Do it like most applications do. Create a language file for every language you want to support containging all text and read the file on startup or when the user changes the language.

I'm sure you'll find some examples on the forum if you search for "multilingual" etc.

One program that I can think of off the top of my head is SciteJump from guiness, you could look at the source of it to see how he's doing it and go from there.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

The is multi-lingual too. You can set the length of the GUI controls depending on the language. Some languages need more space as others for the same content.
