Re: German language bug "Save as" dialog SOLVED

Hi,

I can reproduce the problem on my German Windows:

With "Use regional settings", I get the partly translated save as dialog.
Selecting "German" explicitly, the save as dialog is translated fine.

Re: Translation tool for upcoming Build 340 now available!

Hi Daniel,

thank you for the information.
I was uncertain, because I can't remember a release without changes in the translation files.

So in this case: Changing the file name of the download or providing file hashes in future would be nice.

If it's not checked (and all is working, as it should), the updater won't show updates, which are not covered by your maintenance plan.
