Localization


GSplit has multilanguage support: all texts and messages can be translated in different languages.

How to change the current language?

Select Tools | Environment Options. Then choose the language you want using the combobox; you can also browse for an existing language file. GSplit language files are given the extension .GSL.

More language files may be available at http://www.gdgsoft.com/gsplit/translations.aspx in the future.

Note that GSplit automatically selects the best language according to your user locale when you run it for the first time.

How to edit/make new language files?

You will find all language files in the GSplit's "Languages" subfolder. They are just XML files with a different extension.

Translate the different XML entries into the language of your choice, and be sure to update the properties, especially names and LCID (see this page for the list of all locale IDs available: www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/lcid-all.mspx).

Finally save the new language file in the "Languages" subfolder, restart GSplit to choose your new language as explained above, close GSplit and restart it again.

If you wish, you can send us your language file at [email protected]; thus we may publish it in the Resource page so other users may benefit from your work.

Note that language files are both used for GSplit, GUnite and Self-Uniting programs, so be sure to translate all resource strings.
