OpenOfficePortable multilang launcher TESTERS NEEDED (Beta1 only for demonstration / test)

This launcher is a mod of the las OpenOfficePortableLauncher of John Haller.

Some changes were made in oder to anable lang support (Error messages and so on in different langauages).

The idea is simple. One Launcher for all supported Languages.

Its an early beta (only for testing) at the moment, please use carefully!

If You have better translations for the french an dutch strings or for other langs, I'll be happy to include them if You'll post it in the https://portableapps.com/forums/other_languages/localization forum.

The Launcher detects the setting of the default regional settings.
At the moment for German, French, Dutch and (as default if no known language is detected) English.
(Keep in mind that the launcher ignores subs.
de-de de-at / en-us en-gb and so on are the same to simplify
the process at the moment).

Install:
Rename original OpenOfficePortable.exe, copy the OpenOfficePortable.exe of this archive to the same location.

If You rename soffice.exe or will use a very long path the error messages will pop up in Your language (if
the language is supported see above).
You can test the effect changing the Default under Start_System Control_Regional Settings or if You have
Windows with one of the supported versions installed on Your system.

The code is under GPL like Johns original.

I'll be happy if John will include it into the original OOoP (or othe app) launcher
or use it wich way he wants, cause I will not publish a mod of John's excellent Launcher.
So if he don't like it It will not included to the next versions (German too).

You'll find it here at the moment, cause it don't fits in one of the
existing releases on PortableApps.com SF project. It will be moved when a Beta or
test folder will be exist.

Source is included

You're right ...

... and many thanks for it :-), but the OOoLauncher uses one more String than the other Launcher (for the long pathname fix).

To add the strings to the pages will make sense, if this strings will be part of the new Launcher.
