Hi all,

Since today it's possible to provide custom translations of the names of
the keys on Windows. This is useful because Windows gets the name of the
key from the keyboard layout and, in some cases, they don't match properly.

For example, Catalan users don't have a proper keyboard layout (well, they
do have one but it's just an alias for the Spanish keyboard) so if a user
uses the Spanish or French keyboard, the name of the keys in the UI will be
in Spanish or French, but never in Catalan. I am sure other languages have
this problem too.

So it's now possible to provide custom names for keys for Windows using the
same way we do for Linux. The file to modify is the following one and the
process is exactly the same:

If you want to implement this, but you are not a developer, just send me
the name of the keys with its translation and I will apply the changes

Thanks and Happy 2013 to everybody!
