RMPrepUSB supports different languages by loading the labels text and help text from language.ini files (e.g. German.ini) which are located in the LANG subfolder. These files are standard text files and they can be easily changed just by using NotePad.
How to make your own new Language.ini file
If you want to make a new language file, then use the latest Beta version of English.ini as your template.
If you need to use a Unicode characters set, make sure you save the file as 'Unicode' in Notepad.
Choose the correct LCID, HelpFontCharset and HelpFontName for your language - see Fonts, CharSets and LCIDs.rtf located in the LANG folder for help with choosing the correct LCID/CharSet values.
Change the ButtonFontSize, LabelFontSize, HelpFontSize and HelpFontBold values as required (usually 8 or 10 and HelpFontBold=false).
Name the file as (mylanguage.ini). Note that you can use the English name for the language or your own languages name, but the name must be a standard ASCII name - e.g. you can have a file name of German.ini or Deutsch.ini but not 简体中文语言文件.ini.
Note that not all English text strings can be translated as RMPrepUSB does not support this. Also, error messages and user prompts are always in English.
How to change an existing Language.ini file

If you cannot see the words that you want to change, it may be because the entry has not been added to that language.ini file yet - so look at the English.ini file for the correct entry and copy the relevant English text line into your language file.
