Hi Jamie,versionInfo.py becomes hard, because we really have to ask, how is NVDA ever going to be packaged.
If NVDA is going to be packaged in different languages, as in "click here to download the Japanese version of NVDA" then it makes sence to translate versionInfo.py. But, if its more like how it is now "NVDA supports blablabla languages", then I'd be tempted to keep versionInfo.py as it is.
There are also things like the single letter navigation keys in the virtualBuffers... h for heading, p for paragraph etc, it is sort of hard to translate those. The only way would be to have swappable keymaps for virtualBuffers as well, but you'd have to pick them up by language this time, rather than by keyboard layout.
I guess all we can do as developers is mark any possible strings that are translatable, but if there was a large demand for NVDA in a certain language, then someone who is proficient in Python could hack and package a specific version for that language.

Hi Mick, Michael Curran wrote:I am fine with changing 'NonVisual Desktop Access' to 'NVDA' for both the window name and the start message. I guess we all call it NVDA so, I suppose that is what it should be called.I'd still include the full name in the about message, though: NVDA Nonvisual Desktop Access Not sure how we'd do that in translation. Maybe: NVDA Nonvisual Desktop Access (insert translation here) Btw, should the strings in versionInfo.py be marked for translation?
