    What does this feature do:
    Users from other countries can translate your software if you have language file design.

    Why would this feature be useful to be include in the tracker:

    Go international! I'm your user from Taiwan, tracker save a lot of work especially you have muti-GPUs to setup. Great work & Thank you for your hard work.

    This may be possible depending on the amount of time it would take to implement and the method in which we implement it. This may not be something you see unless we do a complete re-write of the Tracker. But lets see what Jedi says.

    I like the idea, but the problem is that this would require a LOT of work to implement. The reason for this is that to load language files EVERY string that is displayed to the user in English would need to be redesigned to load a translation of that string from a database. (if one is found)

    I will keep this in mind, but due to the time it would take to add I don't plan on doing this anytime soon.

    In addition, it's not only string replacement, but gui can be affected as well. Imagine a string in english which is now x pixels in width, but in language y the same string is longer. The whole ui would have to be made dynamic ( or the translations will have to keep in mind the max string length the ui has now.
