Today I released 0.99 prebeta 4, which is mainly a service release of 0.99 prebeta 3. Some bugs are fixed (e.g. Accurate Rip info in the log) and some of the external programs are updated (Accurate Rip, FLAC, WM Encoding Script).
I wanted to have this version out before I start the work on the next release which will have larger improvements. Of course, the numerous changes that are planned for the next version will take some time, so don’t expect any new version until mid of the year…
Further I have included a desktop and quick launch bar icon in the installer which link to eBay. As the advertisements on the homepage dropped by a great amount over the last year, I decided to try to go this way. I hope that you can understand my decision! Anyway, the icons are created only on the installation of EAC and their installation can be easily prevented by deselecting the eBay component within the EAC installer. The EAC application itself is still completely free from advertisement or spyware (and will be)!
I hope that you will like the new version nevertheless!

If your language is not yet assigned to be translated and you want to do the work, please write to gregg [at] cdrinfo [dot] pl. To do the translations well, you should have good knowledge of your own and of the English language, and have a look at the English resource file that comes with EAC. This file is 140 kB in size, and will take quite some time to translate! Be absolutely sure, that you really want to do this before mailing me!

For new translations you will also need to generate the language code. There’s a tool below which serves that purpose, but for it to work as expected, your system language must be set to the language you are translating to. The program generates two numbers (which should be put into the strings which identifiers are shown there) – first of them is the actual language code, while the second is a checksum.

To aid in the translation, you can download the translation tool (courtesy of David Rogard). It automates the process of finding the strings to be translated in the original file and finds the appropriate place in the destination file. It can also automatically download the latest source file from the EAC server. You can find more information about the tool here.

Of course, there might be problems trying to translate EAC using this resource file. Depending on your language there might be different character sets, that will not be displayed correctly, or your language is written from right to left, etc. If it is not possible this way, please contact me to see if it can be changed (slightly) to make translation into such a language possible.

Please do not ask the authors for the language files, they will be published here for download as soon as they are finished. Only contact the authors for errors in the translation or similar issues.

List of Translations

Most languages are already included in the EAC installer. The following translations are either newer versions or for some reason haven’t been included in EAC distribution.
Please note that currently there are 3 language files – 1 EAC main translation and 2 for plugins (freedb, gd3) and they need to be put in appropriate folders in the EAC installation folder.
