PortableApps in french!

Hi everyone!

I built a fully working version of PortableApps menu translated to french! (without using test.locale)
Does it interests anyone? I think I may start a new SourceForge projets... Am I wrong? Or are you interested in my translation?

No Need For a Fork

The app itself supports multiple languages. And the next release has a full localization system with a selector in the menu to change languages. The test.locale was to test out whether a system like that would work well. It does. So, in the next release, there are files like french.locale in the PortableAppsMenu\App\Locales directory and a menu option to select between them.

So, why would you want to go through all the trouble of editing and recompiling when it isn't necessary?

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

Ok, so I will start my own

Ok, so I will start my own project
PortableApps isn't very easy to use for the common french user... So I will build my own program in order to make this project more easy to use in french.

Thanks, Johann.

Why?

Again, why fork a project just for a translation? The next menu release will be fully localized into French. There are people actively translating the support pages. And the installer will be going multilingual in a followup release. What could starting yet another fork on your own possibly accomplish in addition to that?

Pourquoi

Pourquoi il le pense n'est pas facile employer vous, parlez en français si vous voudriez, j'essayera et traduira pour les anglophones.
