I can see.

Quite an easy job I think :-) (15-30 minutes perhaps all in all)

Cheers

Piece of cake...! :wink:

Here´s the Swedish language file attached.

 

 

Hi eson

Edit: Sorry!! I must have used ver 1 beta for the counting of words.

In version beta 2 there are 251 words - still an easy job, but not as easy as I said - sorry! Cheers solbjerg

Hi solbjerg!

In my opinion, it´s not the amount of words or strings that makes translating software difficult. It all depends on the English referent file. Correct English - no problems... bad English - big difficulties. Of course it also depends on the translators English skills, and knowledge of the software subject, but most important is the English language file.

This is my personal experience after more than 200 software translations (see my website).

Hi eson

Knowing the program and where the strings fit in is in my opinion more important than if the English text is precisely correct. The important thing is that the translation conveys the correct meaning, in my opinion, not if a specific word is translated in accordance with a dictionary. :-)

Sometimes the sentence structure or the spelling and even sometimes the use of a wrong word illustrates that the English text is written by Chinese programmers. :-)

Years ago I sent an English translation file to IObit to try to correct the obvious errors in the original file, but I am not sure that they used it. :-)

Cheers

p.s. There is a difference in the amount of work required if you have to translate 250 word or if you have to translate 21.000 words. It is not more difficult - but it takes a longer time. :-)
