mutiple language for Any Video Converter

Acknowledgement

Currently, Any Video Converter has gained the favor and popularity among millions of users. Some of them contribute in translating the respective version of Any Video Converter for us fervently. Hereby we thank them for their contributions. We also appreciate any further translation which need to be updated.

You can help us translate Any Video Converter to any target language that you are specialized in, from any of the current versions of the program. All the strings which need to be translated are embedded in the English language file (lang_eng.ini).

For instance, if you volunteer to translate the English version to Norwegian version, just follow these steps:


Step 1. Find the INI file

The INI file format is a standard for configuration files. The language configuration of Any Video Converter is stored in the INI files.

Go to the program files folder of Any Video Converter (the path could be X:\Program Files\AnvSoft\Any Video Converter Professional, X stands for the hard disk drive letter such as C, D, E, etc.)

Go to the program files folder of Any Video Converter

Open the "lang" sub-folder , and you will see the INI files of various languages.

Open the lang sub-folder

Step 2. Create an INI file named "lang_nor.ini"

Open the lang_eng.ini file, and then save it as lang_nor.ini.

Please save the text file with Unicode Encoding, since Any Video Converter is complied with Unicode encoding.

Save the text file with UTF-8 codec

You can edit the general information of the new version that you are going to work at. In the General section of the INI file, you can tell people which version of the Any Video Converter program is being used in your translation, the language. If you wish to be contacted by people who are interested in your translation, you can add your name and email address.

[General]
version=3.31
language=Norwegian
translator=Your name

Email=your_email@example.com
...

Save the changes, and then restart Any Video Converter, you should see that the Norwegian language option appears in the menu Edit->Language....


Step 3. Translate the INI file

INI files are simple text files with a basic structure. The basic element contained in an INI file is the parameter. Every parameter has a name and a value, delimited by an equals sign (=). The name appears to the left of the equals sign.

name = value

Parameters may be grouped into arbitrarily named sections. The section name appears on a line by itself, in square brackets ([ and ]). All parameters after the section declaration are associated with that section.


For example:

[MENU]

; main menu
item_1="File"
32825="Add DVD..."
...


Another example:

[STRING]
; ClipEffect DLL string resource
1="Video Clipping - %s"
2="OK"
3="Cancel"


You only need to translate the values after the equals sign (=). Please keep the section name and the ID being unchanged.

There are some words that is used for programming language and don't need to be translated. such as

%d
%s
\t
\n
%d

During the translating, you can restart the Any Video Converter program and switch the language option to see if your translation works.


Step 4. Send us translated files and get rewarded

When you complete the translation, you can email the documents to us at support@any-video-converter.com
