Замечание для русских переводчиков

Для перевода Вы можете использовать русский языковой файл. Русский перевод пользовательского интерфейса поддерживается самими разработчиками и содержит всё необходимое для перевода. Процедура перевода точно такая же, как и описано выше. Только используйте в качестве отправного файл Russian.lng, вместо файла примера LocalizeExample.lng.
