In order to support localization requirements, xpdrainage includes a Translation Administrator for distributors and power users who wish to use a different language in the software. It is designed to produce the Translations.xml file, which is a type of dictionary for the application consisting of key-value pairs. A key is given in English with a corresponding translated value, which then replaces the English key and appears in the application.
Note that Translation Administrator is an optional xpdrainage feature that can be selected from the "Custom Install" menu during the initial installation process, or by Install Translation from the Windows Control Panel.

Update an Existing File:
If a Translation file has been previously created, this can be used as a starting point. This is particularly useful when updating a translation to suit a new release.
When complete, save the .xml file using the Save option, and follow the Using Translations process to test the file's contents.
To make this process easier you can use the 'Show/Hide Translated values' option, indicated by a light bulb on the toolbar. This will hide the already translated values, making it easier to see what is missing on the original file.
