Romanian NetBeans Platform consultancy Joseki Bold SRL has released a Romanian localization of the NetBeans Platform, which makes it easy to create NetBeans Platform applications with Romanian localization. This step also paves the way for a full NetBeans IDE localization into Romanian.

"It's something I've been meaning to do for quite some time but my consulting business has kept me busy," says Emilian Bold, Joseki Bold's owner. "So I decided to hire a translator through my company and, a month later, here it is! It even features proper Romanian diacritics, not the wrong cedilla marks some applications use."

A Romanian NetBeans Platform build is available from http://www.josekibold.ro/romanian-netbeans/ while the localization itself will be committed soon in the official NetBeans repositories.

With all do respect for the people who brought this feature I do consider it totally useless, I am romanian but UI for developers translated sounds like ****.

 

Cheers.

No... it's targeted at the users of the application, not the developers!

@Alex: you are free to make an online account on Sun's tool and suggest better translations for items that sound bad to you. See the full list here.

I'm not planning on translating more than the Platform since it's clear that Romanian developers prefer their tools in English.

This localization though should be useful to companies and individuals using the NetBeans Platform to develop their own applications as they have fewer items to localize if they intend to (also) target the Romanian market.

@Alex Make it better yourself. @Emilian As a old NetBeans supporter I give kudos for your effort.

It is true that Romanian developers prefer English, but as this translation is not targeted specifically to them, I uderstand and appreciate it. I had to move and learn Romanian for my job in Bucharest, and still struggle but not everything has to be in English and diversity has its purpose.

The graphic elements may be applied to a design, the graphic elements must be originated by means of visual art skills. These graphics are often developed by a graphic designer. Visual arts include works which are primarily visual in nature using anything from traditional media, to photography or computer generated art. Thanks a lot. Regards, guest blog posts
