Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I don't know much English, so I used a translator to describe it. I'm sorry about that

This is a simple program for easy translation of mods for The Sims 4.

IMPORTANT
Reading the comments on various sites, it seems that many people misunderstand the essence of the program.
THIS PROGRAM DOES NOT TRANSLATE MODS AUTOMATICALLY.
The translation must be done manually.

Features:
  • The translation of mods can be saved in dictionaries, which saves you from re-translating if new versions are released.
  • Saving the translation as a separate file, or adding it directly to the mod.
  • Saving translations from multiple mods to a single file.

Usage Instructions:
  • In the settings, select the languages you plan to translate from and to.
  • Open the mod (*.package)
  • Translate.
  • Save the dictionary if you plan to edit the translation or are going to translate new versions of the mod.
  • Save the translation in a separate package or save the translation immediately in an open mod (finalization).
  • Profit.

Install Instructions:
This is a standalone application and does not require installation.

Interface languages:
- English
- Russian
- Chinese (by Tina.)

Troubleshooting:
If you are experiencing startup problems (error "ImportError: DLL load failed"), try installing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019

Additional Credits:
The idea is taken from the app xTranslator (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/134)

Built-in translation fails. The external translation (separate file) is fine. And an interesting picture is obtained. I open the translated mod via S4PE there is no built-in translation, I open it with a translator, there is a translation. How to make an inline translation? I wanted to write in Russian, the fonts on the site are not supported.
So I apologize for my poor English.

Hello, I think your mod is great. Until yesterday, it worked perfectly. But today not anymore. Whenever the program wants to load the dictionary folder, it closes again immediately. If I take the folder out, everything is ok again.

I cannot run it on Windows 10 (build 2004, 64bit, Russian language only), and there are no error messages.
Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 (x86) is installed.
What to do?

no, you can't edit the dct directly.. if you saved a dictionary for a mod and then opened a new version of it, all untranslated lines will be marked in red.. you just translate new lines and save the dictionary again..

This is an EXCELLENT program that has made things much easier for my translators and myself regarding string tables. I recommend it to everyone who wants to do sims 4 translations and recommend to other modders to direct their translators towards this program. I use also sometimes DP's STBL editor to search my string database but really this Sims 4 translator program does everything! It makes updating translations and strings so easy! It even will merge strings for you. Seriously this is a godsend, thank you so much for your work and I hope you keep developing this gem.

My future mods will not be on MTS. For mod news and support see Twitter or my mod support Discord! :)

Hi Voky!

I'm running into a weird issue where having more than 56 dictionaries causes the program to crash at start. You can see what happens in this video.

Amazing program, I've just started using it and fell in love. Much better than S4S when it comes to translating.

Sometimes when I use this program my translations (which were changed from the previous ones that I translated) won't save in the finalized packaged, am I doing something wrong?
