I use a German Windows version. For Czech translations in MS Word I use a tool to display the correct characters. Can I use such a tool together with Visual Localize?
No. Characters in software are read directly from the system resources. Therefore, this cannot work. You will need a Czech Windows version.
I use Windows 2000. Does this mean that I do not need a Japanese Windows version if I want to do a Japanese translation?
Yes, if the correct language package (character set, code pages,...) is installed which supports the Japanese character set. In addition to this, it is necessary to change your "regional and language options" in your Windows "control panel" in order to set your target language (e.g. Japanese) as the "system default language".
Is it possible to translate DLLs which contain more than one language (so called multi-Language EXEs, DLLs)?
Visual Localize does not support multi-language DLLs at the moment! However, we might integrate this feature into a later version.
Which national languages can be translated by Visual Localize?
All languages. However, you need a Windows version that supports the corresponding character set. For instance, if you want to translate from English into Japanese you will need a Japanese Windows version to display the Japanese characters correctly. Another solution is the installation of a corresponding target "language package" for Windows 2000 or XP. For this, you have to set the desired language as "system default language" for your operating system as all dialog previews in Visual Localize are generated from your OS.
