Language Manager

The Language Manager dialog box lets you define the project's languages for localization. You can specify the languages that you want to include in your project, as well as set the volume offset (make-up gain) for each one. You can also specify which language will act as your reference language when you import or convert language files. The reference file can also be used in place of a file that is missing.

The Language Manager queues all requested language actions (Add/Remove/Rename). Clicking the OK button executes all pending language actions. Clicking the Cancel button discards all pending language actions.
