+1 karma for the update.. :-)

There are some InDesign files lying around in your room. Time to start working on them ;-)

I know... I haven't had time to touch the full manual for 2 months now... It's so depressing... -_-'

Just a quick update regarding the French version of the full manual.

I'm only almost through the chapter 4. I don't know how 600 managed to create this thing of beauty while having a full time job... It's just insane...

Anyways, it's not forgotten, it's just soooooooooooooooooooooo sloooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww... :(

I've never really understood why people translate from English into other languages. I mean, English is the common tongue of all mankind after all. Heck, the whole universe. Even the almost all of the aliens in the original Star Trek spoke English!!!! So, why even bother to translate it into something else? If they aren't willing to learn English, do they even deserve to use this glorious program called ComicRack?

2 words : user reachability

Any software that only allows English is doomed to fail. Contrary to popular belief, English isn't the most spoken language on our little piece of rock that is Earth and people from countries that don't use English as a mother-tongue, most of the time, only speak/understand a few words of it. They're far from being fluent enough to use it to its full power.

Since the program allows localization packages (which changes the language of CR), why not localize the manual as well ? This way, even more people can use this software as they please.

In summary, the more users u can reach, the faster the user base of the software will grow, the more revenues from donations/ads will be gained. It's a basic business model for any free service that uses nothing more than word of mouth to reach more people. Even if the main goal of cYo with CR isn't making money, it at least is NOT losing any.

On that bombshell, I'm going back to my useless localization :p

P.S.: I recognize irony when I see it so don't be alarmed, I won't send a whole flock of tweety birds beacking at your windows at night :laugh:

edit : BTW, I forgot to mention that I've been doing the FR loc version of CR for almost 5 years now and that it's the most downloaded language pack of all (more than Spanish which is unusual) so that must mean I'm doing something right :P

From what I've read, every species speaks it's own language. The universal translator and the every popular Babel Fish converted it to English for the rest of us to understand. To me there are only two correct ways to approach someone new.
