Localization Dialog

In the “Localization” dialog box you can set if and how a single project element will be localized in other languages. Each localizable project element will then have a “Localization...” item in the context menu or a Localization Button button next to it.

The Localization Dialog

Translation Settings

The translation settings for each localizable project element can be specified in a number of ways:

  • Inherit global settings (default) - will use the coarse granularity selection from the Localization Options Dialog.
  • Never translate the string - even if globally we have selected the project segment for translation.
  • Always translate the string - even if globally we have not selected the project segment for translation.

Localization Identifier

To translate a string, it must be found in one of the Translation Dictionaries. The search is done by a unique identifier. This is called the Localization Identifier. Advanced Installer gives you the choice to:

  • leave it automatically generated (recommended)
  • specify it yourself (useful if you want to use a dictionary with custom IDs)
