The 'Translations' Topic!

Recommended Posts

This thread is for talk about translations.

 

Please don't ask for them in here, it's a thread to assist the people actually doing them.

 

The language files themselves are available on the download page of the main website.

 

PLEASE do not post translations in here (unless they're for 'testing'), email them to me. You can find the email address in the program's 'About' box.

 

=============================================================

 

The current base file is v1.0.0.7 (for ImgBurn v2.4.4.0) and you can download it here.

 

Below you'll find the 'differences' report (made in Beyond Compare) so you can see what's changed / been added since the previous version.

 

It's important that you use it to pick up on where the existing text for items has been edited. The DKLang program only makes totally new (or deleted) entries obvious.

 

Language_File_1.0.0.7_Differences_Report.zip

 

Language_File_1.0.0.6_Differences_Report.zip

 

Please Note: The differences reports must be done in number order! So if you're updating from 1.0.0.5, you need to look at the 1.0.0.6 differences report and make the necessary changes before then looking at the 1.0.0.7 one.

The string in Row 422 in section frm.Main ��" Panel_ISOBUILD_FileSystemLabel.Caption:

 

Fils&ystem:

 

Is that & character intended to be there?

 

I guess it's for the shortcuts (Alt Gr + X) function.

 

There are also & characters in the same section on rows; 389, 434, 436, 437, 438, 570 and 577.

 

Will it work in the final version - if we use that & character to create shortcuts in the menues/selections?

Yup, the '&' is for keyboard shortcuts - the character after the & is the shortcut key.

 

Borland kinda deals with them automatically in menus (makes them unique) but you can specify your own, as I have done there.

 

Unless you're lucky and the translated word happens to have the same character in it, it's probably safer if you leave the & out.

 

Where there are 2 &'s next to each other, that's where I actually want a real '&' character in the string.

I had some issues with the section about "Embedded Changer Control devices". No clue what that was all about. This thread gave me some more info on that subject.

 

I hope this helps other translators. :)

Hi,

 

I would like to test the translated strings from time to time but the current ImgBurn version doesn't support it.

I only got the ImgBurn language file! So, I missed something or not?

 

An other question:

Some of the strings are "Unknown" - is this wanted / correct?

 

And my last question:

I saved the new language file in Unicode or should I choose Ansi?

Hi! :)

 

Q2:

 

The string "Unknown" is what the program shows in some areas in the program; in the burning window if there is no image file loaded.

 

imgburn.png

 

When it's loaded - it shows the details about the file. So yes - they should be translated.

 

Q3:

 

Unicode.

The next version, 2.4.0.0 probably, is the version that will support language files. It's due out very soon now. But I think LIGHTNING_UK wanted to get some translations ready for when the new version is released.

And, I am sure the translators will be able to report any issues, update their files and post them once 2.4.0.0 is released (I plan to work on the authentic Australian language file - "Ocker" - when I have some time - watch for it).

 

Regards

Indeed, I'm not fussed about translations being 100% ready for when 2.4.0.0 is released. The idea was just that I gave them a head start.

 

For the most part they can see how long the English strings are and how much space there is within the GUI. So if I've allowed room for 10 letters and theirs is 50, clearly we're going to run into problems ;)

Hi,

 

@ cynthia:

The string "Unknown" is what the program shows in some areas in the program; in the burning window if there is no image file loaded.

I should have seen this on my own if I had a look at ImgBurn.

Thanks for explainations.

 

@ digidragon:

Thanks for info but I thought / hoped that it will be possible to get a beta of the new ImgBurn to test the translation because most of the German strings are longer than the English ones - some of them almost 300%.

 

@ LIGHTNING UK!:

I would like to know how maintenance of the language file(s) will look like:

E.g. the language file(s) must be updated to fit changes of every new version of ImgBurn?

With DKLang Translation Editor, if you open both the new .dklang file (as source file), plus your latest .lng file (as existing translation file), it will recognise which are the new strings and add them to your .lng file ready for translation.

Yup and then you can just press the green down arrow with the red 'x' int it (on the toolbar) to move between the untranslated strings.

Thanks for answering my question about maintenance - sounds good.

 

DKLang Translation Editor is a big help.

Already translated a couple of other programs / tools etc. and translation of ImgBurn is very comfortable with it.

 

Will be context menu entries also be translated with the language file(s)?

Might have been something I did but can someone check with a liteon drive after altering translation for advanced options /overspeed/ smartburn etc. My smartburn vanished from my translated advanced dropdown.

 

It was probably down to me though.

Sure you have all these items in the translated string for LITEON_ChangeFor.Items at row 25?

 

Please Select...

Force HyperTuning

Online HyperTuning

OverSpeed

SmartBurn

Clear OPC History

I remember them all being there and editing the strings but probably something went wrong when i was tired and my lang translation is not exactly anything but a joke.

The language resource file is missing some strings, e.g.

 

"BTW, your current firmware version is: "

 

Will the missing strings added later to the file?

Thanks for the info!

 

I hope the hard coded strings will be added in the foreseeable future.

The GUI is a good start, I think, too.
