When you create your Lingo project, you have the option to add a language skin to your project. This generates a language skin file (LanguageSkin.fllng) containing several terms used in different Flare skins (e.g., "Table of Contents," "Glossary," "Home"). Translators can open the language skin file to translate these terms. This is especially useful if there are custom terms in the Flare skin and they need to be translated to match the custom interface.
When you export the project back to Flare, the language skin can be seen by opening the Project Organizer, then selecting the Advanced folder. Additional changes can be made to the language skin in Flare, if necessary. When the output is generated, the translations in the language skin replace Flare's default translations for interface elements.
- Select File > New Project. The Start New Project Wizard opens.
- Proceed through the wizard until you get to the Select Flare project settings page (the location of this page in the wizard varies slightly depending on your project creation method).
See Creating New Projects.
- At the bottom of the dialog, select the check box next to Create language skin.
- Click Next (to continue the wizard) or Finish. A language skin project is added to your project.
Note: You can only add language skins to a project if there are not language skins already in the source Flare project. If the source Flare project already includes one or more language skins, they will be added to the Lingo project and can be translated.
Note: If your project's target language has an available spell check dictionary, some translations will be pre-populated when you create your language skin. The available translations vary depending on the language you are using. Languages with an available spell check dictionary are displayed in bold when you select a language during project creation.
