How to translate Password Depot into other languages?

Post by AceBIT » November 12th, 2010, 8:05 pm

We receive many requests from users who would like to translate Password Depot into their own language.

Here are some instructions on how to do that:

First, check if the language is already available here:

https://www.password-depot.de/en/langua ... _depot.htm

If not:

1) Download and install the "SIL Editor": http://www.sicomponents.com/soft/SilEditor_Setup.exe

2) Download the language package corresponding to the version number you want to translate:
  • Version 12 (Build 12.0.4)
    pd12custom.zip
    (173.47 KiB) Downloaded 63 times
    (Updated on February 14, 2019)
  • Version 11
    pd11_Custom.zip
    (170.67 KiB) Downloaded 163 times
    (Updated on June 5, 2018)
  • Version 10
    pd10custom.zip
    (159.78 KiB) Downloaded 287 times
    (Updated on December 22, 2016)
  • Version 9:
    pd9custom.zip
    (182.43 KiB) Downloaded 290 times
    (Updated on April 7, 2016)

    (Updated on September 1, 2014)

    pd7custom.zip
    (190.65 KiB) Downloaded 833 times
    (Updated on April 15, 2013)
  • Version 6:
    pd6custom.zip
    (131.29 KiB) Downloaded 692 times
    (Updated on June 15, 2012)
  • Version 5:
    pd5custom.zip
    (119.33 KiB) Downloaded 744 times
This file contains the current translations in German, English, French, and Spanish.

3) Extract the sib files into the Password Depot program directory (by default this is C:\Program Files (x86)\AceBIT\Password Depot 12)

4) Load the .sib file in the SIL Editor and enter your translation into the "custom" column.

5) Save the sib files and launch Password Depot. When you now click in Options/General you can find your new language in the drop-down “Language”.

6) If you want to allow us to use your translation on our website, please send us by email a written accreditation. Of course, we will mention you and your website as a translator and provide you with a lifetime free license.

General hints:

Please take into account the following considerations:

Translating of “%” symbol. The symbol % plays a very important role in Delphi projects, usually, it is not used for displaying the percent sign but for special formatting purposes. Therefore all words, beginning with % must be repeated in the translation EXACTLY AS IS.

Example:
  • English: Connected to %s as %s
    German: Verbunden mit %s als %s
    French: Connecté à %s comme %s
or
  • English: %.2fKB (%d bytes)
    German: %.2fKB (%d Bytes)
    French: %.2fKo (%d octets)
Translating MultiLines. When translating multi-lines double-click on the un-translated cell to open the Multi-Line Editor. Please note, that the number of lines in the translated cell must be exactly the same as in the original.

String Lengths. The same strings in different languages may have very different lengths. For example, some phrases, translated from English to French may become 2 times longer. Sometimes this cannot be avoided, but whenever possible, please try to make translations not too much longer than original phrases as it may negatively affect the user interface.

Hi, I just downloaded the files for the new version and opened them with sileditor, but there's no "custom" column for the translation (as it was in the v5 files), just english, german, french and spanish. Thanks in advance ;)

Okay, I found how to add the new language in the tools menù ;)
