Avogadro in Spanish for Windows

Hi all,

This is a recurrent problem for Windows users: Windows does not know i18n and, consequently, only english menus are available.
Since the Windows version is not compiled with internationalization support, there are two solutions :

  1. compile the .po files from Launchpad: they will not correspond to those of the current Avogadro binaries, requires Qt deveopment
    tools installed;
  2. obtain the .qm files from a friend using a Mac or Linux (same version, 32 or 64 bits) and install them under
    C:\Program Files\Avogadro\share\avogadro\i18n.

If not other solution exists, this should be mentioned in the FAQS.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Louis

Hello, my name is Lucas, I’m from Argentina and study Biology. Yesterday I discover Avogadro but I can’t select or put the spanish lenguage in Windows. Can you guide me? I downloaded the .po and .mo files from Launchpad but how do the ‘install’?
Sorry for the bad english and thanks for the help!

We should add this to the release notes, I used to make the copy when
making a Windows release but think I forgot the last few times. I will
try to do this for the next release, we never got the tools to work in
the build system on Windows correctly but I can always revisit that
too.

Thanks for reporting this, an FAQ entry would be reasonable but I will
try to improve the Windows i18n support in the next bug fix release.
