Sure. All settings related to the language(s) in the installer are controlled
through the file packaging/win32/gnucash.iss.in . During "make ; make
install" time, the file gnucash.iss will be created from that iss.in file,
which in turn will be used as input for the Inno Setup program that creates
In particular, the following settings will have to be added:
- For the built-in messages of the Installer, in section [Languages] (line
220), add a line
Name: "it" MessagesFile: "compiler:Languages\Italian.isl"
- For the gnucash-specific messages in the Installer, copy&paste all lines in
the [CustomMessages] section (line 232 and following) similar to the other
languages: You will have to add one line beginning
like "it.MessageNameFooBar" for each custom message and add your italian
- One line has to be added for the CodePage in line 262, like so:
- If you want to translate the "README" which is shown as last screen as well,
you have to create a file like doc/README-de.win32-bin.txt but for "it", then
add the appropriate installation rules in doc/Makefile.am, then add this file
to the gnucash.iss.in line with the MessagesFile:"... Italian.isl", line 220,
similar to the other languages.
Thanks a lot in advance!
