How do you compile BMP files with the transparancy. Prokazza compiled them with blackback ground. What steps are used to export the psd to this format?

To BillGates_XP:

Can you make TXT file (or write on board) text which are on BMPs and AVIS which i uploaded? I prefer writing russian text on board into code box



Here is link for BMPs and AVIs with russian text:

Hi all,

In order to get more insights in the steps required to translate this project I started to do one file.

accessscreen.png

I have to say, it's relatively easy to translate the IMAGES and export them to BMPs and replace those. On the other hand it's time consuming to rewrite all the dialog strings in your own language since those are not links to the strings in the file itself but to element-properties.

No I am using PSDs of 2009. In the psd files you see the complete dialog designed with images. There you see russian text layers. I open the dialog in my own language to see what the translation should be. Than I translate the text there.

Second, I open the DUTCH file in restorator and the russian moonlight one (where you see many ?????????????). There you copy the dialog to your DUTCH one and start putting the right text at the ???????? strings.

Look what i think

Your PSD files are for WinStyle 2008. 2009 look like this image and version 2009 is completly remaked...

I think you are right even though the filenames say 2009. I have looked at the PSDs for WinStyle 2009 they are far more timeconsuming to sort out and extract to BMP.

I guess It's whether you would like to translate winstyle 2008 or 2009 - we have sourcefiles of 2 different designs. I am not sure yet what I like most. The only difference is the blue background windows 7 style which I like :)

EdIT: I 've been doing some files and noticed there are many .RES files that are non-localized. So useable for any language.

What are the current activities of anyone translating this project. Maybe it's efficient to divide some of the tasks.

1. renaming PSD files with corresponding (english) filenames (most are already done but many not)

2. setting one source / one design

3. translating PSD compiling BMP with transparancy

4. adjust files with restorator (dialogs / put right strings at many "?>???>?>???????")

5. creating .RES files from the modified files with the new language and design.

This is what I would think of now, maybe some more tasks to help?

It's very overlapping if everyone is just doing many same tasks.

edit: I have the idea the provided source files are not the latest ?

I think you can make collection of russian text which is CPL files. Now i working on changing names of PSD files like 128, 129 etc... I will post renamed PSD and some other BPS which need convert to PSD for better tranlsation into other languages...

firefox users should click save as..

Now edited the psd file in such a way changing the text for everyframe is a matter of seconds. So can now quickly provide this AVI is many languages.
