Translations to Other Languages

Hello Everyone,

In the hopes that translators are subscribed to replies from this thread: EasyBCD 2.3 beta is nearing release and is string-complete. There should not be, God willing, any textual changes from now until the final release (which is hopefully very, very soon), meaning you can feel free to translate based off 2.3 Beta:

The biggest changes involve adding Windows 10 references were appropriate, deprecating references to Vista/7/8 by replacing with "BCD" where appropriate, the change from "timeout options" to "menu options" as the purpose of that entire page has changed, the metro bootloader strings, the text for the Useful Utilities, and the EFI help text.

The process and utilities involved in creating or updating localizations has not changed.

Thank you!
Hi Mahmoud,

Hope everything is OK (please verify!) and let me know.

Thank you all very much. I'll integrate all these into the next build and post back here with any questions or feedback as needed.

@bovirus the parent locale refers to the language from which strings that have not been set should be pulled. All languages should default to en-US (EasyBCD's default language) unless they are overriding another language, for example, let's say you are publishing a local Italian dialect, then you would use <parentLocale>IT</parentLocale> because IT inherits from en-US anyway.

Hi bovirus:
I have just given a look at your latest translation file, in my opinion it's almost perfect.
I added your name in the "About" box, please let me know if you prefer to be mentioned by your nickname only.
You'll find the updated Italian language file attached here.
Waiting for a reply I thank you very much for your effort.
