Note as of 07-13-2004: with the new language format introduced in 2.6.9, releasing a new language no longer requires recompiling ABC.
Additional language files will be posted here as they are made available.
The procedure for changing languages as of 2.6.9 is as follows:
- Download a .lang file for your desired language
- Place the file in the "lang" subdirectory under the ABC directory
("C:\Program Files\ABC\lang" would be the default directory)
- Open ABC, select "Preferences" from the "Action" menu
- Click on the "Misc." tab
- Choose your langauge
- Click on "Apply"
- Close ABC
- Restart ABC
- NOTE (only necessary in version 2.6.9 -- 3.0 and above store priority as an integer value rather than a string):
If you have torrents in list, their status must be updated to reflect your new choice of language.
The easiest method it to select all torrents and click on the "Queue" icon.
(versions earlier than 2.6.9):
For language packages that are not a full install package,

download your language package, extract abc.exe, and replace your old english version of abc.exe
If you have a language file that you'd like to make available to others, please follow the following process:

With this new model, ABC will search for text strings in the following order:
