XYplorer 12.00 has been released on 28-Jan-2013. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
It's two simple steps to have XYplorer in your language:
Language files for a growing number of languages are available for download on this web page: https://www.xyplorer.com/languages.php Download the ZIP archive for the language you need (e.g. "French.zip") and extract the contained LNG file (e.g. "French.lng") into XYplorer's application folder or application data folder.
Choose Select Language... from the Help menu to load the language (e.g. "French.lng") into the running application. No restart required.
If you have downloaded different LNG files you can switch languages on the fly. Again, no restart required.
To quickly go back to English simply tick Back to English in the same menu (this command will always stay in English). Untick Back to English to go back to the loaded language. Again, no restart required.
Just to show off another language, here is XYplorer in Italian:
Finally, here is the first section of the configuration dialog in all new languages available to date (Click to zoom):
Say you meet a filename where you want to learn more about the characters. Easy: You select the file, open the Info Panel (F12), then right-click the bolded filename in the Properties tab, and get a small context menu:
This gives you the Character Table of this filename, a vertical list of the characters and their unicode ordinals in decimal and hexadecimal, and their utf8 sequences:
Hovering the bolded filename will pop a tooltip showing the filename converted to ASCII, including transliterations of special characters from German, Scandinavian languages, and Turkish, and romanization of Cyrillic characters.
Last not least you can convert the filename to ASCII including all the transliterations mentioned above. The new command Convert to ASCII in menu File | Rename Special does it for all selected files.
