EasyBCD build 170 (just uploaded) adds new keywords "MinimumWidth" and "MinimumHeight" to each dialog's translation files. Setting this value provides a new minimum window size for each language, letting the translator set the size of the window that suits them best.
Also includes the completed French translation.

I think instead of my giving translators the option of choosing their default fonts, I should just stick to OpenType fonts which will automatically fall back to fonts that have the needed glyphs/symbols.

Thanks for the language update.

Addendum:

Important point: anyone using MinimumWidth and MinimumHeight should use the "derive from parent" checkbox unless they actually select a custom value.

I believe it's safe to say that the strings for EasyBCD 2.2 have been finalized and will not change before the release. Any string-changing modifications to EasyBCD will be pushed back to 2.2.1 or similar.

Please download and use the latest string pack from this link and NOT from the latest EasyBCD beta! Please do NOT use the language pack you have previously submitted, as I have made changes to the XML files for all languages to synchronize the versions!!
Language pack zip file: https://github.com/NeoSmart/EasyBCD-Localization/zipball/master

I've been going through the translations and cleaning up the strings and syncing the versions.

The following strings have not been translated and need to be translated before EasyBCD 2.2 can be released:

Code:
---------------------------

The following strings have changed since they were translated and need to be updated before EasyBCD 2.2 can be released:

Note that MinimumWidth and MinimumHeight strings are not included in the list above. If your language does not show properly in EasyBCD due to window size, please set MinimumWidth and MinimumHeight accordingly.
In a week or so I will send out an email to all translators who have not sent in the final changes to make sure they've seen this message.

Also, all translators, please remember that you can add your name to the AboutBox aboutText1. Example:

EasyBCD is the ultimate bootloader & bootloader management tool. There is no guarantee that EasyBCD will work with all versions of Windows - always make sure you're using the latest version available.

• Lead developer: Mahmoud H. Al-Qudsi
• Active Ingredients: Sweat, blood, and tears
• Powered by C++, C#, Dr. Pepper, Excedrin, and Visine
• All your boot are belong to us!
becomes

EasyBCD ist der ultimative Boot-Manager und Bootmanager-Werkzeug. Es gibt keine Garantie daß EasyBCD mit allen Windows-Versionen funktioniert - benutzen Sie immer die letztgültige verfügbare Version.

• Deutsche Übersetzung: Wolfgang Milhard
• Aktive Zutaten: Schweiß, Blut und Tränen
• Unterstützt von C++, C#, Dr. Pepper, Excedrin, und Visine

If your translation is not in either of the list boxes above, displays fine at the current window size configurations, and you've added your name to the about box: thank you! You're all set and see you next version!
 
Updated Ukrainian translation.

Changes:
1. added missed strings for EasyBCD (saveFileTitle & updateFoundText2);
2. updated translation for MainUI (lblDeduct2 & lblLimit2);
3. removed two strings in MainUI (chkEntryMemory & chkEntryCpu) according to English localization;
4. updated copyright date in AboutBox;
5. other small fixes/changes.

Updated Polish Translation strings

I've made update to translation. Based on package from link above.
It should be OK now. If not, then write me about problems :wink:

If you need translation to Polish of other programs, then write me PRV.

I could do a translation into Dutch. Is there a way to install the beta on a USB-disk with a bootable windows partition instead of the currently booted system disk?
