Tracker Updater - some remarks

Post by Peter2 » Thu May 28, 2015 5:51 pm

There is no forum for the "Updater", so I post it here.

I made a screencast with some questions to Updater (usability) - please take a look here:

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the screen-shots - the issue with the untranslated dialogues was because we hadn't had any of our volunteers translate the dialogue. BigMike has been kind enough to provide us with a translation, so this should be included in the next build.

Regarding the issue with the updater, this has been reproduced here and the Dev. Team are pursuing a fix.

Cheers,

Just to point this out - I translated the missing strings in the setup language resource file you provided, so the setup routine should be completely localized in German. The updater's language resources are still not translated to German as I don't know how. So the updater itself will remain in English for now.
I posted about this in the localization tool thread

BTW, Mike:
In one of the tools (see screenshots above) you translated "Schliessen Sie die Anwendungen .." (= the user). But the question is "Should the setup try to close the running applications".

I don't know who created these translations. Actually, I think, these translation came with the product, which Tracker Software uses to create their installers, since the untranslated "Tracker specific" strings are separated in a custom section.

But I changed also some strings, which were not in the custom section. This was one of them :) It will be "Versuchen die Programme zu schließen und erneut zu starten." in future. At least until they get overwritten with the default ones.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the updates!
For the last few years you've been the only one translating our products in German, so indeed this is either some very old string from a different translator, or part of the tool used for the creation of the installer packages.

Regards,
Stefan
