Overview
WDINT is used to:
  • Create a translation file.
  • Select an existing translation file.
Creating a translation file
To create a translation file:
  1. In the WDINT wizard, select "Check out the messages to translate" then "Create a new translation file".
  2. Select the translation language: this information is used to suggest a name for the extraction file generated by WDINT (".WDM" file).
  3. Specify the name and path of the file to generate. By default, the name of the file corresponds to the name of the translation language followed by the ".WDM" extension. This file is saved in the setup directory of WDINT.
    Reminder: Each extraction file is associated with two translation files (".TXT" files): a file containing the messages in the source language, a file containing the translated messages. This file is translated by WDTRAD (supplied with WDINT).
  4. Go to the next wizard step to select the libraries to translate (see next step).
To create a translation file:
  1. In the WDINT wizard, select "Check out the messages to translate". Go to the next wizard step.
  2. Select the language of messages to check out.
  3. Specify the name and path of the file to generate. This file will contain the messages in the selected language. By default, the file name is "framework.wdmsg" and it is saved in the "Personal" subdirectory of the product used.
    Note: The "wdmsg" file format corresponds to the format used by the WDTRAD translation tool (supplied with WDINT). It is also possible to:
    • check out the resources in text format (txt extension): the checked out file can be translated with WDTRAD (supplied with WDINT) or another translation tool.
    • check out the resources in HFSQL format (fic extension): the checked out file can be translated only with WDTRAD (redistributable tool supplied with WDINT).

Note: Source language

The source language is the language from which the translation will be performed.
  • In the French version of WINDEV, WEBDEV or WINDEV Mobile, the strings in French are taken into account.
  • In the International version of WINDEV, WEBDEV or WINDEV Mobile, the strings in English are taken into account.
Selecting an existing translation file
To select an existing translation file:
  1. In the WDINT wizard, select "Check out the messages to translate" then "Complete or modify an existing translation file".
  2. WDINT proposes the list of extraction files (".WDM" extension) created on the current computer. The following details are returned for each file: its location (full path) as well as the information regarding the last modification (date and time).
    If the translation file to modify is not displayed in this list, the "Find" button enables you to select the ".WDM" file to modify.
    Select the ".WDM" file to modify. The framework (".DLL" files) associated with this file will be automatically selected (see next step).
Overview
WDINT allows you to create a file containing messages to translate and start the WDTrad translation tool. WDTrad features a dictionary that allows you to keep your translations. Thus, data already translated is automatically found in the dictionary in subsequent translations.
Creating a file of messages to translate
To create a translation file:
  1. In the WDINT wizard, select "Check out the messages to translate". Go to the next wizard step.
  2. Select the language of messages to check out.
  3. Specify the name and path of the file to generate. This file will contain the messages to translated in the selected check-out language. By default, the file name is "framework.wdmsg" and it is saved in the "Personal" subdirectory of the product used.
    Note: The "wdmsg" file format corresponds to the format used by the WDtrad translation tool (supplied with WDINT). It is also possible to:
    • check out the resources in text format (txt extension): the translation file can be translated with WDTRAD (supplied with WDINT) or another translation tool.
    • check out the resources in HFSQL format (fic extension): the translation file can be translated only with WDTRAD (redistributable tool supplied with WDINT).
  4. At the end of the wizard, WDINT automatically launches WDTRAD if it has been installed on the computer.
