Thread: English program version instead of German?

  1. #1

    Default English program version instead of German?

    Hi! After the purchase I got the German program version without being asked. Currently I would prefer to use the English version of NOF2015. How can I switch to the English language version?

    2015 comes in German and English in the same product.

    You "should" be able to use windows add/remove software to delete Fusion 2015, then reinstall it selecting German as the language during the installer.

    Sorry, this possibly was a misunderstanding...

    Is there no Strikethrough formatting?

    Not really, I'm just not sure that uninstalling the German version will give you the option to install in English is all. You may need to clean the registry of 2015 in order to get that option on a re-install. I've never done it myself.

    Did it work for you?

    Default German UI resources

    <Program Files (x86)>\NetObjects\NetObjects Fusion 2015\NetObjects System\dede\resource.dll seems to contain the German UI:

    I don't understand why the installer does not install the English resource.dll as well, so a user could simply switch between languages.

    AFAIR, the language selection in the setup program was only a choice for the installer language?

    Default Reinstalled

    WOW! After uninstalling and reinstalling NOF2015 by selecting the language for the installer this time it installed the English program version!

    Click image for larger version.

    This does not comply with standard installer procedures. Usually this only selects the language for the setup program UI.

    The selection for the language of the PROGRAM UI should appear here instead:

    In effect, the folder
    <Program Files (x86)>\NetObjects\NetObjects Fusion 2015\NetObjects System\dede\
    has now been replaced with the folder
    <Program Files (x86)>\NetObjects\NetObjects Fusion 2015\NetObjects System\enus\
    which contains the resource.dll for the English program UI.

    Default Reasons for using the English UI

    Why would a native German want to choose the English UI instead of the German UI? There could be several reasons:

    • Bad quality of the German translation
    • For some IT-specific terms there are no adequate German translations which in many cases leads to misunderstandings
    • There simply is no German translation

    Right now I'm already calm. Thanks for the advice, Barbara!
