Translations and Localisation
The BaseElements plugin includes English language function names, and also defaults to English function descriptions that appear whenever you view them in FileMaker 16 or later.
By default, they're empty as per the above. But in plugin version 4 and later these can include proper descriptions and translated versions for each language that FileMaker Pro supports.
The file to translate is called "BaseElements.strings" and can be found on GitHub here :
We've added a German as well as a Japanese language version, but could easily add others.
How can I help translate these?
The way it works is that each function has a line associated with it, and comes in three parts, separated by a pipe | character. For example :
"118" = "BE_MoveFile ( fromPath ; toPath )|File Move|Moves the file specified in the from parameter, to the location in the to parameter.\n\nNote : on Mac OS X, the Move operation only works if the source and Destination are on the same volume. To move files across volumes, use a Copy and then Delete the original.\n";
