Translate Lightshot Website

We would be so happy if you can help us and translate the website! Website translation process is a bit different from translating application but it still easy as pie. To translate Lightshot website you need to download original English translation. There are several files to translate one for each of Website page and a speaial one with common strings across all the pages. You can open translation files in your text editor. Standard Windows Notepad will do just fine for that. You just need to replace default English text with your translation.

Let say we want to translate Lightshot into Spanish. Lets take a look on strings\prntscr\en\index.php.strings.txt. This file holds strings for our main index page on The file contents is goes like

# New screenshots on Twitter

[[twitter_header_title]]=[[New screenshots on Twitter]]

And that should become

# New screenshots on Twitter

[[twitter_header_title]]=[[Nuevas capturas de pantalla en Twitter]]

Translation folders are very similar to our webiste structure, but it also has a special file named common.strings.txt which holds translation for similar string shared between different pages.
