Language File Manager
The language files are used by SlimBrowser to display
localized interface. They contain the translated version of the English strings.
The language files (*.ini) are all located under the "language"
directory of SlimBrowser installation folder. Each language file contains a list
of entries. Each entry consists of a unique identifier followed by a piece of
text. All the language files are associated by the unique identifiers.
You can create a new language file or edit an existing
language file in the language file manager. After you are done with the
translation, you can email the updated language file to us so that we can
include the changes in the next release. If you are interested in helping
translate SlimBrowser into a particular
language, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Select "Language->Language File Manager" to open the language
- Please input your name, email and website address in the
dialog for proper credit and contact information.
- Select the target language that you want to translate from
the drop-down box. Your current language will be automatically selected if
you are using a localized interface. Please notice that if your operation
system is based on a far-eastern language, you can only edit the language
file in your own language. That's because some European language characters
can't be displayed correctly on these systems.
- If the language you want is not in the list, click New
Language button to create a new blank language file. Please make sure
you use the English name of the new language for best compatibility.
- You will be able to see the language file entries displayed
in the middle table. The first column is a unique identifier for internal
use. The second column shows English text and the third column shows the
corresponding target language text. Select an entry from the table and the
text will be shown in two edit boxes at the bottom. You can edit the target
language text in the target language edit box. You can
press ENTER key to move to the next entry.
- You can sort the entries based on different criterion by
clicking on the column headers.
Clicking on the target language column header will
display the un-translated strings at the top as a convenience.
- To start a new line inside the entry text,
press CTRL+ENTER instead of ENTER.
- Click Save button to save the changes.
- Click the submit button to submit the language file to us so that we can include the changes in the
next release. Otherwise, your changes will be lost when you install the next
