Translating Zoom Player to other languages
In order to translate the Zoom Player Language files you must follow these rules:
- You must be using Windows 2000/2003/XP (or newer).
- You must use a unicode enabled text editor that will not word-wrap (divide long lines into multiple lines) as that will corrupt the language file ordering system. This means, that you can't use NotePad. UltraEdit works well as an editor.
- It is VERY important that the number of lines remains unmodified, you may not leave empty lines or add your own lines to the text as that would corrupt it (see #1).
- There are certain special codes in the text files that you must NOT
modify in any way.
A. "%s" = String variable.
B. "%d" = Digit variable.
C. "\n" = Line Break
- The files reside in Zoom Player's "Language" sub-folder and you must translate the following:
- When translating, rename the files to the name of the language,
- You must not use the "(" character as part of the new language file name.
- When translating "english.keyhelp", make sure to check that it fits well within the interface (Press F1 to bring up the interface from within Zoom Player).
- All translations should be posted to the Zoom Player Translation Forum.
