How to work with the program
Loading of the file with translation
For the beginning operations it is necessary to load files with translation.
If you already have file with translation for your language it is necessary
to select "File" -> "Open" from menu (or to press
a combination Ctrl+N) if you start translation from zero that select
"File" -> "New" from menu (or to press a combination
Ctrl+O). In any case the program will ask you to specify the file with
the template for translation (see Pic.3). If you want to translate phpNuke version
4 it is necessary to select lang-TEMPLATE.php file, if 5
versions lang-english.php file.
Pic.3. The translation template select dialog window.
If before was selected "New" item from menu, on it loading is
completed and it is possible to start translation. If before was selected
"Open" - that the program also will ask to specify the file with
translation. After loading this file it is possible to start the translation.
Saving file with translation
For a saving file with translation in the same file from which it is loaded
it was necessary to select "File" -> "Save"
from menu (or to press a combination Ctrl+S). If the file was not
changed, this item is unavailable. For a saving file under other name it
is necessary to select "File" -> "Save as".
This item is accessible always.
Editing of the table
To change the text of translation, simply rise on this line and start text
entering. However, it is necessary to remember, that in this case input will
begin in I am empty string. Simply to correct the existing text it is necessary
to rise on this line and to press Enter (the text will be selected) and
to press any of cursor keys (the text back should become normal and should the
carriage of input will appear).
The similar effect can be achieved by mouse, sequentially three times having
clicked on the necessary line: the first click will make line current, the
second - to select the text and the third will return the text in edit mode,
and the carriage of input will stand on that place where have clicked the
For fixing input it is enough to press Enter key or simply move to
Search of the strings.
For fast moving between lines intended four items in "Edit" menu:
"Find" searches entry of the given string (see below and Pic.4);
"Find again" item searches for the following entry; "Find
latin" locate the nearest not translated string and "Find missing"
locate the nearest absent string (the string available in the template of
translation, and absent in the file of translation).
Pic.4.The dialog box for search of a substring.
Search algorithm the following: if at the given substring there is one of
characters "*" or "?", it is accepted for a mask and the
string satisfying the given mask is searched. The character "*"
thus substitutes any quantity of characters (or their absence), and the
character "?" - just one character. If these characters in the
given substring are not present, its entry in the text is searched. Such mode
is cancelled if the last checkbox ("Use '*' and '?' symbols as ordinary
characters") checked. In this case always searched entry of the given
substring in the text. Assignments of other three switches, I hope, am clear
from their name.
At current time from options (items "Options"submenu) the grid
font options only accessible ("Font" item).
For an exit from the program it is necessary to select "File"
-> "Exit" from menu or press combinations Alt+X or Alt+F4.
If the file with translation was changed, the program will ask for saving of
