Quick 'n Easy Web Builder uses message catalogs to support multiple languages for its user interface.

The available translations were kindly provided by other users, they are provided "AS IS"

There are two kinds of message catalogs: source catalogs which are text files with extension .po and binary catalogs which are created from the source ones and have the extension .mo.
Only the binary files (.mo) are needed during program execution.

Step 1:
Download the source catalog here: ...
(updated for version 6)

Step 2:
Download poedit:
Poedit is a tool that will help you translate the message catalog and compile it into a .mo file.
It will automatically create the .mo file when you save the project.
Make sure you select the correct langauge and country in Menu->Catalog->Settings!

Step 3:
Once you have translated the file it must be placed in the correct folder of the applciation.
Each language has its own folder. For example, the French translation should be placed in the folder 'fr', the German translation in 'de' etc.

Language Folders:
Afrikaans (af)
Albanian (sq)
Arabic (ar)
Basque (eu)
Catalan (ca)
Chinese (zh_CN)
Chinese (zh_TW)
Czech (cs)
Danish (da)
Dutch (nl)
Finnish (fi)
French (fr)
Galician (gl_ES)
German (de)
Greek (el)
Hindi (hi)
Hungarian (hu)
Indonesian (id)
Italian (it)
Japanese (ja)
Korean (ko_KR)
Latvian (lv)
Lithuanian (lt)
Malay (ms)
Norwegian Bokmal (nb)
Polish (pl)
Portuguese (pt)
Portuguese (pt_BR)
Romanian (ro)
Russian (ru)
Slovak (sk)
Slovenian (sl)
Spanish (es)
Swedish (sv)
Turkish (tr)
Ukrainian (uk)
Vietnamese (vi)

Now copy the compiled .mo file the the correct folder. In the Windows and Linux version you can directly access the folders.
In the Mac version you will have to open the 'Package' -> Right click the application and select 'Show package content'. Then browse to Contents->Resources and create the new folder to copy the .mo file to.
The .mo file must have the same name as the application. So on the Mac it will be called 'Quick 'n Easy Web', on Windows and Linux ''

You can also translate the help (PDF), the translated file should also be placed in the specific language folder and msut have the same name as the applciation (eg 'Quick 'n Easy Web Builder.pdf', on Windows and Linux 'qnewb.pdf')

The following languages have been partly translated and it would be great if someone could help finish these translations:
Bulgarian: ...
Danish: ...
Spanish: ...
French: ...
German: ...
Hungarian: ...
Italian: ...
Polish: ...
Portuguese: ...
Russian: ...
Swedish: ...

Please send your translations to so we can include them in the next version of Quick 'n Easy Web Builder.
