    Hi everyone,

    there is a new way to create the localizator class csv file and it is as easy now as it could never be in the past. Just watch the following video:


    In order to download it as excel sheet (xlsx) you will have to press in Google Sheet
    Ctrl+A > Copy > Select A1 > Paste special only values
    And then download because if you download it directly it downloads also the formulas and excel gets confused.


    In order to correct the text in Greek after you download the csv open it with notepad > Save as > (select [Unicode] as encoding)

    Edit: I just saw that I forgot the key column
    Edit 2: Also the first language in all translated cells must be "$A$2"

    Hi hatzisn,

    Very good idea and thanks for it.
    I use google translate for our local language, see screen shots,



    and was going to ask "How can I find the 'language code' i.e. second row values for 'Hindi' say ?" BUT I found it googling :)



    It may help members.

    Please also note that for all Unicode written languages including Hindi it is valid what is written for Greek.

    I added a useful comment in the first message for those who wish to download the xlsx type.
