    Localization of the MediaPortal installer and user interface

    The MediaPortal user interface and the installer (DeployTool) are available in a wide variety of languages.
    If you find some mistakes or missing parts in a translation you can use the attached LanguageTool to
    edit existing translations or add new ones.

    Latest version:

    2009-12-12 View attachment MPLanguageTool.zip

    Note: Translations for plugins are not included in the these translation files.
    If you have an addition for a plugin, please report it directly to the acoording plugin author.

    If you have an updated localization (translation),
    then please start a new thread and attach the file(s).
    One of our Team Members will take a look at the updated file and commit it to our SVN repository,
    so that it will be part of the next release version.

    Usage of the LanguageTool
    1. Download the translation tool ( View attachment MPLanguageTool.zip ) and unzip it to your hard drive
    2. If you want to make an addition to the MediaPortal installer,
      you can download the latest resource file from here
      (right click on the link and select save).
      To update your local language you need to download the corresponding language file from here.
      Download e.g. the file "MediaPortal.DeployTool.sv-SE.resx" to update the swedish translation for DeployTool. Place the file in the same directory as the file MediaPortal.DeployTool.resx.
    3. If you want to update a translation of the MediaPortal user interface,
      download the translation of your native language and the base language file (strings_en.xml) from here.
      (right click on the according files and select save)
    4. Now start the translation tool, select "File -> open"
      and browse to the downloaded file(s).
      Translation_1.jpg Translation_2.jpg
    5. Each text missing a translation is displayed "red"
      Translation_3.jpg
    6. Double click into the empty box next to a missing translation to open the edit window
    7. To help you with the translation ID's an english term describing the selected translation string
      is displayed on the bottom of each window
      Translation_4.jpg
    8. Once you are finished, click "File -> Save" to create an updated translation file in the folder from which you started the translation tool
    9. Create a zip file of the new file(s) and post them in a new thread.
      The next release version of MediaPortal will then contain your translation. :)
    :Dfor your help!

    Note: Localization of the MediaPortal Community plugins

    The correct way is to provide a strings_xx.xml specific to the plugin (like language\movingpictures\strings_it.xml ) and put all the translations there, plugin name as well.​
    Or provide a field in the configuration pane of the plugin itself to "rename" it.​

    Our official language files will _not_ incorporate those.
