[Fixed] uGet Portable 2.2.1 - can't select italian language

Hi,
I have installed uGet Portable:
1. Then I haver browsed inside setting for change language: nothing
2. I have edited the file 'uGetPortableSetting.ini' and I have added a new line after 'LastDirectory=\PortableApps\uGetPortable'
the content of this new line is:
Language=it
3. new language (italian) is NOT set.

Note that all language files are inside folder: 'C:\PortableApps\uGetPortable\App\uGet\share\locale'

Any idea?

Environment Variable

It looks like uGet provides no end user UI to set the language. So, it should go based on the OS language by default. Setting something manually in the uGetPortableSetting.ini will only do something if I specifically write custom code to do something in which case it will be mentioned on the app page and/or docs. I didn't, so it isn't.

If you want it in something besides your OS language, you'll need to edit the uGetPortable.ini launcher file within App\AppInfo\Launcher and add an [Environment] section just after the [Launch] section. Then you'll need to add whatever variable and language code similar to Language=it below that. I found no documentation detailing what language code uGet uses.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Here are the instructions inserted in the file 'uGetPortable.ini'

[Environment]
Language=it

It works very well.
Thank You very much John.

Glad to hear. I'll add in some language switching to the settings in the next release.

Fixed in 2.2.3-2

This is fixed in uGet Portable 2.2.3-2. You can now manually set the application language independent of the PA.c Platform and Windows: https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/uget-portable#app-notes

uGet Portable 2.2.3-2 - manual change language

Hi John,
I have seen that in new file uGetPortable.ini there is this Environment value:

[Environment]
Language=%PAL:LanguageCustom%

I was hoping that the program would automatically assume the system language, but unfortunately it doesn't work like that.
I had to add a new line in the uGetPortable.ini file
and the environment section has become this:

[Environment]
Language=%PAL:LanguageCustom%
Language=it

That way it works fine but ..
Is there really no way to get him to automatically assume the language of the system?
Thanks for new build.

It Does, And You Can Specify

You said you wanted to specify it. You do that via this: https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/uget-portable#app-notes

I just switched my Win 10 x64 virtual machine to Italian, extracted the current uGet Portable to the Desktop, ran it, and it came right up in Italian.
