Localtransformer supports Symbian localization. Localtransformer localizes Symbian .loc and .rls files.
It is possible to localize Symbian applications using resource source files (.rss files).
The resource files should be listed in the .mmp file. The key point is to avoid hard coding any strings in the .rss file.
After the next compilation, you'll have two binary resource files: an .rsc file in English, and .r02 file, in German.The builder compiles the resource file once for each language code. On each compilation it defines a different preprocessor definition according of the following pattern: LANGUAGE_xx, where xx is the language code as specified in the .MMP file.
It is also necessary to modify the .pkg file so that it will let the user install your application in his desired language.
Removal of UTF-8 Header
Please also note that the .rls and .loc files will not work if the files contain a UTF-8 header. Localtransformer
builds localized files without the UTF-8 and they will work.Other applications such as Notepad though will add
a UTF-8 header by default on save
