Foreign Language Support

We have added foreign language interfaces beginning with build 5.10 (Desktop) and build 3.10 (Fax Server). Currently, the following languages are supported: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese (Portugal), Portuguese (Brazil), Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Czech, Catalan, Slovak, Hungarian, Solvenian and Turkish

Note: use Settings | Choose Language on the fax server's menu or in snappy fax desktop, click the Application button (large circle button upper left of main window) then select "Choose Language" to select a different language.

About the Translations

The translations from our native English to the currently supported foreign languages are machine translations. More specifically we used Google translate to automate the translation process. This allowed us to get a translated version published in a much shorter period of time.

We understand that machine translations are not entirely accurate, but it is a good starting point.

Now that we have that starting point we can fine tune the translations for more accuracy. We have had many offers from users in the past to provide us with translation help, we much appreciate that! If you would like to help us with translation inaccuracies please send an email to translationhelp@snappysoftware.com

We especially need some guidance on how button captions might be re-translated to provide a much shorter caption. You will notice on the snappy fax ribbon bar that many buttons have become small and may not show a caption at all as the ribbon will resize itself to provide a 'best fit' often at the expense of the caption. One or two words in English might translate into 5 or more in some languages like French or Spanish.

We have developed a translation helper application that we can send to those who would like to help with translation inaccuracies which will assist you in providing corrections and assist us with quickly updating current translations, in order to publish them promptly.

Currently we are limited to supporting languages, the alphabet of which is contained in the Ascii 0-255 Character range. The primary reason for this is that the underlying database engine does not support UniCode. Due to this we were unable to include Greek and Hebrew in the supported languages. We greatly regret this as we have a lot of loyal users in Greece and in Israel.
