BOINC translatable text
« on: November 24, 2010, 08:18:51 am »
The latest BOINC versions, beyond 6.10.56 ?? allow for translatable text.

In the btlang file they show up like this:

A text Message from is shown as shown text. The ^ separates the two texts.
Placing two ?? in the unused string will show any untranslated text as:

^to be translated^, the text is marked by ^ at the beginning and end.

The following isn't dependent on a specific BOINC version.
Its the translation of the WWW link text.
Any text is translated from->to, so make sure any short version is down the list.
Like:  First:  "Donate to^Donate to", then "Donate^Donate"
