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)

Is there also an option to import old XML files created with Deaderpool's STBL editor? So you can use old translations?

Hi, I'm sending feedback again.
1. The package and XML of simplified Chinese cannot be loaded directly
2. I need to translate in multiple languages, it is invalid to switch the language settings in the process. but at present, I can reopen this tool to solve the problem.
3. If possible, I hope to have an editing or saving option for multilingual translations

I seem to talk a little too much,hope you will not feel unhappy. I just think this tool is really good, easy and has potential.
I made a Chinese tutorial for this tool. I hope it will be convenient for more people

а вот это для меню сюрприз ( в самой программе разумеется никаких троянов нет.. написана она на python и qt, и собрана в exe с помощью pyinstaller.. да, там есть функционал подключения к удаленным ресурсам, поскольку есть возможность перевода с помощью yandex.translator (в альфе скрытая функция, но если в config.ini указать ключ, то она появится).. может из-за этого и ругается аваст..

1. can you put a package or XML that doesn't load somewhere?

if there is a multilanguage translation, it will not be soon ( but I will consider your request, and may be able to come up with a way to do it quickly and easily

I don't know why, but when I do the translation from English to German, the group is not set correctly.

For WickedWhims (I am the German translator) the German translation is in group 0x80000000 but your tool always stores the translation in group 0x00000000. This ensures that the translation is not taken.

in wickedwhims, all stbl records have a group of 0x00000000.. why there should be something else - I don't know..

After a particular patch, a lot of modders moved from 0x80000000 to 0x00000000 when that patch of the game broke all translation files from appearing in the game and the only solution was to change the group id. Anybody who didn't react had the text missing for a while and it got fixed later after another patch which reverted that change. From that point on, I'm using the zero group.

Here's a post about it happening: https://simsvip.com/2019/04/18/the-...ril-16th-patch/
