How to create a new language pack
All Kymoto Solutions applications use a standard interface which allows our applications to be fully translated*. Before you can begin creating a new translation you will need to download the required tool and core language file for the application you would like to created the translation for.
* Some items can not be translated internally, these items are controlled by the underlying O/S and will only show in the selected language.
