EXIF attributes always in English?

Post by helmut » Sun Nov 06, 2005 9:03 pm

An XnView user has contacted me and asked why all the EXIF attributes listed in the Property dialog ("EXIF" tab) were all in English language, even if the on-screen language is German.

I think this is a bug, since XnView has all the translated terms and should be able to use the appropriate translations.

Yes, currently the EXIF fields are not translated, too many. So i'll try to make the idea of Clo in 1.82

Having text based translations will be a very good improvement. Not so much visible for the end-users, but for all the translators. It will make their job much easier and it can be done much more professional. Various translations can be tried out easily and quickly.

This is nice to hear… We hope language text-files for a while, and this is a good start! :D

:) Hello Pierre !

1.
• BTW, I think that such a file might have the *.LNG extension, which is the most commonly used for this…
- Something like :
Exif_eng.lng
Exif_ger.lng
Exif_fr.lng
… etc
to be placed in the <Language> sub-folder… The English file is absolutely needed as the translation-template, of course !

2.
- Another tiny wish (again) : maybe at one go could you change this damn <bookmark.ini> file as a real menu ? With the common extension *.MNU ?
And create one per installed version in each programme-dir, because like it's located currently, one gets the same Favourite Folders of the browser for ALL versions. In example : the normal version and the Alpha in the same drive have the same bookmarks… :|
