I needed to create a simple i18n library for an open-source project I've worked on last week. So I made this simple and easy to use. When translating, you have two options: the first one is to use a global file on the following format: [language_code] text_id=Translation text_with_format=Number: %.2f text_with_parameter=Hi %s [another_language_code] text_id=Tradução ... The second option is to separate every translation into files named language_code.lng in a folder of your choice. Note that every file on this folder will have the following format: [language_code] text_id=Translation text_with_format=Number: %.2f text_with_parameter=Hi %s The language code can be ISO 639-1 (2 chars, like "en", "pt", "es") or culture code (including the country, like "en-US", "pt-BR", "es-ES"). You can use both these formats on the same file/project without any problem. Finally, use the _() function to get your translation text. It accepts the following syntax: _($sText_id [, $sPar1 [, $sParn ] ] ) The parameters are optional, but the maximum number of parameters is 32. If you need more than 32 parameters (sure?), please consider splitting your string into multiple ones. Note that everything is explained on the Example.au3 (see online) and Example.lng (see online) file. Interesting note (source): Download: AutoIt Files Fork me on Github

ResAU3Text-Extractor.ico Pic unrelated :)A simple example of translating a string: #include 'LibAU3Text.au3' _AU3Text_BindTextSection('MESSAGES', 'nl') ; Set translations to dutch. ; ... Create a GUI. ; Translate a string: GUICtrlCreateLabel(_AU3Text('The flying dutchman flies again.', 'FLYING_DUTCHMAN'), -1, -1) ; De vliegende hollander vliegt alweer. ; Translate a string with plural variants: GUICtrlCreateLabel(StringFormat(_AU3Text_Plural('Deleted %i file.', 2, 'DELETED_FILES'), 2), -1, -1) ; 2 bestanden verwijdert. ; Using shorthand functions: GUICtrlCreateLabel(_('The flying dutchman flies again.', 'FLYING_DUTCHMAN'), -1, -1) GUICtrlCreateLabel(StringFormat(_P('Deleted %i file.', 2, 'DELETED_FILES'), 2), -1, -1) ; Let AU3Text generate the INI keys, keys are MD5 hashes of the messages. GUICtrlCreateLabel(_('The flying dutchman flies again.'), -1, -1) GUICtrlCreateLabel(StringFormat(_P('Deleted %i file.', 2), 2), -1, -1) ; ...The UDF: AU3Text.zip If you encounter any bugs or have any suggestions, requests or improvements, then please let me know. Happy coding! edit 1: zip added edit 2: If you compiled AU3Text-Extractor and want to test it, run it against AU3Text-Demo like this: AU3Text-Extractor.exe Au3Text-Demo.au3 beThis will create AU3Text-Demo.be.lng in the I18n directory.
