Hello.

Here is my first draft/WIP for a French translation.
For the moment, I have only started working on the language.xml file.

Old file (UTF-8) :

EDIT (new file uploaded on Febuary 3rd 2014) :
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ilq0xbq1aom3sxx/Language_French_ANSI.zip



I will work soon on ActionHelp.xml as soon as possible.

For the moment, the main problem is the lack of UTF-8 support in S+.
That's why I see this :

As you can see, there is also a problem with long translation strings that don't fit inside buttons.

Yes, S+ is compiled in ANSI. I've posted many times about this and it's something I've tried to correct, but it requires converting a lot of the S+ code and my attempts had previously failed.

Coding for Unicode is challenging for those who are not very experienced in the nuances (which I am not). Additionally, there are dependencies such as the Boost property tree, Lua, etc. which all have to be worked with to support Unicode.

I know it's possible, but it's simply a daunting task that I've spent much time on, only to have mixed results. The closest I came a while back loaded up and pretty much worked, but most string sequences would only have the first letter and I couldn't figure out how to get it working.

I'm going to spend some time again trying to get Unicode support working as it's really the only shortcoming of S+ that drives me crazy...but is such a big undertaking.

Thank you Rob for your answer.

I have updated my first post with a new link: a new version of the language.xml file in ANSI, and it works fine now.

I will continue to update this file from time to time if I think some words can be translated better.

See you.

Oh, interesting. So saving in ANSI works? That's nice to know. Since I don't speak or use another language, I'm very much in the dark about the nuances.

Thanks!

I'll update the languages section with your file tomorrow...and let a new member who offered to make a German translation to give it a try, saving the file in ANSI.

Yes, it works fine with ANSI so maybe volonteers just have to save their language.xml this way and there won't be any problem (and no need to worry about UTF-8 anymore).

There is still a problem with some long words in other languages. French is quite a verbose language (unlike English, I guess), and some buttons are too small to display the french strings.

But it's almost fine now :)
Thank you so much, Rob for your wonderful software !

Yes, I had made the buttons and labels larger for Polish, but I guess I need to make them even bigger :-)
