Appendix A: Language Translation
IconPackager supports a number of languages, and will load the same language as your Windows system. However, if your language isn't found, IconPackager will by default load the English versions of: prompts, descriptive text, etc. This section describes how you can translate from any language currently supported by IconPackager into your own language.
Each language is stored by name with the extension .LNG in the "lang" (without quotes) folder under the IconPackager folder. The full default path is:
Windows Vista, XP or 2000:
C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\IconPackager\Lang
This path maybe different if you installed to a different drive & folder.
Under the \IconPackager\lang folder for English is a file called: English.lng. This is a Unicode text file, which Notepad in Vista, XP or 2000 can read correctly. In Windows Explorer double-click this file, and at the prompt "Windows cannot open this file", select "Select a program from a list of installed programs." and click . Select Notepad, then uncheck the box for "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click to open the file. Each line is numbered and contains text following the equals sign enclosed in quotes that has to be translated.
4="Icons and Cursors"
Save the file as the name of the language your translating it to and give it the extension .LNG (i.e. English.lng) lowercase is fine, uppercase shown for clarity.
There are some lines that include special commands for IconPackager, they consist of a percent (%) sign or the backslash (\) followed by a letter without a space. The pipe (|) may also be used in some lines. Please leave these in place as you translate. When translating make sure you leave the opening & closing quotes around the text. There are many lines that use these special symbols, here are some examples:
Example of Headings in language file - these won't show in IconPackager, but do not remove.
Example of Comments - do not remove.
Examples of the percent sign (%):
2="%s icon package has been successfully installed."
66="Are you sure want to delete the '%s' icon package?"
179="File Name: %s,%d"
Examples of the backslash character (\):
11="IconPackager will now restore all your icons to the Windows defaults.\n\nAre you sure you want to continue?"
519="&Contents and Index\tF1"
Example of the Pipe (|):
70="Icon Package (*.ip)|*.ip||"
