Yes! While the Infront terminal is delivered in English by default, it is possible to translate the user interface into any other language supported by Microsoft Windows. This guide explains how to do it.
The Infront terminal is delivered in English by default. It can however be translated in to any other language as long as this is supported by Microsoft Windows. A file containing approximately 3000 words and phrases must be translated. Estimated time usage is 3 effective working days including testing. It is very important that the person that does the translation have a good knowledge about the financial equity markets and order entry.
In order to translate, the translator must install a program called poEdit (or similar text editor program) and translate a file called default.po.
The following procedure must be followed in order to translate the Infront terminal UI:
Make sure that the Infront terminal is installed on the PC where the translation work will be done.
Install the software poEdit [Download]
Create a folder under the Infront program folder (\program files\ontrade\) called locale\LA\LC_MESSAGES where “LA” is the code for the language. Example: for the Infront terminal translated to Italian the following catalog should be created:
Request the translation file (default.po) from us, and place it in the \LC_MESSAGES\ folder
Start the Infront terminal, go to "Menu > Tools > Advaned Settings" and choose "User Interface" select the "Language" tab. The new language name should appear. Stop the Infront terminal.
Start translating the file default.po by opening this in poEdit program (select Open and browse to the folder under Step 3). In order to check your translation, the Infront terminal can be started after you have translated some phrases and words.
