to put strings into a text files is not the main problem for me.
i should reserve enough space on screen for them, and should resize all "windows" to fit them. A window, winapi-talking, is also a button and almost everything on the screen.

To realign and resize all things programmatically is too boring for me, i think.
I shall do it manually, and it takes a lot of time anyway.

Is a .txt file enough for a russian translation?

That will be my problem to write everything as short as possible

IMHO you don't need to do it.

Certainly.

You may include something like &rq.lng and take all strings from it. So user will be able to change language by himself. Or you may make a binary file and provide me :) with an algorithm of editing it.

I want a Turkish translation. :)  I can do the translation.

BTW, if you GPL it, (or give the source in some other way) I can do the boring job of putting every string into variables, etc.

rejetto, what about making some text files for translating &rq interface into another language (Italian, Russian for example). And you can either make it possible for user to edit them, or not.

I will sure be able to translate anything into russian (and ukrainian)
