Is it true, that your application does not provide an option to create single language resource DLLs (satellite DLLs) from a Win-Trans 9-Project? Specifications for the project are: Visual Studio 10, C++, MFC. I use the .rc-File for translation.

Any help is appreciated!

Hello KR,

a translated target file created by RC-WinTrans is of the same type as the source file.

.RC -> .RC
.DLL -> .DLL

It is true that RC-WinTrans does not create a translated DLL from an RC file.
You should build a (source) DLL from your RC file. Then you can translate this (source) DLL with RC-WinTrans and RC-WinTrans will create the translated DLLs for you- one for each target language.

Dear Support,

thank you very much for that answer. Anyway, this is confusing to me - I have all my resources in a RC file and want to provide user selectable languages. This functionality is described to be made from so called "resource only dlls" or "satellite dlls".

If I would have always to generate DLLs from my RC first, the workflow would be horribly and difficult to debug.
So, what procedure is your recommendation? I'd appreciate for any tutorial or manual that you provide.

Thank you in advance,
KR

Hello KR,
as I said in my first answer:

"... build a (source) DLL (resources only) from your RC file. Then you can translate this (source) DLL with RC-WinTrans and RC-WinTrans will create the translated DLLs for you- one for each target language."

Dear support,

Thank you again for the answer.
Anyway, the proposed procedure is not useful. One reason is that it would need compilation after any modification in the resource codes.

Do you provide any manual or tutorial for your software? Online help gives no view to the total workflow.

Best,
KR

Hello KR,

we have the online help for the RC-WinTrans application although it does not contain a description of total workflow:
RC-WinTrans 9 Online Help...

Initial workflow:
. 1. Create a translation project.
. 2. Add your RC or DLL file(s).
. 3. Translate your resources (or do not translate, just continue).
. 4. Create the translated target file(s) using the "Project" | "Target Files" | "Write all" button.

When you have changed/updated a source file (your RC file or DLL) then:
. 1. Open the translation project (or press F5 ("Refresh") when the project is open).
. 2. Use the "Update Database" command to update the translation data (add new, update
..... changed and remove deleted resources).
..... Command: "Project" | "Source Files..." | "Update Database" | "Update All Changed" button.
. 3. Check your project for new or changed text to be translated.
. 4. As above (4), update the target files by creating the translated target file(s) again.
