Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-397) Request for multi-language GUI
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2008 11:59:44 GMT


Felix Knecht commented on DIRSTUDIO-397:

Some hopefully usefull hints:

- 'Normall' only the content from needs to be translated
and be put into a file specific to your language (e.g. for German or for Swiss German).
- You only need to translate what is different to the origin file. If a property isn't found
in your translation file it's falling back to the main *.properties file.
- Use eclipse' PropertyEditor in the 'Properties' View to edit the values. This will do the
Unicode encoding stuff for you and prevent you from having afterwards strange characters within
your translation.

> Please do not use Java properties files for multi-language, XML is better for modifing.
