Writing a translation file to convert QGene's user interface to your favorite language

A feature of QGene that allows its customization is internationalizability. If you want a French, Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, or Indonesian version of QGene you need only write a translation file for your favorite language.The current mechanism for this is simply for us to provide to you, the translator, all the text shown in any QGene display, with instructions for replacing the English .ini files with those you will produce. You will then translate the text into your target language, and we will work to see that everything goes smoothly.
