About a week ago I was offered help to translate logview4net to Russian. The offer came from a gentleman owning an open sourced project for translating .NET applications.
Of course I was thrilled by the offer. I had really thought about localizing it, but since English and Swedish is all I know I haven’t put it on top of my to do list. Most, if not all, Swedish users of logview4net are probably happy using it in English.
Writing the previous post got me thinking:
I would like to have an open sourced free hosted translation service available. It should offer procedures and tools for localizing .NET applications. A developer should be able to upload a bunch of strings and some context describing text so that volunteering individuals could translate them online. It could be set up so that you got one string translated in return for translating another string.
Today a made a new release of logview4net.
I got an error report from a user who had set up a UDP logger with log4net and got loads of weird characters in logview4net. I had hard coded Unicode and log4net was sending something else.
This led me to add a drop down list with available encoders to the Udp Listener. I might do the same for the file listeners in the near future.
