How to translate the popup menus of AAFs?
In a multilingual application, the popup menus of the AAFs must be translated as well as all application captions and messages. WDINT is required to translate this type of menu.
Reminder: WDINT is an additional tool. This tool creates a specific file (.WDM extension) containing all the translations of the resources found in WINDEV/WEBDEV/WINDEV Mobile. This tool is supplied with WDMSG to extract the captions to translate and reintegrate the translated captions into your application. Contact PC SOFT Sales Department for more details about the conditions for using this product. By default, all the resources in English and in French are supplied with WDINT.

Translating the default popup menu

To translate the default popup menus:
  1. Install WDINT if not already done.
  2. Start WINDEV. On the "Project" pane, in the "Translate" group, expand "Translate" and select "WDINT - WINDEV framework translation".
  3. In the WDINT wizard, specify the language of the files to extract as well as their name, and the path of the file to generate. This file will contain the messages to translate in the selected extraction language.
  4. Translate resources with WDTRAD (included with WDINT).
  5. Reintegrate the translation file.
  6. Generate the WDM file corresponding to the desired language.
  7. Copy the WDM file into the directory of your application.
  8. In WINDEV, open the project description window: On the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, click "Description".
  9. In the "Languages" tab, specify the WDM file containing the requested translations ("Various" tab).
  10. Validate the project description window.
