INI files are simple text files with a basic structure. The basic element contained in an INI file is the parameter. Every parameter has a name and a value, delimited by an equals sign (=). The name appears to the left of the equals sign.

Parameters may be grouped into arbitrarily named sections. The section name appears on a line by itself, in square brackets ([ and ]). All parameters after the section declaration are associated with that section.

For example:


; main menu
32825="Add DVD..."

Another example:

; ClipEffect DLL string resource
1="Video Clipping - %s"

You only need to translate the values after the equals sign (=). Please keep the section name and the ID being unchanged.
