Translation Toolkit for LabVIEW

To localize front panels of LabVIEW programs, you need to translate all front panel strings. To use “Export VI Strings” and “Import VI Strings” has many disadvantages:

The “translate.vi” allows you to localize your front panel with none(!) of the disadvantages listed above!

How to use:

How it works:  

It extracts and searches for the front panel strings and RTM items (dependent on the translation options and menubar parameters) in the translation file (a tabulator delimited spreadsheet file of strings, each line contains a string to translate and each column contains a different language) and replaces them with the strings of another column of this file (dependent on the language index parameter).
Lines in the translation file beginning with // (double slash) are ignored and can be used as comment lines to insert version information etc. into the translation file. See “string.txt” as an example for a translation file.
The translation file can be a different one for each VI or the same for all (or some) of them, dependent on the translation file parameter.
If you add front panel objects to your VI, all new strings will be appended to the translation file automatically, after you start the VI the next time. Afterwards you need only add the translation(s) of the new string(s) to the translation file
