Version 4 is the biggest upgrade to BibleDatabase yet. This version (4.0.3) is a FINAL RELEASE version. Although you will not notice much difference from previous versions the main difference is in the addition of language packs.

How it works

All (if not in this version then in the next) Messages have been removed from the software and placed in external Message files. The messages include

Message boxes,
Menu Items,
Buttons,
Text Boxes.

By placing these text items in a separate file it is now possible for the first time for BibleDatabase to be truly Multi-Lingual

Supplied with this version are the language files: ENGLISH SWEDISH, INDONESIAN, GERMAN and PORTUGUESE.

Naming conventions

You will find the language files in the msg Directory under BibleDatabase
On first use bibledatabase defaults to the following two language files:

ENGLISH_FRM.mes and ENGLISH_STD.mes

To change to another language, you do this by clicking Tools -> Language Editor. Select the language you want and then click SET AS DEFAULT. If the language modules exist, BibleDatabase will close to re-initialize itself with the new language.

If the language modules do NOT exist, BibleDatabase will change the Books displayed of the Bible ONLY.

PLEASE HELP

If you create a set of language modules please also translate the file ENGLISH_FavVerses.txt as well as ENGLISH_LicenceAgreement.txt. For download/upload/use instructions please see http://bibleforums.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1878


All language files should be edited with a standard TEXT EDITOR and NOT a word processor or they will not work.
