Language Files

Pivot Animator supports multiple languages that determine how captions and messages are displayed within the program.
  The language can be set from the options window.

Creating Language Files

If you are fluent in English and another language and would like to translate Pivot to that language then you can create your own language file for Pivot. You can then send the language file to others who speak that language to make it easier for them to use Pivot.
The language files can be found in a folder called 'languages' in the location that the Pivot program was installed to. This is normally in C:\Program Files\Pivot Animator\languages.
Open the English.ini file and read the instructions at the top of the file. Translate all text to the right of an '=' sign and save as a new INI file with the name of your language. Be careful when translating text with a name to the left of the '=' ending in 'Cap' so that you do not increase the length of the text too much.
You can add keyboard shortcuts to buttons by adding an '&' character in-front of the letter you want to make the shortcut. The button caption will then appear with that letter underlined in the program (e.g. 'Add &Figure' becomes 'Add Figure'). Make sure that there are no shortcut conflicts by making sure that there are no two buttons with the same shortcut in the same window.
After translating the file, test it in Pivot making sure you check all windows.
If you create a language file then please send it to so that it can be included in future Pivot Animator releases.
