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.

Advice on Portuguese Localization(s)

There is no real reason to maintain two versions of Portuguese
- Portuguese (Portugal)
- Portuguese (Brazil)
thruout either the platform or any of the portable Apps.

As of January, 2016 both forms are equally normalized orthographies between
- Portugal
- Brazil
- Cape Verde
and more Portuguese speaking countries.

Truncated text in backup window

Submitted by depp.jones on April 25, 2022 - 2:41pm

I just used the backup function again after a long time and found the text being cut off in german (seen here). Maybe this is due to Win 10 (or me) using other scaling settings. The text is displayed as tooltip when I hover over it, but this is not obvious to all users.

Is it possible to add automatic word wrap or maybe a defined line break? I could try some other phrasing, but that would alter the meaning a little bit (something like "Don't close the output window or the prozess will be terminated").

Not sure if it's important, but I keep getting these in my log after building the .paf.exe file with PAc Installer.

Processed 1 file, writing output (x86-unicode):
warning 6000: unknown variable/constant "{ORTABLEAPPNAMEDOUBLEDAMPERSANDS}" detected, ignoring (LangString welcome:1097)
