How to Create a Translation
  1. Install MaxLauncher.
  2. Open File Explorer and navigate to C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\MaxLauncher.
  3. Under the Language folder, copy English.xaml.sample to a new file <language_name>.xaml (eg. German.xaml)
  4. Open <language_name>.xaml using Notepad or a text editor. Important: the editor must have the ability to save in UTF-8 format.
  5. Translate the text between the xml tags only. For example ...

    English:
    <sys:String x:Key="MainMenu_File">_File</sys:String>

    French:
    <sys:String x:Key="MainMenu_File">_Fichier</sys:String>
    • To underlining a character(accelerator key), precede the letter with an underscore ('_').
    • Numbers inside curly brackets (eg. {0}, {1}, etc.) will be replaced with a value. The value can be anything depending on the text. Do not delete them, just move them to the appropriate location in the translated text/sentence.
