recently there have been some changes and (I hope) improvements to
translating WinMerge. All these changes are for current 1.13.x
experimental releases and future 1.14.x stable releases.
Change in source tree structure:
All translated files are now in one Translations-folder and its
subfolders. This hopefully makes it easier to find translated files.
Original (English) files are in original places.
ShellExtension can be now translated using PO files. PO files aren't
used while running the program but they are converted to RC files before
compiling. So you can't update translation of compiled program by
updating PO file like with WinMerge executable.
Hex editor component/Frhed translations:
WinMerge now uses hexedit component from separately installed Frhed
program. This means that hexedit uses translations available and
translation selected in Frhed program. Frhed program is separate
SourceForge project (http://frhed.sourceforge.net/) Frhed can be
translated almost similar way to how WinMerge executable is translated.
It uses POT/PO files.
Please note that Frhed is separate project and separate program so
please submit translation updates, bug reports etc to Frhed project.
WinMerge uses only hexeditor component of Frhed if Frhed is installed.
