Hi Johnny,

Johnny Rosenberg schrieb am 10-May-20 um 14:35:
I'm playing a little with macros (my level is probably one step or two
above beginner) and making extensions out of them. I found a few
online and I got it to work.

I don't know if I'm going to share anything in the future (because I
think my extensions will fulfil anyone else's needs than my own and they
are probably poorly written anyway), but if I want to do that, there's a
minor problem: My macros interact with the user (usually me) in Swedish,
and I guess it would be a good idea to at least write an English version
for sharing with others.

However, it would be nice if the extension adapts to the user's locale
installed (and falls back to English when the user's locale is not
available, that is in most cases). Is that possible? A link to some
of some sort would be appreciated. I found nothing so far.

Perhaps start with the help

I didn't even think of that… I'll have a look there first, of course.

Seems like only custom dialogues can be translated, not text in general,
such as Print or MsgBox.
I could of course create some arrays with translations and use them
depending on which UI language is selected, but it doesn't seem to be
possible for a macro to detect that. I only found things like
ThisComponent.CharLocale.Language, but that seems to be more about the
selected language for characters, and it doesn't change when I just change
the UI language.

Kind regards

Info from might be still valid:

There had been some issues with localization of dialogs:
According to
you need at least LO version 6.4.

I currently run LibreOffice, so I'm fine, I guess.

And this issue is not yet solved:
It contains a test document.

I'll have a look at that too.

Kind regards

Thanks for replying! This should get me going.

Kind regards

Johnny Rosenberg
