Categories: Localization

Author: Sisulizer

Latest version: 2010 Build 314 (2.1.314)
Added 2007-02-15Updated 2011-04-28

Visual software localization tool.

Localization with Sisulizer involves three steps:
- Scan the application and locate all of the text: Sisulizer can work directly with your C#, Visual Basic, Visual C++, C++ Builder, Delphi, Turbo languages, Java, Windows binary files, HTML Help (.chm), XLIFF, or with .NET. The software works visually with HTML, and XML. Sisulizer can also grab text from text files and databases. You determine which Windows resources you want to localize, including icons, menus, dialog boxes, strings, accelerators, versions, and manifest resources.
- Translate the text with Sisulizer's visual editor: you can begin the translation work yourself, and mark each phrase as translated properly, auto-translated, translated by best guess, out for review, or complete. Use Sisulizer's Exchange Wizard to create and send your translator a single file that contains a self-installing Sisulizer Translation Edition, along with your project file.
- Build the localized version
