Hi Daniel, you said on another thread:
“…I’m afraid we will only be looking specifically at keyboard shortcuts in the languages into which we are localizing the user interface, which does not include…”
I was just wondering, would it be possible (sometime in the future) to have ALL Dorico’s Object texts properties (ie. Ok, Yes, No, Cancel, Menu, File, Open, Close, New, Form (Windows & Dialog Boxes) Captions etc. etc.) listed in an editor. We can then enter our OWN language equivalents (not changing the defaults obviously) and save it. I can then enter Afrikaans (MY language) in the editor next to the English word for example: Ok = Ok…Cancel = Kanseleer…No = Nee etc. in the editor and Dorico then saves it in an XML format. I can then give the resulting XML file to all my South African Dorico users who speak Afrikaans…the same with Zulu, Xhosa etc.)…just like Google and Windows. This is an excellent way of customizing Dorico in any language on Earth!
I suppose this will require some extra work because the text properties of Dorico Objects, list boxes, combo boxes, Forms (Windows & Dialog Boxes) etc. can thus not be hard coded but filled by means of a text.property variable. Quite a lot of variables or variable dimensions (“Arrays”, if they still exist). I don’t remember, but do Command Buttons still have an autosize property? Some Zulu words may be much longer than an English word ie “Cancel” is “londoloza”…I think.
Will be great, though!
