With great horror I had to discover that most localized rc files of the ToolkitPro (e.g. Source/Controls/res/resource_de.rc) contain absurd translation errors - probably due to the use of bad AI-based translation tools. As in the attached example for "lighter" = "heller" - the German translation here is a Zippo, that is indeed a Lighter (the subject). Other wrong translations are e.g. "near by" / "nah dran" for "Close" (the window) or "Speisekarte" for "Menu".

Seeing these distorting translations among my users irritates me very much. 

Maybe my hint can help the community to prevent this confontation. Maybe even someone from Codejock Software reads my contribution here. I would be happy to help with the translation, if that should be necessary. But after paying many dollars for the software over many years, I am a bit disappointed by the superficiality.

Best regards, KR



or even funnier:

Hi,

I've seen the same kind of errors on several words in different languages (French, German, Japanese...)

Many single words like :
  • Close
  • Ok
  • Lighter
  • Cancel
  • Paste
  • Type
  • Help

Mix between "files" and "folders"
There is a mixture of verbs in infinitive form and second person.

Most of the translation where more accurate before.

Same problem with Dutch (NL) in Controls/Res

"Groente" means vegetables
76  LTEXT           "Groente:",XTP_IDC_TXT_GREEN,83,125,23,8
->  LTEXT           "Groen:",XTP_IDC_TXT_GREEN,83,125,23,8

"Sparen" means to save money in the bank
112 PUSHBUTTON      "Sparen",XTP_IDC_BTN_SAVE,233,41,62,14
->  PUSHBUTTON      "Opslaan",XTP_IDC_BTN_SAVE,233,41,62,14

"Snee" means slice, like in a slice of bread
136 MENUITEM "Snee",
->  MENUITEM "Knippen",

'Stroming" means flow of water
236 XTP_IDS_CURRENT          "Stroming"
->  XTP_IDS_CURRENT          "Huidig"

"Van toepassing zijn" is completely grammatically wrong
249 XTP_IDS_TASK_APPLY        "Van toepassing zijn"
->  XTP_IDS_TASK_APPLY        "Toepassen"

"Aansteker" is lighter, as in Zippo
267 XTP_IDS_LIGHTER            "Aansteker"
->  XTP_IDS_LIGHTER            "Lichter"

I hope you can fix this, now I have to do it manually each time (not too often though with the current release frequency!)
