Thanks! :) Assuming the free version of Nexus:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\WinStep\Languages\Nexus\French.ini

If you can, send it over to Winstep support and I'll re-send it to QTP.


Paying version. Sent.

Years old post.. so i'm not sure you are still interested in translations... but if you want I can do GR translation :)

(to be honest I have already started translating nexus dock for my wife that don't speak English)

The post may be old, but the application is still in continuous development. :)

New features are added all the time and with them new settings to the User Interface. Most of the translations at this point are in dire need of an update to bring them up-to-date.

Of course, updating existing translations is not the same amount of work as doing them from the ground up, but the benefits of a free license key still apply to whomever takes on that task.

By GR I assume you mean German, right?

Nope, GR = Greek

From what I know German = DE (Deutsch)

Doh, sorry! Currently very busy getting v18.3 ready for release, must have had a brain fart. :wink:

Anyway, bring it on, that existing Greek translation REALLY needs to be brought up to date! :)

As you are probably already aware, Winstep applications offer multi-language support....

Sorry, this is really about translation into new languages. I haven't seen any references to Íslenska/Icelandic anywhere. Have there been any comments/queries regarding this? Surely there must be some Icelandic Winstep users out there, whether in Iceland or elsewhere?
If I can find a little time and the energy I might give Íslenska translations a go, though it would probably take me an awful long time given that the time I can spend at a computer (due to disability) is very limited these days.
Although my command of the language is mostly limited to reading and a bit of writing, I could always fall back on a little help from Icelandic friends if/when needed.

You can give it a go, but if you're not a native speaker you might be in for more than you can chew. :)

Some terms are very technical, others (as in all good translations) you have to preserve the meaning other than making a literal translation which is too long to fit in the available space.

Well, I'm a very fluent reader (it's speaking where I have a bit of a prob on a/c of the pronunciation being radically different from both Old Norse and Old English and having a lot of inconsistencies) with a large vocabulary. But yes, I realise the chewing bit all too well... OTOH, help is always on hand.

Yeees - technical terms present a peculiar prob as, rather than using spam or even modified ones, for most things Icelandic linguists and philologists tend to make up new compound words from old Icelandic terms, which sometimes can be quite long-winded also. And when it comes to meaning rather than literal translation, again this can offer particular challenges in Icelandic.
But, I simply adore the language so I probably won't be able to resist if and when time and energy permit. :)
All that said, it's probably not strictly necessary as most Icelanders tend to have a fairly good command of English.
