Translating GenoPro in a Foreign Language

GenoPro has a built-in interface to make it easy for you to translate (localize) the software in any language you want.  With a few hours of work, you can localize GenoPro in the language of your community.  This page explains how to translate GenoPro's menus, dialog windows and messages.  The translation of the HTML reports is explained on a separate topic.

How to translate (localize) GenoPro?

The first step to translate GenoPro is to select the language you wish to localize GenoPro.  GenoPro will instantly display the translated menus of the selected language.  If you wish to translate a new language, then you will see all the text in English, as no localization has been done yet.

Translating the Menus

The easiest place to start the localization is translating the menus.  If you press Ctrl+Shift+M (or select the menu item Translate Menus), you will see a dialog to translate the menus.

Translation of the Menus
Translation of the menus

The first column(s) contain the text in your local language while the columns on the right display the original text in English.  This way, you can instantly see what has been translated and what remains to be done.

Each menu item has two text entries: the Menu Text and the Status Bar.  The status bar is a short text description displayed at the bottom-left of the screen when a menu item is highlighted or when the mouse is hovering on a toolbar icon.

You may use the & character to designate an accelerator in your menu.  For instance, the text &Open will designate the letter O as the accelerator (shortcut) to the menu command to open a file.Keyboard Accelerator for a menu

Translating the dialogs

Translating the dialogs (windows) is done by selecting the menu item Translate Dialogs from the Language menu, or by clicking on the top-right icon The translate icon.  Under Windows Vista and Windows 7 using the Aero effects (transparentcy), this icon may not be however if you click in the area where the icon should be displayed, GenoPro will bring the Translate Dialog.


Translation Dialog
Translation dialog

Translating a dialog is a very straightforward step, on top you can select the dialog you want to translate, right beside enter the Caption of the dialog.

Dialog Caption 

Text - Enter the translated value of the  grayed English Text column.

Text Fallback - The fallback mechanism is used to avoid repeating the same value between dialogs. A good example are the [Ok], [Cancel] button that are most of the time identical in all windows. When you enter a value in the fallback column this value will be used as default for any other controls with the same ID.  If there is a value present in both Text and Shared will be used.

Translating the Enumeration

Enumeration are lists of data that can be selected when filling the forms. For instances the Gender is a choice between Male, Female, Pet or Unknown.

You can translated the enumeration like the rest of the application from the Tool - Language - "Translate Enumerations..."

Translating the Tags

Tags are values display in the Table Layout. Each tag has a name, description and a shared text.

Collaboration Settings

Once you have translated a few entries, GenoPro will prompt you if you want to upload your changes to the server GenoPro.com.  This way, others may benefit from your work and may complete the remaining translation.  So far, GenoPro has been localized in 28 languages, with the help of hundreds of collaborators who made over 10,000 modifications on the server.

Upload Translated Text to GenoPro.com

If you accept to upload your modifications on the server, GenoPro will ask you to enter your email and password.  This is optional, however it helps us to know who did the translation and also give you a reward for your work.  You username and password is the same as any other GenoPro service such as accessing the support forum, sending a file to another user, creating a backup and publishing your family to http://familytrees.genopro.com.
