Helping with translations

Translating Cheez is very easy and should not take more that 2-3 hours. If you are interested in helping with a translation, here are some basic help notes (if you have any problems, please contact me by email).

a) Go to Cheez\Languages\ directory
b) Copy and paste the "EN.txt" file so that you create "Copy of EN.txt"
c) Rename "Copy of EN.txt" to "xx.txt" where xx is the 2 letter code of your country
d) Open it in a text editor e.g. Notepad
e) The first lines should be in english always:
Name = NewLanguageName
Id = xx
Encoding = NewLanguageName (ISO-8859-1)

Now after the line
you have to translate everything that does NOT start with a question mark
[;] and ONLY to the right of the equal mark [=]
mRes1 = Importing %s
should become
mRes1 = TranslatedWordForImporting %s
Do not delete/translate the [%s] you may encouter.

Save the file and run Cheez. Select NewLanguageName from the Languages menu (it should be there!). Your translated strings should appear!

There are three lines for you (the translator). These are displayed when someone opens the Help/About form. They are:
afRes33 = Name Surname (your name)
afRes34 = (your site/email or a (-) if you don't want anything to be displayed)
afRes35 = A small dedication e.g. Greets to all!

Translating the site

You can also help translating the site: only this small page needs translating. If you translate it, please send me your work so i can put it online!
