PA.c Installer 3.5.19 and Platform Installer 17.1.1 Translations

The Installer (used for individual .paf.exe installers) and the Platform installer share the same strings for translation. These are a little different than the .locale files included with the platform as they can't be translated and then tested directly by translators. Nor can they use the iniTranslator Portable utility to handle translations. Platform 12.0 debuted a new cloud-portable-local installer with multiple new strings included. The goal of these is to make it easier on the end user to handle install to all the different locations supported by our platform and apps.

To that end, a new NSH file with the strings in English has been made available. A zip file with the new strings as well as existing strings for other languages can be downloaded here: These are the same installers included with the current PA.c Installer 3.5.19. You can also see many of these strings in action with the current Platform's installer with the exception of Armenian which will be updated in the next release.

You can also use the current Google Chrome Portable release to test out other strings including downloading. This way you can see the strings used by the PA.c app installer that aren't used by the platform installer like downloading messages.

Look at the English.nsh as your guide and copy in the missing section to the language you are updating. Switch the ${LANG_ENGLISH} string on each line to the one for your language.

Please post the updated strings as a comment here within PRE tags or on and link to the post. Strings must be submitted by ASAP as the platform is being packaged TODAY to make the cut for inclusion.

Thank you all for your help!

BONUS POINTS: When you're done, please consider helping out with the platform localization if your locale isn't yet up to date or needs some tweaking.
