Even though English is widely accepted as the language for scientific computing, and many programs are accepted in the original version, an increasing number of people insist that programs be adapted to their tongue.
Internationalization (i18n for short) takes care of the translation part of adapting programs, which is a very large part of the problem, particularly taking into account the diverse needs of the world's languages.
Localization (l10n) is very related, and takes into account the local customs - how to write numbers, monetary systems, time representation and many other, less obvious aspects of daily life.
From version 0.7.6, linSmith can be translated to other languages, and, in fact received translations to Chinese and Spanish.
I you would like to translate the program, here are the steps to follow:
#: src/interface.c:91 msgid "Circuit" msgstr ""Translate the term after msgid, and insert the translation between the quotes after msgstr. Do leave all lines in the destination file - they are needed to make the translation, and to automatically update the files when a new version comes along.
