Hi there

My name is Jason Johnston and I am giving technical assistance to Hannah Sarvasy of the Australian National University in her project to provide localized software for the Nungon people of Papua New Guinea.

Nungon is a tribal language spoken by about 2,000 people in the Morobe province of PNG. The Nungon Localization Project aims to provide a range of software, including a graphical user interface (Classic Shell) and a text editor (Notepad++) in the Nungon language.

For Classic Shell, we are interested in doing a Level 1 localization for now. We have downloaded the three L10N.ini files and plan to provide translations for the strings in them during a field trip to Nungon territory next month (April). We understand that we would then send a text file (or 3 text files?) containing the translated strings to Ivo at this forum, who would create a DLL for us. I am a little unclear as to what would happen then.

I would just like confirmation that our understanding of the procedure is correct. Also, I wanted to advise that it is unlikely that the Nungon localization files would be of any great interest to anyone outside the Nungon community (Nungon being such a "small" language, albeit of vital importance to its speakers). So we don't imagine there would be much general demand for the Nungon-localized DLL - but of course we would be totally happy for it to be generally available. Is there likely to be any problem with localizing such a "small" language?

We look forward to working with you!

Yes, translate the required text without any formatting errors, for your level of localization and send it to Ivo. The DLL once published can be downloaded and copied to the folder: C:\ProgramData\ClassicShell\Languages.

Then you need to sign out of your Windows user account and login again, and you will be able to pick that language from the Language tab of Settings.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
