Notes:
If the program gives you an error of a missing file try to donwload this file: MPTF.exe (894 Kb). It's a self-extracting RAR compressed file which contains msvbvm60.dll, Richtx32.ocx and comctl32.ocx. (at least) These files are requiered in order the program can work.



Original post:
I've just made a program to help to translate Plus! I know that someone tried to do one program like this, but I think he didn't make it.

The program should be able to work with Unicode, but atm characters from complex languages like Japanesse aren't show correctly (I don't know if my computer doesn't show them well or if I did something wrong; perhaps this second reason :S). All other Unicode-related things, like work with Unicode or ANSI Lang_*.ini files are supposed to work fine :)

The program is very easy to use and you can select english or spanish interface. I would like you to try and test the program and tell me how it does it work. I've witten it in VB6 so you'll probably need these files: msvbvm60.dll and mscomctl.ocx. If you don't have them and if the admins/mods allow me, I can upload them (about 993 Kb compressed).

One last thing: If you try to open Lang_*.ini files saved in Unicode format, please, use Windows NT/2K/XP. Windows 9x/Me doesn't handle Unicode then you won't get the result you want.

Thank you very much.

I know. I've spent all the day today trying to correct this, but i couldnt do many things :( still trying...
The main problem i have now is how to handle unicode strings and display them in a control. I get the unicode string well but when i assign it to the text box, a strange text is displayed, instead of the right string

Well Choli...I don't think VB6 is unicode-compatible...Could you tell me how you accomplish that? Every time I want to make unicode-comptible programs I have to use crappy VB .Net ...:\

Well, this is the 1st time i'm trying to make an unicode-compatible program, and if you're right i won't be able to do that in VB6 (and i don't like VB.NET:() VB6 has functions to convert string from & to unicode, and i'm using the api GetPrivateProfileStringW which is supposed to work with unicode.... Also, if i copy-paste a Traditional Chinese character from word to my control i can see it well but i can't do that in the code (some thing like text4.text=unicode_string)

Anyway, i'll keep trying

Well, Choli, just try to look for other unicode-compatible APIs to do the Text property accessing...maybe SetWindowTextW can do that...I don't know, I'm not very good at API...:S
Just a suggestion:D

Wdz was going to do a php script for this, but abandoned the idea.

Very good program, but it doesn't show international characters correctly (as it was reported before) -i.e. ñ, á é í ó ú, etc.

* Choli is happy :)
Good news: I've also tried SetWindowTextW, Mnjul, but didn't work. Thanks anyway. The problem was with the control. Now, i'll use a RichTextBox that shows well all unicode chars if you manage well it, so i've had to learn RTF specifications (:wall::-@:blah:). I think the program will be finished tomorrow and will handle "unicode" laguages ok (maybe right-to-left ones not very well, but give time to the time). Now it's 3:20am here & yesterday I slept less than 6 hours, so i'm going to bed....:zzz:
