Installation - Languages page
The Tarma QuickInstall 2 Installation - Languages page has been renamed to Languages in InstallMate. Its purpose has remained the same; it defines the languages for the installer. However, there are also some important differences:
|Item||Tarma QuickInstall 2||InstallMate|
|Resource DLLs||Prebuilt resource DLLs for each language, supplied by Tarma Software Research.||Resources are generated on-the-fly when you build an installer.|
|Additional languages||No additional languages available, unless you build your own resource DLL.||You can add your own languages and translations for any language supported by Windows.|
|Localizable items||No localization possible beyond the predefined resources in the DLLs.||Virtually any user-visible text (and many that are not visible to the user) can be localized in the project itself.|
|Language selection||Installer languages are selected on the Installation - Languages page.||Installer languages are selected for each package separately on the Project overview project page.|
InstallMate includes predefined translations for a number of commonly used languages, but your are no longer restricted to these languages. Furthermore, you can modify all translations to your own taste.
