    An often requested feature is to have HighC in other languages. This raises a few issues: first, I can't translate in other languages than French, and second, translations of the documentation have to be kept in sync with the evolution of the software, which is a known management nightmare.

    Starting with version 2.6, I will propose a French localization of the software, without its documentation. If your system is in French, you will immediately have the interface in French. This suffers some drawback: now, you'll still have the documentation in English that will be even less usable.

    If you would like a similar version of HighC in your own language (German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanase...), You may want to do it yourself using the french package as an example. This is not very long (2-3 hours at most), and not too difficult. Here are the instructions:

    1) download the attached file "highc2.6_fr.zip" and unpack it. There are 13 files in a deeply nested hierarchy. Be careful to always preserve the directory structure!
    2) rename each file from "Resources_fr.java" to Resources_XX.java" where XX is your language's ISO code (de for German, nl for Dutch, en for English, ja for Japanese, pt for Portuguese, es for Spanish...)
    3) open each of the file with a text editor (wordpad on windows, don't use notepad; textedit on a Mac) and replace the French phrases with equivalent phrases in your own language. Note that the english phrases serve as reference and should *not* be translated!
    4) Once it's done, pack the archive again as a zip file and post it here. It will be integrated in the next release!

    HighC is now fully translated in French, and the interface is available in Spanish.

    Thanks to José Antonio Romero, teacher at the Conservatory of Music from Segovia, this user's manual in spanish is also available. It will be placed in the application at the next release. Enjoy!
